    Welcome to Alexandria Public Schools


    Our mission is:

    "To achieve educational excellence and

    to inspire a life-long passion for learning.”

    At Discovery Middle School we are very proud of our school, our programs, and our students.  It is our goal to continue to improve our student’s learning in all areas by not only teaching the academic skills needed to be prepared for life, but to personalize each student’s learning experiences as well.  At Discovery Middle School, it is our goal to reach “Every Student…Every Day.”
    Discovery Middle School wants to stretch the aspirations of our students in more imaginable ways to allow for student success.  We feel a school environment should contain lively, energetic, and engaged students where they are ready to take on challenges with spirit, passion and energy unique to this age group!  We are committed to meeting the academic needs of our middle school students as well as the social and emotional needs to give them the best opportunity to be successful.  We have achieved success by everyone working toward a common goal: preparing our students for all of the opportunities that await them.
    It is the expectation of the Discovery Middle School community that we act responsibly and treat each other with fairness, respect, honesty, and kindness.  With the ongoing support and involvement of our parents and communities, we embrace the many opportunities to learn, teach, and appreciate the unique gifts that we can offer to one another.
    We welcome you to Alexandria and Discovery Middle School, home of the Cardinals!
