Discovery is a fantastic school, with caring teachers and staff.  My oldest went to school there and while she's now a high school junior, she still keeps in touch with some of her teachers from elementary school.  I have a daughter in kindergarten there now, and I'm very pleased with the program and just love her teacher!
