Discovery Charter School: Named One of Top Ten Schools in New Jersey


Congratulations to the Discovery Charter School in Newark, New Jersey, one of just a few schools statewide to be recognized as a Top 10 School by JerseyCAN: The New Jersey Campaign for Achievement Now. 



Discovery Charter School has been recognized as a Top 10 School for elementary school performance gains. To assess how well a school is helping students make performance gains from year to year, JerseyCan averages the one-year change in proficiency in reading and math across all levels at that school from the 2011 cohort of students to the 2012 cohort of students. For schools that serve multiple grade levels (such as a K-12 school), they report achievement results for each level and provide separate report cards for the elementary, middle and high school. Discovery Charter School’s high score in this category is a testament to the amazing achievements of their student body. The school utilizes its own variation of The Harkness Table approach to education, pioneered at Exeter Academy by Edward Harkness in 1931.
