Open Quote Both of my children have had great experiences at the Davis through academics and extracurricular activities over the past 10 years. The teachers take much pride in their teaching and their students. The principal is wonderful, she has her finger on the pulse of the school and her decisions have always been in the best interest of the students and staff.

I have been involved with the PTA for 10 years and I am sad to say that this is my last year as my daughter will be moving on to high school. This group of dedicated women and men are an inspiration to all and I am happy to have been a part of something bigger than I could have imagined.

All of these things and more are why The Davis K-8 is a treasure of Brockton's south side. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
