I concur with the previous contender in saying discovery ridge is a terrible school that has terrible teachers, principal, and staff and don't even deserve a one star rating

This school tried to put its best foot forward. And it's great that the principals of character, being responsible, respectful and caring is taught. However, there are some wide gaps between what the parents need, what the kids need, what the teachers need and what administration is providing. There are some really strong grade levels where the teachers work together as a team and it's apparent. If you have younger kids this is probably a good place to start the upper grade levels have some weak links that need to be addressed. We've seen so many families leave; not because they have moved but because they've had to resort to homeschooling or private schooling. It's so sad; this could be a 5-star school but it's got a long way to go.

Discovery Ridge Elementary School is an excellent school that strives to teach students to be responsible, respectful and caring leaders. Teachers put students first and take great interest in each of them as individuals.

Great school that is trying to teach kids to be responsible, respectful and caring. Leadership can only do so much without the involvement and support of the parents instilling these same principles at home.

Disorganized. Poor leadership. Bad attitudes. No accountability or monitoring of teachers. Terrible communication with parents. I could keep going but there are so many issues with this school it would take days. Poor leadership comes from the top as there is no control of teachers. Parents complain about the teachers attitudes, poor teaching skills, and class demeanor. Every system in place is a disorganized mess with no direct planning from the leaders. It's all left to the teachers who have zero experience running or planning anything. I've seen many families leave this school due to incompetent leadership, teachers with poor skills, and rude staff. It makes you want to move!
