Middle School

6th - 8th Grade

students emerge as independent thinkers, skilled problem solvers and passionate leaders.

Housed in a state of the art building on a campus designed specifically with the middle school learner in mind, students experience  accelerated coursework in the various disciplines challenging them to reach their full potential. Students enjoy the opportunity to pursue their passions through a rich offering of elective courses, world languages, technology, the arts, and Jewish Studies alongside their core academic classes. With in-depth discussions and hands-on experiences through interactive, project based learning and core curriculum, students are given the opportunity to embrace and master both independence and collaboration while developing their critical thinking, communication and leadership skills.

When Davis students graduate from their middle school experience, they take with them a strong academic foundation, confidence in their skills and themselves, the values to make ethical decisions and an eagerness to think independently and creatively in every facet of their lives.

8th Grade's  Demos Art Project

8th grade students brought math and art together through the Demos Art Project. It required them to take all that they have learned about parent functions, transformations, inequalities, domain, and range and use their creativity to "draw" on the coordinate plane. Students had complete engagement and ownership of the project as they were given choices in how to demonstrate mastery of their learning.
