I have attended John S. Davidson Fine Arts School since sixth grade and now I am graduating as a senior in 2019! My primary fine art has always been vocal music and I have been on many trips over the years. I love every teacher in this school and I plan to keep in touch with them while I'm in college. I love Davidson because they offer many clubs, societies, AP classes, and even a few after school sports activities. Davidson Fine Arts will always be an influential memory in my heart!

Davidson is a pretty good school, the fine arts are fun, but there is a TON of homework. Totally worth it, but it's still kind of bad. The lockers get jammed a lot, the food is kind of bad, but the fine arts are fun! They don't have any cooking clubs or anything like that, but there are lots of cool classes. Lots of work though. Lots.
Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School is a wonderful environment for students to foster their creativity and love of learning. The teachers are wonderful, and even though the classes are very academically rigorous, the teachers, both in the fine arts and academic departments, are extremely supportive and do so much to help students thrive. There are many opportunities for students to be themselves and enjoy their school experience while doing so, through school spirit events, community service, societies that honor individuality and academic achievement, and a host of performances and showcases of the utmost quality year-round. For me, the best part of being a student at Davidson is the environment of the school and the students, faculty, and staff that encompass it. Everyone at Davidson Fine Arts is accommodating, encouraging, driven, and hard-working. In my experience, I love Davidson Fine Arts Magnet, and I can't imagine being anywhere else.
