Pacific Discovery, Discovery Campus Hilo HI, Fall 2020

Pacific Discovery bit off more than they could chew. They were ill-prepared for launching a new program during a world-wide pandemic. The concept of Discovery Campus was born only 2 months prior to start date, and it showed. Important infrastructure, like WiFi for online learning, was insufficient for the first 3 weeks of the program. Staff time and energy was spent attending to this problem, instead of focusing on program orientation and student transition to college life. One of the two group leaders was unavailable to the students upon their arrival as he was still in quarantine.

I was disappointed with the two group leaders for my daughter's Discovery Campus program. They lacked the maturity and responsibility required to run such a program. Communication was poor and inadequate. Questions were either answered insufficiently or not at all. They were ill-equipped to handle the various obstacles that they confronted. It's a big deal to send your child to live away from home for the first time, and I did not feel comfortable with the supervision and leadership provided.

Response from Pacific Discovery

Dear Eliza,

Thank you for submitting your feedback. We are truly sorry to hear that you felt the program was inadequately resourced and program queries not managed to your satisfaction.

The health and safety of all our students and instructors was paramount going into this past semester, therefore strict guidelines and protocols were put in place and followed for the protection of all. The overwhelming success of Discovery Campus can be attributed to our team's ability to constantly adapt in the face of increasing and changing state restrictions particularly evident in the early quarter of the program.

If your daughter was able to stay for the duration of the program we believe she would have had a different experience, however, we were more than happy to facilitate her and your specific needs during that time.

While no program is perfect, we will be taking the learnings of this semester into the next, as we’re constantly striving to improve and enhance our program experience.

Wishing you all the best, Zach Johnston, Director.
