As a parent I was totally impressed with my daughters 6th grade experience. She had a great lang arts teacher. During 7th grade she developed into a very confident math student. During 8th grade she developed a love of math and history. I wish I could say the same for science and lang arts.
Davidsen Middle school is the best school ever! You have respect from all the teachers and you get alot of good friends!
i went to davidson last year and two years before that. Davidsen is a great school with great tachers, but while i was at school there were ALOT of fights.
Davidsen middle school is a great school. It's very clean, and the teachers teach alot! I love being in this school! Alot of fun. My teachers are really nice to me, and they do fun activities with the classroom. We all have our opinions but parents, middle school is a big change for 6th graders. We're so used to elementary schhol that we've grown to it. It's a bit harder in middle school with all the new changes. But it's going to be great.
I have a 6th grader attending Davidsen Middle and he is quickly falling behind the district average in every subject. He was an average student at Westchase Ele. and now needs extensive tutoring-which can cost a fortune. The teacher quality is below average and I am currently looking into other school options-charter, magnet, even moving out of state. A good education is key for a successful future. Davidsen Middle is robbing my son of a successful future.
This school is terrible and unorganized. My daughter has been harrassed repeatedly. She tried to fix a relationship with a friend, it lasted for a few months then the troubles started again so she asked the guidance counselor if she could have another peer mediation but they said that she wasted too much time the last time. Also I have sent a healthy kids program form many times and they lost it several times. The school also ignores the drescode when it comes to skirts. You see many girls with their shirts longer than their skirts. Also the school is not specific with date of certain events until last minute. When I took a visit to this school I was shocked. All I want is for the school to buckledown
I am a student at Davidsen and have had two great years there I am now going into the 8th grade and can't wait till it starts. I have had some of my favorite teachers at this school, and I think that the teachers are very helpful and understanding. When I came to the school I had a C average and now I have a A average and I'm in National Junior Honor Society.
My son will be entering the 8th grade in 2007/08, overall I have been very impressed with Davidsen. Teacher commitment/quality remains high, discipline is well enforced and uniforms remain mandatory. The school systems policy of placing kids into groups based on their individual academic achievement is wonderful. Those kids truly interested in learning and achievement are rewarded by placement into honors programs and not forced to have their classroom learning opportunities compromised by kids with disciplinary/behavioral issues. The school band is outstanding as are intramural sports . That this middle school manages to maintain a disciplined and achievement oriented focus, in an era where our young people have so many distractions, is a major achievement of it's faculty , administration and PTA.
I just started working at this school last year and have been very impressed with the commitment from the faculty. Students with academic problems are given major attention and support. I did note that there is an overall low tolerance for students with behavioral problems, especially when the parent(s) enable and/or make excuses. I believe this to be a good thing, as it keeps order and control for the ones who are taking it seriously and getting the right kind of support from their parents.
If your child is a challenge in any way (behaviorally or acedemically) the teachers and/or administrative staff does not want to be bothered. It's like pulling teeth to get any help from anyone.
Davidsen Middle School is a very good school, especially the music groups. The music teachers are wonderful at what they do; the groups always recieve a 'straight superior' rating at the annual evaluation festivals. I attended this school last year and am now in the ninth grade, and I miss it very much! Go dragons!
I think davidsen is a realy wonderfull school they have realy nice students.The have challanges for the students to make us smart. And Im happy to be at the school ever since I steped in the school every body gave me a warm welcome.So if I were you I would put my child into davidsen..They love it.Alot.
I have once attended this school, and I can tell you it is one of the greatest places to be. The teachers treated me as if I were family. I recieved a great education, which has prepared me for high school which I am graduating a a Salutorian and recieving a full ride scholarship to the United States Air Force Academy.
This school is sadly lacking in leadership. So many students have failed and it is a definate result of the lack of teaching ability and lack of administrative support.
This is an outstanding school! There is great communication between the administrators, teachers, parents, and community. My child spent 3 years here and learned not only academics, but also a lot about community learning and giving.
