3rd - 5th Grade

students have the opportunity to feel amazed every single day

Teachers nurture critical thinking, while providing opportunity and encouragement for students to share their learning in innovative ways to diverse and global audiences.  When science, technology, language arts, and math live side-by-side with the arts, world languages and athletics, students' interests and passions are ignited and fostered. The integration of the Davis values– community, respect, spirit, wisdom and righteousness –enables students to find added personal meaning in those connections.

Fourth grade students Zoomed in with other fourth grade students in Noida, India

Fourth grade students Zoomed in with other fourth grade students in Noida, India, and their school librarian to discuss the use of artificial intelligence. They played trivia to learn about each other’s school environments and cultures. If students could not uncover the answer, they used AI tools to see if they could discover the correct answer. It worked some of the time but not every time. It was a great learning experience on both sides of the world!
