My daughter is in kindergarten at Davis. While the school has its concerns as all schools do, I am satisfied with her development overall. They are very much about the 'no child left behind' policy. My daughter is more advanced and therefore gets bored in class often as she sits and waits for everyone else to get done but the teacher is great. The setup is great. Small atmosphere feel. Welcoming school. I would highly recommend this school.

This is a fantastic elementary school. There is room for improvement for the outside maintenance of the playground. I would prefer they build on rather than put students in the modular detached from the school. New principal, great teachers, this has phenominal potential!

Davis is a great school. Staff is welcoming and engaging. It's a safe learning environment. As a military family, we've felt welcomed and the parents are encouraged to visit, eat lunch or attend pto meetings. bullying is addressed in a timely manner and a solution is reached quickly. my children have enjoyed the last 3 years here. all day kindergarten, with p.e., music, and art offered to all grade levels. teachers are highly trained, many with masters degrees. lots of extra curricular activities.
