Language Arts

English Language Arts (ELA)

In the DMS English Language Arts Department, teachers work diligently to help students discover their potential in the language arts. These skills encompass reading, writing, and speaking. Teachers put great emphasis on daily reading and improving writing skills. Through their hard work and enthusiasm for the subject, 95% of the students at Discovery Middle School met or exceeded the high writing standards held by Florida's Department of Education. We also encourage involvement in the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, the Modern Woodsman Oration Contest, and other essay contests throughout the year. From playing Scrabble to depicting scenes from literature, Discovery Middle School helps students experience the joys of language arts while preparing them for the future.
