Update for Students, Parents and Staff of Davis Middle School
Davis Middle School (all grades 5-8) will implement its Distance Learning Program starting tomorrow, October 15 through October 28. Students will not attend school in person during this time period, the teachers will implement the Distance Learning Program where students will attend school virtually at home.
The school is taking this action in response to positive test results from several individuals who are “school related.” It has been determined that implementing a pause of in-person learning at school is a prudent course of action to reduce the risk to others.

The middle school earned that recognition based on performance on the state's academic assessments. Davis Middle school was the top performing school in a cohort of 30 middle schools. The state compares school performance in several ways some by growth and some by achievement. In this study, called "Beating the Odds -- Study II", Davis Middle School was part of a group of 30 middle schools that are most alike. The academic measures of each school were then compared to others in that group. DAVIS MIDDLE SCHOOL IS THE #1 RANKED SCHOOL IN THEIR PEER GROUP.
