Principal update

Fall 2018 Principal Update

I am grateful to return as the Principal of Discovery High School. We aspire to nothing less than becoming the premier alternative high school in the State of Washington.

I spent last year getting to know everybody, from students to teachers and the community of Longview. I stand by my words of last year, that we have a, “highly professional, ferociously dedicated staff.” Nothing could be more true. Our teachers are the heart of what we do here, and I’ve seen them do amazing work with our kids.

Last June we graduated 49 young women and men. 49! That is a testament to our kids’ hard work and our staff’s dedication. That was 7 x 7… maybe our slogan should be 8 x 8 ?

Thanks, again, for entrusting us with your kids’ education. We will honor that trust by making our best effort to see them across the finish line.

Best Wishes,
Mike Kleiner
