Discovery Middle School Reviews

Excellent! I’ve had two children complete middle school at DMS in recent years. I can definitely say that this school has something for everyone! Honors courses, various electives, sports, and any type of club imaginable. Invested teachers, administrators, and coaches who really take the time to get to know each child and family are really what set this school apart though.

Discovery Middle School was a place where I met many new friends and people. The teachers there are great, they are nice and make sure that you understand what they are teaching you. Discovery also has many different classes you can take that helped me and got me ready for high school such as public speaking and study skills. One thing I did not like about Discovery was that the blocks rotated around to different times of the day every week because it was difficult to keep track of that.
Terrible experience overall. teachers extremely unhelpful, very hostile environment, always rumors of sex is the bathrooms, etc.
