Welcome to Davis Magnet School!


Davis Magnet School is a public school within the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. We have over 600 students, who travel to our school from Newport Beach and Costa Mesa.  The school functions as a Professional Learning Community, where teachers collaborate and provide high-quality instruction for all of our learners. 


The 2016-17 school year marks our eighth year as a math, science, and technology magnet school. This school year is continuing to build off of one of the most successful years in our school’s history. This is due to the excellent instruction within the classrooms, strong community support, and hard work by the students.  Problem solving and critical thinking skills are consistently emphasized in each classroom across our campus. Students are provided multiple opportunities to participate in engaging, hands-on lessons developed by our collaborative and hard-working teaching staff.  The instructional rigor that is offered within the Davis Magnet School classrooms continues to be among the best in Newport-Mesa Unified School District, Orange County, and beyond.


A few of our recent accomplishments include:

  • California Gold Ribbon School, 2016
  • California Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) Coalition Silver Medal Winner, 2016
  • NMUSD Vex Robotics Champions, 2016
  • Orange County Science and Engineering Fair Ribbon Winner, 2016
  • Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E. Street Hockey Champions, 2016, 2014
  • Pilot Cup Soccer Tournament Boys 5th/6th Gold Champions, 2016, 2015

Students have many opportunities to shine in music and the arts as well. Our band and choir perform all over the county and always have a strong representation wherever they travel. Art classes and drama productions are also a part of our school culture. The student council and ASB lead several community service projects around Orange County. The student Green Team continues to make a positive impact on our school by leading the campus wide recycling efforts and offering environmental educational events for the Newport-Mesa community.  Davis Magnet School has something special to offer every learner.


Davis Magnet School is a Professional Learning Community that values the input, dedication, and collaboration of teachers, parents, administration, students, and community members. Our mission is learning. Our vision is to be recognized as one of the finest elementary schools in the United States of America. Our goal is for 100% of our students to demonstrate proficiency or above in everything that we teach. We work hard as a team on a consistent basis to accomplish our goal.


We appreciate the generous support of our Davis Magnet School PTA and Davis Magnet School Education Foundation. As a result of the extra effort of our PTA, families are able to participate in a wide variety of school community family events. Foundation and PTA fundraisers help to provide additional learning programs and educational supplies for our students and teachers.


Communication and teamwork are very important to us at Davis Magnet School. If you have a question or concern, please don’t hesitate to call the office at 714-424-7930 or email me at I’m happy to talk or schedule a meeting. Student safety and student learning are our top two priorities. I am here to support the teachers and work with the parents to ensure that these two priorities remain consistent.

Go Ducks!
