Welcome to Discover U Elementary School
A Montessori Approach to Learning
Discover Learning...Discover U
Discover U is a small, beautiful. thriving learning community where children - and their parents - are known and loved!
It's perfectly convenient, and for those in the West Valley and Luke AFB, it's located right on the way to work. We offer low cost pre-K and free tuition for grades K-6 with exceptional, qualified teachers who give nurturing, personal attention to students. You'll also find your children will advance faster with our Montessori approach to education that emphasizes discovery and exploration through hands on learning.
Children and parents enjoy a range of fun activities that include our Winter Program, Career Days, Discover U Day at Diamondbacks and much more. We have a full-size gym with PE, sports and activities that engage and inspire our students.
What Is Montessori Education?
Discover U's focus is to build a strong foundation in learning by introducing and using the Montessori model to our Pre-K and Kindergarten students (ages 3-5). Our foundation for learning will start with our Pre-K and Kindergarten age group in our first year and continue with those students through their educational journey at Discover U.
Discover U will continue to offer dual tracks. The 2014-15 school year will offer Montessori education to Pre-K and Kindergarten enrolled in the Montessori Children's House classroom as well as a traditional track for our enrolled Kindergarten students. The students who were enrolled in the Montessori Children's House for the 2013-2014 school year will transition into the Lower Elementary Montessori Classroom for the 2014-2015 school year. All other students enrolled at Discover U will follow the traditional educational track that encompasses the Montessori Approach. The eventual and overarching goal of Discover U is to offer a Montessori education to all students. The progression to be a fully incorporated Montessori school will take time. With this being the case, we will continue to offer the traditional educational track at Discover U with the Montessori approach embedded into the delivery of our lessons.
At Discover U, all students will be encouraged to learn through discovery and exploration. We will incorporate the integration of the Montessori model with all age groups, while our journey to a complete Montessori program evolves. This means that all students joining our student body at Discover U will be able to make a seamless transition as we discover learning together.
