Our Mission

Discovery Charter School exists to develop students who are independent productive citizens in their educational careers and beyond. Students acquire academic knowledge and skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, citizenship, and character. This happens within a context of integrated literacy driven curriculum focused on STEAM and based on all state content standards, including the Common Core State Standards (“CCSS”), Next Generation Science Standards (“NGSS”), the English Language Development (“ELD”) Standards, the History Social Science Framework, the Common Core en Español, and all other applicable content standards (hereinafter, collectively “State Standards”), National Core Arts Standards and Social Emotional Learning (SEL). At DCS, students are at the heart of all decision making. We are focused on instructional and academic excellence. Our teachers spend an extensive amount of time planning integrated lessons that have real life connections. Through purposeful standards-based instruction, students leave our school prepared to be successful lifelong learners.
