Skyrocketing Success

Skyrocketing success when faced with adversity isn’t easy, but a kindergartner attending the Discovery School on scholarship is showing how it can be done! In his life, this young student has experienced and responded with unhealthy ways of coping with hardship. With the support and guidance of his teachers, he is learning how to react in a healthy way. When a disagreement with another student occurred recently, his teacher could see he was visibly upset, but rather than responding how he would have weeks ago, he made a great choice in response to his anger by using his words and keeping his hands to himself. He is making life-altering progress and we are all very proud of him!
