There will be no more competitive sports, so if you are looking for the whole package this is not the school for you. If you are looking for small class size and everybody plays theory, then this is the place for you. We have been here for 7 years and it has been everything we wanted, until now! We have been blessed by such amazing support from coaches, teachers, and staff. However having 4 headmasters in 4 years has been problematic and the school is suffering from lack of leadership. If you like an elitist who runs the school and is wealthy this is a perfect fit for you. Basically, money talks...The headmaster and his wife are a team even though his wife doesn't work there she certainly scolded the room and spoke down to the parents for questioning their intentions. Very angry and disrespectful. Kids are leaving midway through the year at the present moment due to the hostile environment they have created.

Up and coming school with passionate teachers that will go above and beyond to ensure the success in their students. The school is relatively new and lacks some of the resources more established schools may have. However, their ability to get students into more challenging colleges and universities every year seems to imply that the school is enjoying an upward trend in college readiness and academic rigor. This review is based on attendance a couple years ago, so I’m assuming the ratings would be higher if I was a more recent graduate.
As a parent, faculty member and academic counselor, I highly recommend Davidson Day to anyone interested in a well rounded college preparatory experience for their child. My own kids are both multi-sport travel athletes (one nationally ranked) being educated by incredible people who are preparing them for challenges in college and life. We have a headmaster with the courage to apply fairness and place academics at the forefront of our priorities. I encourage anyone considering our school to visit. Learn the facts, meet my amazing hard-working colleagues, and your family will see why we have a waiting list. Davidson Day is a very special place.
