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. We serve students from all across the district. We focus on providing our students with hands-on learning opportunities with a special emphasis on 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 for the 2022-2023 school year will begin on February 9th at 3:00 pm to March 15th at 11:59 pm.  The link will be posted at the bottom of this "Applying to Davis" page by the District.   The application must be submitted prior to the deadline, there are NO exceptions.
  • The lottery is typically scheduled later in March for the following school year.  Parents receive an email in April notifying them if their child was accepted to Davis or the waitlist number their child received.
  • Current Davis siblings have priority in the lottery but must apply during the application window.
  • Current Davis Preschool students must apply. There is no guarantee or priority given to current Davis Preschool students.

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

Any attendance or lottery 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.
