Discovery Middle School serves approximately 820 middle school students in the northern portion of the Penn Harris Madison School Corporation located in Granger, Indiana. This 165,400-square-foot building was built in 1996.


In 2007, the Penn Harris Madison School Corporation partnered with Energy Education, Inc. to create a people-based energy conservation program that emphasizes changing the habits of building occupants. Thanks to the efforts of about 70 dedicated employees, the energy savings at Discovery have increased dramatically and the building has received the ENERGY STAR for two consecutive years.


Built in 1996, Discovery is one of Penn Harris Madison?s newer schools. Most of the building?s energy savings come from dedicated staff members who reduced the run time of equipment that is not constantly used, including lights, computers, and HVAC systems. Staff members have also learned how to control room environments through the efficient use of windows and window blinds. Also, more than 250 outdated computers were replaced with energy-efficient units. All of these improvements have helped the building to earn the ENERGY STAR.
