The Fine Arts Departments are establishing themselves on their own accords. The Band Department just recently went to Orlando last summer (per invitation of Universal Studios) to perform in a parade, and they've won countless trophies for performance. The Chorus Department has secured the first two Superior Ratings ever at the school, for LGPE Performance. The Theatre Department has produced a national placing acting (second place) in The August Wilson Monologue Competition. They have produced the only All-State performing Thespian from the county for this year's Opening Number in the 2018 Thespian Conference. The Dance Department produces performers that acquire scholarships from the likes of Kennesaw State University.Discover also has nationally recognized societies established in the school. It is time for the school to recognize what the Fine Arts Department brings to Discovery's Table.

The school and it’s staff for the most part were great! There were a few teachers staff members that should have not been there, rude teachers, ignorant security, and a few terrible students. Sports were great; so were the academics.
I was moved to Discovery a few years ago when they redistricted my area into over there during my senior year of high school and it was very well! Had the chance to meet new people and be a part of a club and sport over there for a while! Proud to be a Titan! But, the school needs to change up the rules and scenery there because there was often a lot of fights and drama caused by some of the students.
