Discovery is a diverse and inclusive independent day school that educates students aged 18 months to 12 years in a unique program blending the Montessori curriculum with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program framework.

to fully experience our academically challenging learning environment
in a personalized way. Differentiation occurs for students at every
level, giving children the freedom to move ahead in areas they have
mastered and allowing for extra work in areas of emerging mastery. Our
students of all ages participate in foreign language, STEaM, and our
Youth Philanthropy Program. We strive to ensure that each child's
culture, language, ethnicity, and family structure are recognized and
valued in our program. Discovery is a special place that encourages

The Faculty of the school is made up of a combination of certified

resplendent with a myriad of natural features such as a canopy of mature
Live Oaks, edible schoolyard, gardens, natural pathways and an inner
courtyard that lends a village style atmosphere.
