About This School

Discovery Charter School is located in Chula Vista, CA and is one of 46 elementary schools in Chula Vista Elementary School District. It is a charter school that serves 784 students in grades K-6.

Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Discovery Charter School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Discovery Charter School Reviews

Great School

By , a Parent on

My children go to this school and they love it, they have great learning tools. The staff are kind the treat the children like there own. I recommend this school to any one in the 91910 zip code area.

It has pretty good activities, but I don't like that they expect the children to go to school no matter how sick they are. They can only stay home or get sent home if they have a fever. They didn't call me when my son threw up and made him go back to school after having diarrhea. They also only have a few really good teachers.
