Open Quote My Daughter has been at Discovery since the 1st grade (she is in the 4th now). We love this school, the structure of the school is very good. Academically, I believe that Discovery goes above and beyond, they definitely make sure that the parents are very much involved. We unfortunately will be moving at the end of this school year. It saddens me, this is the only school our daughter has known. She will be having to go through the new friend phase and it breaks my heart. Honestly, if my husbands new job did not have to take us out of the desert (selfish mom, me I, me, me want and can't wait to get out of this desert!) I would allow my husband the commute down the the hill, only to allow our daughter to finish her years out at Discovery, this is how happy I am over this school. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
