We have been in DCS for more than 5 years now and the direction that the Campus at DCS I is taking makes us glad we are leaving. What was once was a vibrant and passionate school has turned into a bureaucracy under the complete lack of leadership of Dale Jones and Debby Perry. The "executive director" ...  Read more

We have been at DCS for 6 years, my daughter went from 3rd grade to 8th Grade. There are times when I have been concerned about the academics, it looked like she wasn't learning and homework was minimal even through Middle School.

I am proud of our school. We have been here since its inception, understanding the philosphy of the school. It is light on homework, but the upside is that it has given us the time to have piano lessons, dance class, swim team, and other activities without feeling stressed. The school's API scores ...  Read more

This review is for Discovery 2, which opened in August, 2013. First, let me say that Discovery's philosophy, particularly as espoused by Dale Jones, is incredibly appealing. Students are welcomed and accepted for who they are and parents and educators alike are introduced to the Positive Discipline ...  Read more

I have seen my children blossom at Discovery Charter School. The dedication of the staff and family community provide for a supportive environment that promotes a life long love of learning. My kids come home with smiles on their faces and talk about what they are learning and doing at school and on ...  Read more

This is for Discovery Two. We have only been there for two weeks, but we are absolutely loving the transition from private catholic school. The whole environment is more relaxing and all the adults seem to want to be there for their kids.

I'm down to just one child at DCS now. He loves it, and is an active participant in his education. He is very comfortable approaching his teachers and other parents. The parent teacher conferences are student led. Since the child prepares for the presentation to the parents and evaluates what he is accomplished ...  Read more

Test Year: 2012
Discovery Charter School
Santa Clara Co. Off. Of Education
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
