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 is a place that makes you grow up and become your best self. The school's climate is very family-like, offering an emotional and academic support system throughout all the ranks. The teachers love to watch you grow and mature, and are there to guide you every step of the way. Their high expectations teach you to always rise to the occasion through your determination, level of commitment, and amount of practice. They also teach you to set high expectations for yourself and expect nothing less than the best! I have never been to another school who has such a committed and masterful set of teachers all devoted to the same goal. Both faculty and staff take time to form personal relationships with students to ensure individualized success. Attending this school helped me to personally realize the potential I have to excel in both academic and performing art arenas, set realistic goals for my future, and prepare me for life outside of grade school.
I have been attending Davidson Fine Arts since the sixth grade, so I have been with the school through all the grade levels they offer. I can honestly say that no other school in Augusta will better prepare you for the real world. Not only are they strict and punctual with their academics, they also incorporate the fine arts into your daily schedule to allow students to blossom in dance, various art forms, music, drama,and production arts. Now that I am a graduating senior, I can say that I am fully prepared for college, yet I wish i was allowed to have more of a traditional high school experience, I know in the long run I will be better off when entering into the world and workforce.
