Open Quote Discovery is a wonderful school. Their program combines academics with developmental instruction. Enrichments such as art, technology, gardening & cooking are integrated throughout instruction. The field trips are so integrated with instruction and are an extension of the classroom. This make learning relevant, interesting and fun. The school is parent participation, K-8. 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.
