Discovery Philosophy & Mission Statement
At Discovery International School, we believe that every child is unique and learns differently from their peers. It is our aim for our students to discover not only how to learn, but how they learn. A love of learning is one of the most precious gifts we could give a child, and we hope to instill that in each of our students. With this goal in mind, we have created a holistic education that uses the world-renowned International Baccalaureate Program, coupled with a tremendous emphasis on music, art, drama, innovation, nutrition, and physical education. Although Discovery is not a Christian school, it is rooted in Christian values. We believe that faith is a big part of holistic education, and we will teach Christian values and educate our students on Christianity as well as the other main world religions. We also believe that making mistakes is critical to learning. We will create a safe space where we will tackle challenges head-on without fear and celebrate our successes as well as what we learn from our mistakes. It took more than 1,000 tries to successfully invent the light bulb. Each one of those mistakes was just as valuable as a success because they narrowed and focused the path of understanding and learning.
