I read the aug 2012 review and think that parent wrote a review on the wrong school! She was talking about a charter school! Crazy. I have three kids at discovery cove child care and have never had any issues. My husband and I feel like they are a trusted part of the family. I wouldn't be able to leave them if I didn't feel they were in a safe, loving and nurturing environment.
My child attended the Discovery school since 2010 . Although he did fine academically, bullying and physical fighting was a huge problem, especially in the later elementary grades and middle school. Young, inexperienced teachers were overwhelmed with classroom responsibilities and lacking the maturity to deal social issues. If you are considering sending your kids to Discovery Charter School, be very careful; ask parents in the Chesterton what they think about Discovery, talk to the local community school teachers about the number of kids who've left Discovery and returned to the public schools (there are many). Don't know how this school received a 5 Star Rating.
