The Discovery School Opening and Dedication of the I.D.R.E.A.M. Innovate. Design. Research. Explore. Adapt. Make. Elementary & Middle School Building

Published Monday, September 9, 2019

The Discovery School has been a community leader in personalized, learner-centric education for 30 years. We believe the most powerful tool we can give a child is an educated voice and the confidence to use it. Students at The Discovery School spend their days in unique learning environments that encourage knowledge, independent thinking, global awareness, creativity, and mutual respect in a safe, nurturing environment. We are the only school in Northeast Florida, and one of only a handful of schools in the nation, that blends an authentic Montessori curriculum with the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.

The 2019-20 academic year is the inaugural year of Discovery’s Middle School program serving students in 7th & 8th grade! The new building was made possible by a partnership with Moducomm Construction and also includes a full Music studio, STEM/Arts lab, and World Language classrooms.


Build. Grow. Inspire.
