Discovery Charter School opened as public school of the Chula Vista Elementary School District (CVESD) in 1993. In 1994, a contingent of parents, staff, and community supporters approached the CVESD Board with the idea of an innovative program for the creation of a charter school. In 1995, Discovery Charter School opened its doors as a conversion charter authorized by the Chula Vista Elementary School District. DCS, though fiscally independent, maintains a very collaborative and cooperative partnership with the Chula Vista Elementary School District, its authorizing agent.
