Welcome from the Head of Schools

It has always been my belief that there are three key factors for a child to reach his or her fullest learning potential; the teacher, the student, and the parents.  With Discovery Academy’s intentional focus on the social and emotional development of children, experienced Montessori and certified, academic teaching staff, a clear focus on providing individual learning opportunities, and positive school culture, I believe every student who enters through our doors can and will achieve at the highest level.

At Discovery Academy, we aim to develop and nurture well-rounded students.  Our vision is to provide the students and community members of Big Sky with educational choices so that they can discover their passion, and potential and create meaningful lives.   Our leadership and teaching teams are skilled and experienced professionals working collaboratively to share both the American curriculum and Montessori learning goals and objectives.

In this spirit, Discovery Academy will continue to enrich the communities and families we serve.  We will strive to create healthy, exciting, real-world learning experiences for students and families in the Big Sky community.  I want to welcome you to our Discovery Academy school family.

All the best,
Mr. Scott Poloff, M. Ed.


Discover your potential.
