Davis High

Summary:

Davis High is a public high school located in Kaysville, Utah, serving grades 10-12 with a total enrollment of 2,175 students. The school is part of the Davis School District, which is ranked 34 out of 100 districts in Utah and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Davis High consistently ranks among the top high schools in Utah, ranking 11th out of 139 schools in the 2022-2023 school year and receiving a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school's 10th-grade proficiency rates in English Language Arts (55.8%), Mathematics (58.9%), and Science (43.7%) are significantly higher than the state and district averages. Additionally, Davis High's performance on the Utah Aspire Plus assessments is particularly impressive, with students outperforming their peers in the Davis School District and the state of Utah across all subject areas. However, the school has a predominantly white student population, with 90.3% of students identifying as white, which is lower in racial diversity compared to nearby schools like Northridge High (70.27% white) and Layton High (80.64% white).

Another notable aspect of Davis High is its relatively low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, with only 7.59% of students in this category during the 2022-2023 school year. This is significantly lower than the nearby schools, such as Mountain High (34%) and Northridge High (23.18%), which serve a higher proportion of economically disadvantaged students. This socioeconomic disparity within the Davis School District is an area that warrants further investigation and potential intervention to ensure equitable access to educational resources and opportunities for all students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

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.
