1 review for Chicago Discovery Academy High School

  • Reviewed by Staff Member on May 23, 2009
  • Rating: 4 (4 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • Chicago Discovery Academy has a caring staff and a family feel. The small size of the school enables the staff to let every student know he is important, and every parent is invited to participate in the school's activities. The school is an EXCELerator school with a focus of art, architecture and academics. The goal of the school is for every student to be prepared to attend college even if he chooses not to attend.
