Open Quote Discovery is by far the best school in michigan they are truly there for the students not the money like most teachers they have a true passion for what they do the principle jamie treats every student former and presant like they are her own children Close Quote

Open Quote I graduated from Discovery back in 1994 ,When I started there I was having some very serious issues with staying interested in school long enough to make it there everyday.
Discovery was exactly what I needed. Their Independent study curriculum and friendly helpful staff helped me stay focused and probably saved my education.I met lots of life long friends there and formed many other meaningful relationships on campus. Thank you Alternative Education. 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.
