My understanding is the real problem with convict cichlids is when they pair up and breed. They become very territorial and defend their young. I can’t say much about schooling fish but I don’t think discus would do well trying to defend themselves against angry convict parents.

If it were me I would probably add bigger fish that could defend themselves, Oscars, Jack Dempsey, Jaguar cichlids etc. Though some research would need to be done on individual Fish depending on parameters and such
