Welcome to Discovery Elementary School!
The dedicated and nurturing staff at Discovery Elementary are committed to meeting all students' developmental needs, academic engagement, and instilling a love for learning. Our building supports students in young fives, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. Discovery focuses on the young learner's unique needs and strives to create a fun, nurturing, and exciting learning environment.
Students at Discovery Elementary receive evidence-based instruction in English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science. We support our young learners and strive to meet each student's learning needs through Multi-tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS). In addition to our core instruction, Discovery encourages and values the creativity of our students. Incorporating the arts and technology is evident in daily practices in our classrooms and our esteemed programs.
The talented teachers and staff at Discovery provide a positive learning environment and school culture. We support students' social, emotional, and physical needs through our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Program (PBIS). Our PBIS program is evident in our building's daily practices and encourages students to be Kind, Safe, Cooperative, and Respectful.
We look forward to a school year full of new experiences, growth, discovery, and fun and are thankful for the Williamston Community's continued support!
CANCELLATION: The Rockin' Into K Camp for incoming Kindergarten and Young Fives students has been canceled. Those who registered should be contacted by enrichment staff regarding refunds.
