My experience at Martin L. Nesbitt Discovery Academy has been outstanding. Their encouragement of family involvement made the application/acceptance process very welcoming. I feel like I am part of a team of like-minded students who are study focused and highly motivated for success. I feel very fortunate to have been accepted to this S.T.E.M. school my Freshman year and have this amazing learning experience from hand selected teachers/instructors who love their jobs as well as their students. My school has provided a challenging, hands-on approach to learning that I will take with me into the future as I work to make a positive difference in this world. Thank you!

My High School is incredibly small, our maximum capacity is four hundred students. This microscopic size breeds incredibly tight woven social webs and friendships. Our school is fed into by all the middle schools in the county resembling a melting pot of political, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. This diverse blend fills me with pride every day I attend school, attempting to transcend the boundaries that the world tried so desperately to impose. Democrat or Republican, Religious or Atheist, always such incredible social polarization. As a teenager it's incredibly difficult escape this segregation of ideology. So I take pride that my place of learning greatly inhibits such blatant discrimination with an accepting atmosphere.
Nesbitt Discovery Academy is an incredible public school in Asheville, NC. You do have to complete a pretty intense application process and only 100 students are selected per grade. Overall its a great public school that takes the science and math route of education very seriously
