Why Choose Us?
Discovery International School provides English-based, research-supported instruction to children of all cultural and linguistic backgrounds, with individualized attention to all areas of growth: personal, social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and linguistic.

We dedicate ourselves to respect for children’s rights and voices. We share with children the responsibility of determining paths to new knowledge and holistic growth.

We commit ourselves to continuous professional learning in the fields of early childhood and language development.

Guiding Principles:

- *All children are worthy and capable of love, joy, and respect
School experiences must be joyful, respectful and full of love!

- *All children are capable of negotiating relationships and rules
Children must be allowed to experiment with social expectations.

- *All children possess worthwhile personal knowledge, interests, and questions
Quality learning experiences expand upon children’s own inquiries.

- *All children communicate meaningfully through multiple ‘languages’: speech, song, painting, dance, sculpture, and so much more

- *Every child’s communication thrives when somebody listens and encourages
Quality instruction helps children clarify thoughts, reflect on experiences, and discover new questions of personal relevance.

- *Learning is social, not passive
Learning is a social negotiation of understanding and meaning. The primary voice is the child’s (as opposed to the teachers’).

- *Every child's development proceeds at an individual pace
Quality instruction recognizes and supports each child’s capabilities.

- *Each child has naturally preferred learning proclivities
Quality instruction provides a wide range of opportunities to acquire and display skills and concepts: artistically, musically, linguistically, physically, dramatically, and more. Quality education encourages and celebrates all learner proclivities equally.
