Welcome to Davis Magnet School!
Davis Magnet School is composed of over 630 Preschool through sixth-grade students from homes all across the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. Davis Magnet School is a unique learning environment with a special academic focus on Math, Science, and Technology. Teaching the whole child, an emphasis is also placed on responsible behavior, goal setting, high academic performance, ethical behavior, and respect for self and others.
Davis Magnet School remains to be one of the top schools in Newport-Mesa and Orange County as a result of the high-quality instruction that students receive on a daily basis in the classrooms. Teachers collaborate and provide multiple opportunities for students to apply critical thinking skills and solve real-life problems throughout their education. As a result of creative planning and increased resources, students have the opportunity to learn while using the greatest technology and from some of the area’s leading experts. Our classrooms are equipped with 1:1 Chromebooks in grades 2 through 6. We have a designated Robotics Lab and Green Screen Production Room to support additional learning with technology. Students and teachers use our 3-D printer and kiln within the various respected subject areas which add even more hands-on learning opportunities for all students.
The band and choir remain to be one of the best. Davis Magnet School also has an Advanced Band which was created to push students to even greater heights. Our Green Team makes a visible difference on our campus by leading our campus-wide recycling program and expanding on the environmental educational events offered to the entire Newport-Mesa community. Not only do our students excel academically, but they show true character and a giving spirit by participating in a variety of charity events planned by our PAL student leadership group.
Students, staff, and parents are expected to behave following our five core values. These include 1) Do your very best 2) Do what is right 3) Treat others the way you want to be treated 4) Take responsibility for everything you do and 5) Take responsibility for everything you say. Students learn and apply proper study skills. All students are expected to read and study their math facts on a daily basis at home. Parents are encouraged to be active participants in their child’s educational experiences.
Davis Magnet School offers a well-balanced, hands-on educational experience for all students. The combination of high academic standards, critical thinking skills, and hands-on learning opportunities creates an environment where students gain a deep, conceptual understanding of the academic content.
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. 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. Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to seeing you around our campus!
