All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have a daughter that has gone through Davison schools, for her whole school career. I also teach in another district. My daughter has gotten a well-rounded education; and has been exposed to so many more opportunities; because of this wonderful district. I have nothing but praise for the Davison schools. Each building that my daughter has gone through, was a caring, warm environment; that nurtured not only a complete education; but also nurtures caring, and hard-working young people. Very often, I go back to my own school district, with examples of the wonderful things that Davison is doing (hoping that it might carry over into the district I work in). I've bragged about Davison so much at work, that one of our younger (very good) teachers wants to move to Davison with her new family, and be a teacher in this wonderful district.

I think this school is pretty good. Some of the teachers try to get to involved with the students. Just my opinion! My favorite teacher was Mrs.Gell. She was also my cheerleading coach back in 8th grade! i loved her. anyways, this is a pretty good school

I've been in Davison all my life and i will be graduating next year in the class of 2009. The teachers really care about how the students do and will explain thing a million times. The connect every subject to real life, like for math we went on a hike to find geometric shapes. It really helped us understand the concept better. I would highly recomend this school. Also the band and orchestra program is outstanding. They travel around the country preforming and competing.

I have gone to Davison Schools my whole life and I really enjoyed all of the schools. In high school, I met quite a few teachers that I still continually talk to who made such a positive impact in my life. There are so many different sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities that meet everyone's interests. I believe the Davison district is one of the best around - from academics to athletics. I hope that when I get my teaching degree, I will be lucky enough to teach at one of Davison's elementary schools!

I am a Davison grad (went k-12) and I never played sports! Davison is not all about sports. It is a great school, with terrific teachers. It has excellent extracurricular activities that are not athletic, also. I was a member of the National Honor Society (Davison has a great chapter, unlike some other area schools). There are also great music and art programs. Davison is the best! I am now graduation with a degree in Elementary Education and Davison is where I want to teach!

I left Davison High School for 3 years when I moved to Grand Blanc. I've since moved back and will be graduating next year. This is very sports oriented but it also has a great academic program. I personally love the school. I'm sad to say some of the best teachers are going to be retiring soon but the younger ones filling their places are keeping up in excellence. I highly recommend this school.

Davison schools are in general good schools. However, they focus more on sports than anything else. At this moment they are building a new football field, while the teachers are scraping by when it comes to supplies. Too much money is wasted on sports, instead of being used to help improve the students' learning. If your child is highly active IN sports and/or school-related clubs, then this school is a good one to go to. But if your child just wants, and needs, a valuable education, then you may want to look aroudn a little more.

I believe that this school is well maintained, yet the alternative program has a more well trained, and a better role model for a principal. Mr.Whitman has been the best principal davison has ever had, and I hope he continues running the alternative program to keep kids out of trouble and off the streets and back into school where they belong. Telling you this may seem odd but in the alternative education building I've learned more in the past quarter than I have ever had in a year by a teacher in the normal high school building. Teachers teach one on one, they teach more in a fun state than in a boring quiet class. That is why I am proud to be a student at this wonderful school, and I plan on learning more and to continue my studies until my graduation. Go class of 2006.

Davison Community Schools is a real great district I have a son in the school that loves it. He and I both agree that the teachers there are great and funny so it's not always boring in the classroom. There are two teachers that my son really liked at that school -- Mrs.Gell and Mr.Esper-- they are real funny teachers. Davison also has a good sports program. My son played on the football team and he loved it.

Whoever says Davison is all about sports, is crazy. Allthough they have the Mid-Michigans top overall sports rated teams in All Sports, it's the Academics that tell the real story. Consistantly in the very top of the 21 Districts in Genesee County, Mi., Davison not only scores very well in all MEAP tests, they do it with far fewer actual dollars spent per pupil. In other words, living here is not a rip off, when you see the results from our Graduates. Standard & Poors' study of all 520 School Districts in the entire State of Mi. found that Davison Schools ranked in the top 50 districts in money well spent, for the results they accomplished. That is the true measure of a community. Well, that, and more police per sq. mile than I've ever seen in my life. You will not move, once you experience this gem of a town. Believe me.

I have one child graduated from Davison and one that will be graduating in 2004. There is always something going on at the school or related to the school to keep the kids busy and learning. They have a wonderful Orchestra dept. and are very sports oriented. I highly reccommend Davison Schools from Thompson Teddies (kindergarten) to graduation.

As a former student I konw the ins & outs of DHS. The principal & staff is great 99% of the time, but hey we all have our days right?, no one's perfect. The sports teams & clubs are plentiful there's something for everyone but the school as a whole still keeps it's focus on academics. If you're thinking about moving to the district, Just Do It! :)
