Discovery Elementary - 26 Elementary School Reviews
My daughter has been going to Discovery for 3 months and is a kindergartner and we are VERY happy with the school as a whole. The teacher my daughter has is VERY organized as she has been teaching for 24 years. My daughter has made leaps and bounds with her education and she is starting to read.
The school lunches are nutritious but not always tasty. My daughter does bring her own lunch 2-4 times a week to insure that she has a full stomach as they are VERY busy at school and need the fuel.
My daughter has 2 specials each day which include music, computer lab, gym, library (she brings 2 books home each week), book buddies, and Art. (may be missing one)...
They play outside 1-2 times a day for 15 minutes.
I would highly recommend this school to any parent considering a school on the west side of Sioux Falls.
Discovery School is great as are the Teacher and Principal of the school. My children are getting a fantastic education. They take the kids on field trips, serve up nutritious food.
