Fargo Davies High School offers everything I am interested in...class-wise, sports-wise & extracurricular-wise. The teachers are great, some of them go above and beyond what you would think they would. The administrative staff is very supportive. My only sports experience is football and the coaches are amazing! The Forensics Department is good (Student Congress, Debate and Speech) but they could use a little more funding.

Davies is a very good school that encourages learning as well as athletics. Davies was honored as the best academic high school in North Dakota this year. We also have many EDC and State championships including the girl's cross-country team three-peat this year. They offer very many clubs and extra-curricular activities that push you to get involved. One of these activities is band. The Davies music program is outstanding. They have been praised not only in the city of Fargo but were recognized by a Jazz institute that visits three high schools nationwide each year. The Thelonious Monk Institute came to Davies, performed, and held a clinic with the music students. The teachers are very kind and will not hesitate to put in extra time to help anyone.
I was a student at Fargo Davies Highschool for all four years. I enjoyed my time there and was active in many clubs and sports. The clubs were fun, but some were very disorganized - depending on the seriousness of the clubs. The sports were fun to participate in but very serious. The overall facilities were in great condition as the school was recently built. There was a major lack of diversity, as you'd probably have one or two students out of twenty-five to thirty be a different ethnicity than white. The academics were pretty good, with a wide variety of options for classes and difficulty of classes.
