Head of School Message

Welcome to Discovery School – An Adventure in Learning!
   As the Head of School, I am delighted to extend a warm and enthusiastic greeting to you and your family. At Discovery School, we believe that education is not just about acquiring knowledge but embarking on an exciting journey of exploration, play and growth. Our commitment to fostering a love for learning and embracing the challenges that come with it makes us truly unique.
   At the heart of our educational philosophy lies the International Baccalaureate (IB) Learner Profile, which permeates every aspect of our school community. We take immense pride in instilling the qualities of being principled, open-minded, caring, and reflective individuals in our students. By embodying these attributes, our students not only excel academically but also become compassionate and empathetic global citizens, ready to take action for positive change in the world.   
   The adventures that await our students are as diverse as they are thrilling. From exploring the wonders of nature in our old growth woods to delving into real-world issues through their units of inquiry, each day at Discovery School is filled with moments of awe and inquiry. Our engaging and challenging curriculum encourages students to think critically, embrace curiosity, and seek solutions to complex problems. This approach not only enhances their academic achievements but also empowers them to face real-life challenges with confidence and creativity. In fact, that is exactly why Discovery School was founded back in 1975; to give students a chance to step away from their desks, to ask questions, and to explore their world. We know (from Discovery School’s many distinguished alumni) that this type of education leads to confident, capable, and creative leaders. 
   Our caring and experienced staff members are the foundation of our thriving learning community. They are dedicated to nurturing the potential of every student, recognizing that each child is unique and capable of achieving greatness. Our teachers foster a supportive and inclusive environment where students feel valued, inspired, and encouraged to reach their full potential.
   I invite you and your family to come and experience the Discovery difference firsthand. Thank you for considering Discovery School as your partner in education. We look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
