Wonderful kindergarten teachers that do not get the recognition they so deserve. My child graduated kindergarten tonight and not one thank you from any of the managment team for the wonderful job the teachers did. The school leaders seem to require all the attention. So thank you woderful teacher.

Discover U is an amazing place. As a parent I read every review and I have to be honest. Those complaining of large class size and chaos obviously have no intrinsic understanding of the Montessori Method and the core concept of "follow the child". The school's program is relatively new and I do feel that some allowance must be made in order to allow for the transition to full Montessori but the effect over the past two academic years is very obvious. I do feel that they are a bit understaffed. Their 6-9 teacher seems to spend a bit too much time alone with about 30 kids but she is utterly remarkable and, perhaps, the purest Montessorian in the facility. I look forward to watching the school's development along with that of the students.

I definitely recommend Discover U! I was so overwhelmed in choosing a good school for my son's kindergarten year, and when I heard about Discover U starting up in our area, I was intrigued. The more I learned about the Montessori approach, got to know the teachers, staff, and principal (Mrs. Nahrgang), and walked through the process of enrollment, I was more than convinced that this would be a great choice for our whole family.... And it has been!! My son not only thrived in his "book" learning, but also in his social and practical life skills. My husband and I were very excited to continue his education here this year, and to also enroll our preschooler. Any time there has been a question, concern, or problem, the staff and teachers have been very quick to resolve it. Communication is good. All are treated with respect. The kids are in a safe environment - I have never once feared leaving them - and the couple times they haven't felt well, they've been well cared for until they can be picked up. Discover U is an excellent place of learning, safety, fun, structure, and practical-life teaching. We are so glad to have our children attend here.

Would not recommend. My student was bullied by the staff, and students. They have a poor layout for classrooms with limited accessibility to bathrooms. If you care about child safety, this is not the place, they do not have a school nurse to assist with young children. God forbid your child has an accident, slip, or fall, no trained professional on site. They will hire a "guidance counselor" before a school nurse. This place was an eye opener for anyone looking for a school for their kids, please explore more options!

We enrolled our daughter at Discover U for kindy for the 2014/2015 school year. I was struggling with the idea of putting her into school and was considering homeschooling. I heard about Discover U from one of my online mom groups. I loved that they had a Montessori approach. We do not live near the school and the drive is absolutely worth it (about 80mi/day). Mrs. Narhgang, the principal, is out greeting students and their parents by name each morning and helping get the students back into the cars in the afternoon (where other staff members join to help such as teachers, the vice principal, office manager and guidance counselor). Our daughter is very shy and she is thriving and doing so well. She has learned so much in the near year she has attended this school. They picked up on her need for speech therapy early and the IEP process went smoothly. I have enjoyed interacting with all the various staff members. They encourage not only parents to come and volunteer at the school but grandparents too! I couldn't be happier to have found this school.
