Discovery School Houses
This unique concept comes from the Ron Clark Academy. Several DS teachers have visited this school and have seen firsthand how powerful Houses can be in a school environment. It helps promote leadership, community, character, positive behavior, teamwork, and so much more.
There are four Houses at Discovery School. At the beginning of a student's first year at DS they blindly select a color and are placed in the House that matches the color. This becomes the House the student is part of throughout their school years at Discovery School.
