School Purpose

The purpose of Davis High School is to promote the mission of “Learning First” for all.  To accomplish this, we support a quality learning environment by establishing expectations and providing programs that challenge our students through rigorous courses such as Advanced Placement, Concurrent Enrollment, Early College, and Honors.  We support and encourage our students to access a rigorous curriculum while also providing robust instruction and appropriate learning benchmarks for all levels and for all students.  Our students have access to a variety of high quality and competitive co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Our goal is to provide our students with the skills they need to successfully transition to any post-high school opportunity.
