The teachers are overall very good and communicative. My child had one teacher who did not communicate effectively, but she was an exception. Excellent library and good literacy programs. Good diversity in the classrooms and emphasis on learning about other cultures. Overall recommended.
Davis Elementary is a school that strives for academic excellence. With a low turnover rate for teachers there is great continuity from year to year. Many extracurricular activities are available, for all ages of kids. Parental involvement might be the most outstanding aspect of this school. While there is always room for improvement, our family feels like Davis is a wonderful, nurturing learning environment for our children.
Davis Elementary is a school which strives for success on all fronts. Opportunities for extracurricular activities abound, for all grade levels as well. Parental involvement is incredible, probably one of the most appealing aspects of the school. While always room for improvement, we feel that Davis Elementary is the best learning environment for our children.
Will Davis Elementary School is a great school with huge parent participation. Activities are well organized, educational and fun. My experience with the teachers up to this point have been great. I have two more children to go to Davis and couldn't be more confident of their care.
Davis is a high-quality elementary school. One of the best features of this school is its extremely active and supportive parental community and PTA. It is wonderful to have so many families who value education attending the same school as your child. The staff and especially the administration are all clearly committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students. The teachers go the extra mile to meet the needs of each child. It is a wonderful atmosphere.
Davis is an excellent school. Classes are small and staff are very motivated to work well with the students. I thought that the Kindergarten program was extremely welcoming and created and great induction year for my child. I thoroughly recommend the school.
What a great neighborhood school! Lots of parent involvement an very caring teachers.
My daughter has attended Davis since Kindergarten. She loved her K and 1st teachers and is quite happy with her 3rd as well. Her 2nd grade teacher seemed a bit narrow-minded and critical, and I believe my daughter's energy and enthusiasm suffered for it. This year her grades are back up to their previous levels. Despite this setback--which I don't actually view as terribly serious since even the best students encounter a teacher or two they just can't learn from--Davis is an outstanding school. You won't find a greater since of community. I like the diversity that exists at Davis. There is a good mix of ethnicities and socio-economic levels. My daughter and I are both sorry we must move.
Davis Elementary has been a wonderful experience for our family. My son is in 5th grade now and loves to go to school each day. The staff and faculty are all great. Each year Kyle has been assigned to a classroom that fits his needs. The principal has been there since the school opened 10 or so years ago. He sincerely loves his school and the kids in it. The school provides several after school programs such as Math Pentatholon, Chess, Foreign languages, Future Scientist, Volleyball, Jumproap teams, Mad Science to name a few. We will sincerely miss all the people who make Davis such a great school.
Three of my children have gone to Davis and I have never stepped foot into a more exciting elementary school in all of Austin. Dr. Hall is the visionary behind it all, but his carefully selected staff is what drives the place. There is no finer school and Mr. Will Davis will tell you that himself. The school has good karma, that's all I can say.
Davis is a great school and has excellent teachers and staff. I have a daughter at Davis for the last three years, and she loves her classes, teachers, and friends.
I am so glad that my child had the opportunity to attend Davis Elementary. The parents and teachers work together to make this school exceptional! Parental involvement is incredible!
I have two kids at Davis. They've attended only this elementary. I believe that they want to prepare kids for success. There is tremendous parental involvement and the kids seem proud of their school. My kids love it. I will judge their middle and high schools by their experiences at Davis. It is truly an outstanding school.
Davis is great, from the principal to the custodial staff, everybody provides a great atmosphere for children's educational & social development.
I have two sons at Davis currently age 6 and age 9. I am very pleased with everything at Davis. Davis offers everything that any private school can offer my children. The principal and the teachers do an excellent job with the students at Davis.
