VERY, VERY scary for ANY child to attend this school. I was looking for a school to send my son and I wanted to go look around the school & try to get a tour, I finally found my way to the entrance parking & I ran into a young boy that was outside ALL ALONE, I passed by him and then went back asked what he was doing there & he said that he was fixing words on the sign, well I was there with him for as long as 40 minutes just to see if someone would come out & ask if HE was ok or what I needed, but NO ONE EVER came out, not even a monitor!! Very scary situation as the main road is right there where he was. Told him if I was a bad person, I could have taken him already & no one would have noticed him gone. This kid was sooo small that I covered him with my car, as it's small as well! I ended up driving away, I called to speak to the principle & was not able to talk to her, asked for an asst. principle but I was told that they don't have 1. Have not been able to talk to no one about my concern. DON'T send your kids here as they send them out to do ADULT work ALONE and have no idea about them. Again VERY SCARY!!!
I went to this school from K-5 and I loved it. I want my daughter to go here as soon as she's old enough. They have an excellent Mariachi group here and I always loved the school carnivals.
Davis is an excellent school! Sra. Rivas and Carrasco are great teachers!!! Children who do not speak Spanish at all. Can and will learn in both languages. Also children do art & physical education. Plus lot of other programs like guitar, trumpet, violin. Plus tutoring! It's very safe place and to Oury neighbour hood center is close by recommend this school!
Good school. Sadly though, school has serious dicipline issues--bullies go on without consequences. We will not be returning next year.
After 15 years at Davis, we are sad to be leaving Davis Bilingual. All 4 of our children graduated from Davis. It is a wonderful community of learners. Davis produces well rounded students. The program focuses on each child becoming fluent in both English and Spanish. They have a strong focus on literacy in both languages. The after school program is second to none. The children are offered opportunities to learn mariachi (guitar, violin, trumpet) and to play in the Aguilitas de Davis. They offer folklorico, computers, chess club, a phenomenal art program, cooking, sports and more. We are proud to be part of the Davis community.
We love Davis and so does our child. We don't speak Spanish but are so proud of the great work that Davis does. Our little one sounds like a native speaker! They are also very good in teaching math, science, geography and social science.
It's a real community between parents and staff. It's amazing to see how students can master two languages well!
I recently graduated from davis and that school is the best school ever parents and students will love it outstanding teachers and a wonderful principle
My child went to this school and graduated it is an outstanding school.
My kids are just starting their 4th year at Davis Bilingual Magnet School. Davis is the only public elementary school in Tucson that has a Spanish dual language program. The entire Davis teaching staff was recently awarded the Outstanding Educator Award from the University of Arizona College of Education Alumni Council. This school also has a wonderful music program with the youngest performing mariachi group in Tucson. The teachers and staff are truly dedicated to their students and school. I would recommend Davis Bilingual to any family who would like their child(ren) to be exposed to multiculture, who has a strong desire for them to be bilingual and who is looking for a school that has a strong commitment to academics and music.
My son attended Davis Bilingual last year for Kinder and will attend first grade this year. There are full time teachers aides, excellent teachers, a small school atmosphere, P.E., music and art and a strong PTA. I felt very welcome volunteering on a weekly basis and my son is learning to read, write, do simple math and learn Spanish. I highly recommend Davis Bilingual Magnet School.
Davis Bilingual has provided a great deal of new experiences to both of my daughters. They offer a great bilingual program and the kids are very proud to be bilinguals. They also offer a great music program. Children learn to play a variety of instruments, from guitars to violin and trumphet. They also offer an extended day program where the kids participate in different sessions such as cooking, folkloriko, sports, arts, computers and crochet. The parent involvement in the school is great. All staff members are great. Thanks to all of you at Davis! Great Job! Proud Mother
Davis Bilingual Middle School has been a great experience for me. I am a TA from The University of Arizona. The students, staff, teaching, and overall school has been a great experience. Through my experience it has been a safe learning environment with friendly people and positive environment. I would recommend this school for anyone interseting in enrolling their child in bilingual school.
