We have 1 child in Davis; having moved here at the start of the school year. The school is brand new (Aug 2015), clean and the staff is friendly. Mrs. Emmons is fantastic with the students and handles conflicts immediately. She does not lead the kids to answers( which seems typical nowadays). She asks open ended questions. We aren't from this area and while there is an adjustment whenever moving; we appreciate the responsiveness and willingness of school staff to answer questions. The secretary has always been friendly and happy to answer questions. Our Childs teacher was consistent identifying strengths and meeting 1:1 with student to set goals that encouraged student to work harder. I've been to school/class functions and the kids are always happy and well mannered. The school acknowledges honor roll with a small assembly and the music/holiday performances are really cool with participation by all students. We are Very happy with our and our child's experience at Davis Elememtary!
Our child's teacher Mrs W is incredible!. She brings out the child's strengths and ignores the quirks of kids this age (probably why the kids love her because she reinforces the good). She really is amazing how she has total control of her classroom and makes it look effortless.
Yes. The kids are respectful and use manners. It does not seem as though teachers ignore the undesirable behavior; they actually deal with it in an age appropriate way. I do think that helps set a tone and an example for the students to model
I've seen first hand (while volunteering) other students offering to help others without being prompted. With older elementary age kids, this isn't always the case (in other schools our child has attended).
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.
