This was my son's first year at Ben Davis. I found the new principal to be great, helpful and knew about the kids. My son's teacher was fabulous and did an awesome job of keeping him challenged. We moved here from another state two years ago and have found DCS phenominal! Any parent who is considering allowing their child to go to Ben Davis Magnet do not hesisate! This is a top-notch school. Parents, there are plenty of opportunities to get invoved if you wish. Be prepared for send a few extra dollars every few weeks for extra activities, t-shirts and such.
