Davila is a great school, teachers are always striving to provide the best learning environment to their students. They are very dedicated and caring. Davila is so great that most teachers have their own children attend the school because they know the quality of education the school provides to all children both English and Spanish speaking. It is sad to see comments from some frustrated parents referring to Davila teachers as not having control of the students, as a parent I totally disagree with them.

Davila is a wonderful school. My children enjoy going there. The teachers are the best they are caring, loving and most of all responsible. The principal is always on time and devoted to making Davila the best school yet.

Very unorganized and unstructured. Never follow through thier curriculums. Children seem to have control over the classrooms and not the teachers.

Focus too much on spanish speaking and not enough on english speaking. Need to have more tough teachers.
