This academic accomplishment is remarkable since Discovery has had an at-risk preference for admissions for 2 consecutive years. A student is considered at-risk if they are eligible for free and reduced lunch, identified as special education, or reads 2 grades below grade level. Discovery has made great progress over the last 2 years to reach at-risk enrollment goals. Discovery currently has a student body comprised of 74% at-risk students.
Discovery has been educating students since 2013. The school earned a high “B” in its first year and an “A” the second and third years. Presently in its fourth year of educating students in grades Pre-K through 9th grade, Discovery looks forward to more successes. The school will continue to add a grade level each year until reaching its full realization as a Pre-K through 12th school with its first graduating class in 2020.
Discovery is currently accepting applications for grades Pre-K through 10th for the 2017-2018 school year now through February 17, 2017. All Jefferson Parish residents are eligible to apply.
