The Discovery program serves elementary, middle, and high school students experiencing significant social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. The goal is to have students develop sufficient internal discipline so that little external reinforcement is required. In addition to the behavior management system, social and emotional goals are taught daily. Specific instruction enables students to learn problem solving, decision-making, and social skills. In addition, there is a strong emphasis upon academic instruction that is individually determined.
