My son is currently in first grade at Davis. My husband and I could not ask for a better school for our son. The teachers are responsive to our concerns and address issues effectively. The principal is very active and approachable. The PTA is very strong. Our son has flourished so much already. We are looking forward to the next 4 year!.

I am the father of four boys at Davis. My oldest son is moving to Middle School this year (2008) and the others are in 4th, 2nd and K. Overall, our experience continues to be very positive. We have made many great friends. There is a strong parental involvement in our school and the staff is top notch. Our disappointments in 6 years in the school can be counted in one finger.

I have a daughter in K. She is doing great and her teacher is wonderful! So far we love the school, I am only hoping for more good things in the upper grades.

Trade off of little diversity for high overall schores. clique-ie with lots of stay at home moms who focus on the school. principal is accommodating and accessible. parents are self absorbed in kids, etc

Best elementary school in New Rochelle. The 4th grade reading scores were the highest in 2004 in the entire Westchester County! I would definitely send my child there.

I'm not a parent, but better yet a 13 year old girl who has graduated from Davis. Davis is a great school, with the caring teachers, and friendly students. I've learned lessons there that were not on the curriculum. In fact, I met my best friend there, and to this day, we are still best friends. My father went there, as well as my brother. I love Davis, and I reccomend it to any parent looking for an elementary school. Trust me, Davis is the way to go.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
