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.

Fabulous school! Grades 6-12. Magnet public school. Students audition for a spot. 70% female/30%male. 45% black, 45% white, 10% other. Academically challenging, all high school students take AP courses. Dedicated Teachers and administrators are supportive and there is a real "Davidson family" vibe at this school. All students participate in fine arts- Dance, Theater, Music, Visual Arts, Film, Tech, and/or Writing. Lots of clubs and after school activities, rehearsals and performances. They have sports- swimming, diving, rowing, golf and tennis. Lots of parent involvement. Davidson is a great school!
Davidson Fine Arts is a school for people who mainly prioritize academics. There are meager sports there, but they’re working on making the selection better. The atmosphere can sometimes be intimidating due to the older children and the impatience of many. I attended Davidson from 6th grade to 12th and my opinion has changed significantly through the years. Sometimes teachers will not teach or prepare you for the real world, and you must learn on your own. Some teachers do care, and the students do not. Davidson is a high stress environment but also a nice place to express your artistic talent.
