Urban Discovery Academy Charter School Reviews

Urban Discovery is an amazing school with a focus on design-thinking, student centric, project based learning principles. My daughter has been at the school for 10years! I am thrilled that she has had this unique school experience. I so wish my mother could have taught in a creative, quality school like this one. Families, staff and students are wonderfully collaborative.

The academics are great, the teachers help, and everyone gets along very well. Although it's not as big as most schools, it is still a great place to keep focus. There are no pep rallies or anything, but I personally think this gives students a chance to focus on their work and moving up. The teachers are always open and willing to help.
