How to get a student discount on Microsoft Office?

I think that Word is a better word processor than Google Docs, although Docs is generally good enough. In the business world, Excel is still generally the standard for spreadsheets. With my son entering high school next month, I think it is in my son’s long term interest to use Office than one of the other alternatives. Can I get a student discount on Microsoft Office for a high school student?
Microsoft has a website for their educational discount program that lists discounts and freebies for students. You might find some useful information on this page for things beyond Office. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/students/deals/default.aspx

With respect to Office, you can get Office 365 for free "with a valid school email address." Just go to this Microsoft website and enter the school email address to check if it is recognized. I'm not sure if the school had to sign up for the program with Microsoft or if it applies to all schools.
