11 Parent Reviews for Discovery Middle School

Good school, but I hear about so many expulsions, detentions, and suspensions. There is drug use and alcohol that I hear about in the bathrooms, even for the sixth graders. Teachers make me feel uncomfortable and you have to choose your friends VERY wisely.

I currently have a daughter in 7th grade at Discovery and my son graduated last year. I like the curriculum, the music program, and the willingness of the staff to work with you on assisting your child. The teachers and the principal are accessible via email and/or face to face visits. The principal ...  Read more

Worst middle school. The rules are ridiculous! If my child were to be beaten up, and my child tried to fight back, or even just block themselves, they'd be suspended. They give 'turning the other cheek' a whole new meaning! The principal isn't exactly mean, but he doesn't do anything. The assistant principal ...  Read more

Being a first year middle school parent, I was a little nervous about sending my daughter there. However, she ended up loving her school thanks to the inspiring teachers she has. She's discovered that she loves social studies due to the fact that she has an amazing social studies teacher who is younger ...  Read more

My son is on his second year at Discovery. I find it to be an exceptional learning experience. The school is extremely clean, and when we went to the open house everything was very well organized. I have been very pleased with all the Plymouth/ Canton schools. We should be very proud.

I have mixed feelings about the school. Initially my child was very excited about going to middle school but now he hates it. There is so much, too much, homework. It makes no sense to have a child be in school all day and then have to come home and do 3 hours of homework 4-5 days a week. Also, the ...  Read more

About half the teachers seem to enjoy their job, while the other half seem disgruntled.

Posted by a parent on 09/16/08

In the beginning, the school appeared to be the choice school. Heads were turned as bullying took place many times. Disciplinary action was not always fair, putting the responsibility upon the parent to pursue necessary action. Many teachers are outstanding, but there are a few who react in a personal, ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Discovery Middle School
Plymouth-canton Community Schools
* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
