Three of my children have attended this school. Both of my sons were introduced to drugs and adolescent cohabitation. We choose Dublin schools because of it high test scores but the challenges we encounter was unexpected. We haven't exper Teacher who go above and beyond to reach out to struggling students, your child will get left behind if you're not diligent as a parent. Davis offers many academic opportunities for its students. They have a tremendous music program. And I love the cultural diversity this school offers. You will not find this kind of diversity in any surrounding school districts. However I quickly learned about "the Dublin Herd". So my recommendation as a parent is to stay vigilant, don't depend on this school to give your child an excellent academic, social, cultural experience; its up to you as parents to get involved and stay involved.

I'll have to agree with what another parent said -- the communication from administration is sub-par. As a teacher myself, I know how important communication with parents can be. My son's counselor has left 2-3 calls unanswered (granted, she did call back one time, but only after we went to the school in-person and left a note with the office assistant, Jan, who by the way is great!). The counselor told us there would be an English and a Math placement test. The math placement test didn't happen, so we're worried he might be in the wrong level. The counselor told us that my son would have ESL support from day 1, and as a new student, would have a buddy assigned to him to help him out. That didn't happen the first day, so we called and went to the school to try and figure out what was going on. She returned the call the next day and assured us that on day 2 the buddy would meet him in homeroom and check in with him, etc. We believed her again. And again, it didn't happen. At this point I feel powerless and just want to give up on her. My son has begun to adjust to the new country and new school by himself, thankfully. But so far, I'm disappointed with the staff.

I agree, teachers do offer your child every chance to succeed. Unfortunately, while they teach against bullying, they do the minimum to address or correct the situation. There is also a problem with theft. We found a great disparity in athletic team support as well as coaching commitment. What's more, there appears to be a tug-of-war between athletics and the music department as it pertains to student participation.

This school has great teacher communication, great IEP involvement, teaches against bullies, and the teachers do everything they can to see your child suceed. I have never been or felt more at ease than when my child started going to this school. It is also clean and well kept.

I LOVE this school. Its like a whole Irish community. I love love love love love it. Mr. Nosker is an outstanding principal, when my older sister went here and our house burned down, he created a school-wide food drive for our family because the fire left us with nothing. I'd recommend this school to anyone, there is great personal attention to anyone who needs it, and the music programs are AMAZING.

Communication from anyone in administration is almost non-existent in this district. If you are from a district in which you receive constant communication from the principal, superintendent or others then you will be very disappointed with the level of communication in Dublin. Even calls and emails go unanswered. The curriculum is supposed to follow state standards, but I have found that it can vary widely within a grade level depending on the teacher. The educational value is solid but not outstanding. There are plenty of extra activities for students.

I am not impressed with this school. Its easy to teach kids who are 'A' students. I dont see a robust enough program to help students who are struggling to achieve.

This school has strong teachers, though many are getting burned out. The discipline is very weak due to weak principals. There are times when the safety of the students is compromised by inaction from the principal.

I recently graduated from Davis amd my expericece there was AMAZING. The princple Dave Nosker was the best by far. The learning system there is tuff but the teachers make so easy. Now the food here is not all that great but I adjusted with it. So basically I can say that I am very proud to have went to Davis Middle School!

This school is one of the most proficent and respectable schools throughout the district and state. Davis has a community with outstanding parents and students. The principal and asst. principal are some of the most involved principals, they are the best! i have ever seen. The School Resource Officer is also a wonderful man. The idea of Character Counts is inforced in this building to a extent that i have never seen. The teachers and staff are always there for the students in out and of the school. The extracurricular activities are amazing! Once again the staff and teachers, no words in the english dictionary can describe how caring they are. When you look at Davis you see more of a family with a learning enviroment not just a 'school' I will miss this school so much!

I am a parent of a Davis Middle Schooler. My daughter is in the 8th grade and has been in the Dublin School District since 2nd grade. The academic program is excellent; I know of no better education than the Dublin SD. My daughter has excelled to her potential each year. I feel she is challenged and the teachers are incredible. Parents can get involved as they want to -- the teachers welcome that.

I recently visited Davis and I would just like to say how horrid my experience was. The food was disgusting, the people were not friendly, and the classes were not challenging. What has the Ohio Board of Education come up with these days? I thought that our children were supposed to get quality education's, not free periods every day.

I have worked for columbus public schools, as well as several dublin schools, and davis is by far the best school I have ever been at. The teachers really care about the students and do a wonderful job teaching their subjects. The special ed department is wonderful. Everyone supports everyone. A great place to work or send your child!
