    "Our son has attended this school since Kindergarten. He loves it and so do we! The staff are always as nice as can be and interact really well with the children. My son has ADHD and struggled big time the first year, but his teacher was just the sweetest person and did EVERYTHING she could to help him and us deal with the issues he faced before being diagnosed. Things have gotten easier for him since being diagnosed in 1st grade, but he still struggles from time to time and all of his teachers have been so understanding and really work to adjust their expectations to fit his needs, which as a parent, is appreciated more than I could ever really express with words. Every year at the start of the new school year they send home a form for us to fill out, asking for info about what motivates our kid, best practices when it comes to disciplinary actions and rewards, all specific to each child. His new teachers also have a meeting with all of his previous teachers to get their advice/experiences. The Vice Principal even went as far as making sure my son is tested first thing in the mornings on all his tests, because she noticed that's when he's the most focused! I mean WOW! Just love it!"

    "My child transferred to Davis from another school out of state when we moved here a couple years ago. The old school was so horrible my child was traumatized from the experience. The educational staff and the principal at Davis worked tirelessly with us to help turn things around. By the time we started school this year, my child walked into class a completely new person - confident, happy, and eager to learn. I'm also impressed with how engaged the principal is - she hosted a parent seminar this year on child trafficking to raise awareness, an issue I'd never seen any other school where my children went even try to touch, but she took the bull by the horns and did it. At meetings she is often the first to come up with ideas for helping a child. She is VERY strict and all business, but I'd rather have a principal who won't take any guff because she cares than one who acts as if their job is a popularity contest while ignoring serious problems. We dealt with the latter too many times in the past, and it's the students who get hurt the most. For that reason, I'm grateful for the supportive and caring staff at Davis."

    "We have had great experiences every year at Davis. The teachers each year are active and involved with the students and address concerns when raised. The parent involvement is very low and external activities are non existent but I believe that has to do with a less than active PTA than the actual school. The PTA is run by a few people who are not interested in having others assist. The principal seems pretty by the rules type of principal but based on other schools it is appreciated. We have never had an issue with classroom size or kid count and they appear to receive the resources they need to run the school effectively. If you are looking for an active GT school then you will need to push this yourself but they will act on your requests. This does not mean they won't challenge your child."

    "Dale B. Davis is an excellent school. The teachers are dedicated professionals who are personally concerned for their students and want them to succeed. Davis' population encounters many socioeconomic challenges, but its students, on most days, make me hopeful for the future. I am proud to be part of its faculty despite day-to-day challenges."

    "The teachers are good although there does seem to be turnover quite often. Wish we could get more parent involvement."
