    I have mixed feelings for the school. I just recently moved here from Cedar Rapids thinking the schools will be better. It's all basically the same. I arrived in the middle of the year the teachers didn't cut me any slack they just tried to fit me in with the rest of the students. Before i moved i had A and B in everything but then after i moved here Everything was harder just like that! Ever since i moved here! several times I have heard that when there was bullying going on evetone involved in it including the one being picked on got suspended. At my old school the victim being suspended wasn't even dreamed of happening! Again I really like Fargo the students at the school and the extra curricular activities! I'm just disappointed in the teachers and staff

    I go to Discovery and I love it the teachers are nice students are nice and the teachers make you feel safe.I love to get up every morning and come to discovery middle school.I recomend it to everyone but then again if i did that it would be crowded here. But this school is by far one of the best if not the best in North Dakota!
