Davis School is one of the top ten elementary schools in New York State. In fact, the State University of Albany selected Davis as one of the top ten high performing elementary schools for a study based on our students solid performance on the New York State Assessment tests.
Davis is more than just a set of (excellent) standardized test scores though. Davis School is the home of caring, committed and cultured students, faculty and staff. Thanks to the Magnet Overlay program (a program through which Davis receives additional funds from the District), every child at Davis participates in an arts-in-education consultant program. Professionals in various aspects of the arts dance, puppet theater, book-making and story telling work with the students to teach them their craft. The children then take what they have been taught and experience the art by performing it themselves. Each child at Davis also attends a live theater performance, free of charge. Because Davis believes that the voice of each child at Davis is important, our students each participate in a musical production within the Davis school regardless of ability. Starting in Kindergarten our students are encouraged to let their voices ring out.
