Davidson Elementary Ratings & Reviews

February 26, 2020 Submitted by a parent
So far, it has been an OK day to day experience and a disappointing experience for interacting with the school representatives for a special needs kid. I have had my kids at a variety of elementary schools in another state, 4 private, 1 charter and 2 public. One school was a Title 1, school, too. So far, this one appears to be the most inflexible and impersonal. There’s some good things but definitely room for improvement. They do not seem to do as well with more challenging populations. Their test scores for non-ELP or low income students, for example, are abysmal. That seems to extend to kids with special needs, based on my experience. Public schools like DK8 should work for all students, arguably, even more for those at a disadvantage.

Excellent experience through the first 2 years. They have a good mix of traditional and progressive approaches to learning.

Davidson Elementary is an awesome school. The principal and his team are always friendly, caring, and quick to respond to the needs of their students. Our organization enjoys partnering with DES and look forward to coming on campus to see what amazing things Principal J's scholars are accomplishing. Great Job DES!

I have had at least one child at DES since 2006. We have had an amazing experience and I cannot express enough gratitude to the caring, capable teachers and involved parents. There will always be people who like to complain, no matter where their child(ren) attend school (and no school is perfect), so please keep this in consideration when reading any overly negative comments. Just about every parent at DES would recommend our school as one of the best for sure.

Davidson is thought to be a forward-thinking and cohesive town and the expectation is a wonderful town elementary school. Any given day, as you enter the school, the parent involvement is impressive (at times overwhelming bordering on irritating) and welcoming but it bolsters this school far too much giving a false-sense of quality and belonging. Contingents of parents exist that are chronically inside the classrooms 'volunteer teaching' every day of the week without degrees only to turn around and discuss other children's issues with other parents. I think having parental involvement is wonderful but this set-up presents privacy issues there should be more appropriate ways to engage parents and it shouldn't replace teaching. Leadership here espouses an 'us against them' mentality pitting teachers/staff against parents in the face of issues that could be resolved with simple and professional communications. Students are treated like prisoners in the cafeteria and lunch is overseen by cafeteria staff untrained in childhood development; children being yelled at (including by the principal) for simply talking in this overcrowded lunch space and not permitted to use the restroom in a timely manner resulting in children who are too old to be having accidents, wetting their pants. Conversation over a meal is a basic human instinct and a wonderful way to build community and friendships; disallowing conversations between classmates and friends is more damaging than DES realizes. Testing here (even in k-2) is the priority, teachers fail to discuss the whole-child, which misses the mark big time and doesn't prepare our children for success outside of school in social situations (and we wonder why the next generation is turning out social failures at a higher rate than boomer generation). Recesses, in some cases, are scheduled at the very end of the day (probably due to overcrowding) and sometimes is revoked if the class is 'unruly' which I find grossly counterproductive for young minds. Each week, I am saddened to learn of another parent who is dissatisfied with the way things are being run here and deciding to explore other options. Davidson deserves a better elementary school and real-deal leadership. Unfortunately, a split from the CMS machine doesn't sound possible so do your homework before enrolling and attempt to really understand what you are committing to.
