    "I have a son in the 8th grade. The work he brings home is a joke and highly insulting. No wonder he is bored. How about something more challenging? I have tried to contact a teacher about keeping up with my son and of course, I've had no response. Nice communication skills you have there. My son has had his clothes stolen on a few occasions and some thrown in the dumpster yet I'm told that wouldn't happen here." There are so many kids that there aren't even enough lockers yet they want to send home a reminder on how to load your backpack. Don't let the no bullying policy fool you either. I'm finding another alternative so my son will actually get the education he needs. What a joke!"

    "Excellent teachers. New great leadership with Mr. Marcucci. Amazing music program with a marching band; the only one in Marin! Davidson is a school outside the bubble, diverse as the real world is, with excellent educators and great kids attending. In our 3rd year at Davidson, we couldn't have chosen a better school for our family! Our kids are both honor roll students and they love to go to school every day. They also have great friends! Thank you Davidson Community!"

    "James B. Davidson Middle School fosters growth of young minds mentally, emotionally, and physically. My daughter loves her school and looks forward to going every day like it is a treat to get to go to school. I believe this is a reflection of the environment, staff and curriculum, so I am surprised by some of the reviews below. The teachers I have dealt with have been very responsive, concerned and have taken action when needed. In any case, it s important to have a voice as a parent and to be involved."

    "This is a terrific school! Teachers and staff have the best interests of the children at heart and provide a safe and nurturing yet challenging environment in which to learn and grow in every way."

    "Terribly disappointed in DMS. Kids have no consequences for bad behavior, most teachers are unresponsive and appear to be uninterested, and the principal seems to be more interested in marketing than educating. The only good thing I can say about the school is that they do have an excellent music program."
