  • Denver Discovery School reviewed by a parent

    Denver Discovery is a troubled school and I would not recommend it at this time. Staff turnover is high which is disruptive to learning. So far this year, my child has lost 3 teachers and I am aware of 3 others that have left as well. In addition, the principal, vice principal, and interim principal left. Bullying is also a problem. Although my child has not been bullied, I know other families who are struggling to get the school to adequately address this. Large class sizes are also a problem and this is made worse by the significant behavioral issues within the school. My child comes home talking about out-of-control classrooms where teachers are in tears and kids are yelling obscenities and refusing to leave the classroom when asked. How can any child learn in this environment? It doesn't help that most of the teachers are quite young and likely lack experience to deal with this. The district sent some type of intervention team in to deal with these issues and others (including some racial tensions it sounded like) but it doesn't seem to have helped yet. We ve never seen such poor grades from our child. I've reached out to teachers and one of the interim principals (2 since the start of the year) for help and to express my concerns and I am unhappy with the school's response. I've emailed my child's teachers and received no response multiple times. The 2nd interim principal (previous teacher and now assistant principal) made multiple requests to my child's teachers to email us to keep us updated on classroom progress. This has yet to happen. The lack of respect for school leadership this shows is a worrisome sign. Overall, I do not think this school is capable of providing a good learning environment at this time. They recently hired a new principal and perhaps eventually she can fix the problems but it's going to take time. I don't want my child's education to suffer while the school gets their act together. Like other families, I am hoping to get my child into another school next year.
