We are LOVING DAS.  Such a change in my son's perspective about school. He's very happy here and thank you guys for the warm welcome!
New DAS parent in 2021

We are parents of two Discovery Academy of Science students, that have been attending for over five years now, and we are so thankful for their commitment to giving students the best educational experience possible. The staff, teachers and parent involvement at DAS are above and beyond what most traditional schools have. Their dedication and willingness to help each child, is truly what sets DAS apart from any other school. We are so grateful that DAS is a safe, caring, and overall educationally well-rounded environment that we feel confident sending our children to each day.
Sarah Jenkins, DAS parent since 2014

Outstanding academically and superior job at making kids feel good about themselves. Everyone on this campus seems happy to be at work and it shows in the way they treat everyone. There’s a special kind of commitment that you don’t find in every school. Couldn’t be happier for my grandchildren attending this school.
MaryAnne Fauber, DAS Parent since 2015

My daughter has been going to DAS for 2 years. She loves her school. The teachers and administration are absolutely wonderful...not to mention it's an A rated school! There is no doubt that when she's in school, I leave her in good hands and she's getting a quality education. We are lucky to have found DAS. Thank you for all you do!
Michelle Santiago Smith, DAS Parent, since 2014

My son attended DAS from 2nd through 3rd grade, until we moved out of state this past summer. To this day, he claims that the school was the best school he ever attended, meeting his academic needs. From day 1, we were utterly impressed with the principal and his staff. Their gifted and advanced STEM programs are very thorough. I have never seen a school as dedicated to their students as DAS. 5 stars from the Mayfield family.
Leiselle Mayfield, Former DAS parent 2013-2015

My son just started Kindergarten here and he loves it!!! Love the after school clubs, my son especially likes the LEGO club because he gets to build things. His teacher Ms. Giaimo is also so amazing and very quick to respond to any questions or concerns we may have.
Lisa Vaughan, DAS parent since 2017

My daughter has attended DAS from it's first year. It was a year comming off changes for her home life and a divorce. The school environment was perfect for her, keeping her focused on academics but still having fun. She maintained Principals honor roll that year and made life long friends. She always is excited for school. It is an atmosphere where the students and faculty encourage each other. We have been very happy. Now my daughter loves to learn, to read, and to challenge herself. Every teacher has been fantastic!

My boys came from a public school that was steadily declining. My youngest started last year, and both are going this year. The difference in just one school year has been amazing. From a shy boy that couldn't remember what he did that day in school, to a huge smile and a great story about his day when I pick him up. DAS has been such an amazing experience already! The teachers and staff truly care and your child is not just another statistic or student. They are THEIR student. We love DAS and are excited for the new school year.
Kristie Hansley, DAS parent since 2016

The staff at Discovery Academy are the most caring group of people. They were very supportive of helping my son with the issues he was having. This is definitely the best school for him.
Debbie Moreland, DAS parent since 2016

My granddaughter goes to the Discovery Academy of Science and this is only kindergarten for her, but she loves her school. I ask about the new things she has been doing and is always very excited. She loved the field trip to the farm. She was so tickled when she told me she milked a cow and rode a pony. Thanks for the education she is receiving and enjoying!
