Principal update

There is great work happening here!


My name is Mike Kleiner. I’m the incoming Principal at Discovery High School and the luckiest educator in the State of Washington. I’m not trying to sugar up to anyone here – I have landed in the best job a person could hope for.

Why? There is one number that says it all: 17%

In 2017 Discovery High School had a 17% increase in our graduation rate. I will be the first to tell you – I had nothing to do with that; but it’s why I feel so fortunate. I get to work with a highly professional, ferociously dedicated staff. As I have gotten to know these folks, I have been continually impressed by both their care for our kids and their shared focus on graduation and preparation for life ahead.

Whether you are considering Discovery, or are a returning student or parent, we look forward to talking to you.

Best wishes for a great start to the year.
