What Is Discovery?

Discovery Class builds on strengths and potential, is intellectually challenging, enriches individual learning, and gives the students opportunities to interact with other gifted students in a challenging manner. The Discovery students are challenged to solve problems, make decisions and explore their own interests. The Discovery Class is a pull out program for qualifying students to meet for 150 minutes a week outside of their regular classroom.


Junior High School TAG

There will be a minimum of six sessions throughout the school year, each taking place monthly from September thru May and lasting the duration of one school day.  These sessions consist of four Field Trips and two In-service Days.

Students will have access to a Remind 101 texting service to be in contact with me as needed.  

Please visit our Discovery Facebook page for more up-to-date pictures and information.  The page is Mrs. Austin's Discovery Class.  Follow me on Twitter @amandajoyaustin.

My email is austin.amanda@desoto.k12.mo.us if you ever have any questions.  With travelling between both elementary buildings and the Junior High, this is the easiest way to get ahold of me.
