Applying to Davis

Are you interested in becoming a part of the Davis Magnet School Family?

Davis Magnet School is a math, science, and technology magnet school located in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. We are not your typical neighborhood school, but serve students from all across the district. We focus on providing our students hands-on learning opportunities with a special emphasis in math, science, and technology while teaching all of the California content standards.

Below are some helpful details as to how students are admitted to Davis.

  • Davis enrollment is awarded through a computerized lottery process administered by the District office. 
  • The application window to apply is at the beginning of February . The link will be posted at the bottom of this "Applying to Davis" page  by the District and will be available for approximately two weeks.   The application must be submitted prior to the deadline, there are NO exceptions.
  • The lottery is typically scheduled in March for the following school year.  Parents receive an email in April notifying them if their child was accepted to Davis or the wait list number their child received.
  • Current Davis siblings have priority in the lottery but must apply during the application window.


Please note: School tours are on hold until further notice. 

Any attendance, lottery, or tour questions may be answered by our front office staff at 714-424-7930. We thank you for your interest in Davis Magnet School and look forward to meeting you.
