Discovery Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

We love Discovery. I had children at Purdy for 2 years and with the redistricting, were moved over to Discovery for 2 of my children. The open classroom plan had me nervous but the teachers have it down really well and I feel my girls are getting a great experience. The curriculum is standard and I wish there were more activities available in the form of clubs etc, but all the basics are there and the staff is just awesome.

I have two boys that love going to school here. But the school has adopted the common core curriculum. I was told they had no choice by one person, which is a lie. The schools are being paid by the federal government to start teaching from common core material which is designed to make kids literally stupid. Sound crazy, just try reading some of the instructions on your child's homework and see who's crazy. My boy asked me for help and after reading two sentences of instructions, I was going to lose my mind, I couldn't figure out what it was trying to tell me to do, it didn't make any sense, and it certainly was NOT logical. And this was a first grade homework assignment. So I did some more research on the internet about common core and I almost can't believe what I am finding out about this. Why didn't the principle look into this before adopting it? Oh I see, its all about money, of course.

I have two kids at Discovery in 3rd and 5th grades. They have had wonderful experiences since coming to the school 2 years ago. Their teachers have blessed my kids with encouragement, tools for life, and the love of learning. Discovery is up to date on its curriculum, but I do wish there were a bit more pressure on the students to excel rather than get by with average work. I have 4 children though, and Discovery was not a good fit for my other 2 because they had learning disabilities. The teachers and principal made it known these 2 did not fit the mold. We homeschool them now and have seen great strides in their academics and self confidence. If a child doesn't have learning issues, Discovery is wonderful.

We recently relocated back to Gig Harbor, after living in Ohio and Texas for 4 years. Our 8 year old son, having had 5 teachers in 3.5 years, due to corporate moves, maternity leave, and grade changes, adapted WONDERFULLY into the Wriley Community in 3rd grade at Discovery Elementary. His teachers tell us they would have never guessed our son had only started there a few weeks ago...he walks through the halls and knows teachers and students by name and shows he feels comfortable by his smiles and good behavior and his good grades. The school principal, Mr. Brooks takes time to get to know each student and parent and has worked with staff to create a fun, intimate, healthy learning arena where our son is blooming. We love Discovery!

We sent our son to Discovery for a couple of years, and the teachers were wonderful. I do think they spend a lot of their time controlling noisy student behavior though. The school has a very open lay-out. The students are noisy, and the expectations that they be kids hampered my son's ability to focus and learn. I think the expectations for most of the students are too low, and that those children who don't excel on their own are not expected to learn much. We finally decided to put our son elsewhere, where the expectations were higher, and where he is able to focus better.
