Although I didn't have many notable social experiences at Davies and didn't participate in sports or clubs, I'm satisfied with the experience I've had at the school. Food is bad but what school has good food anyway? I manage to eat it every afternoon anyway. As for diversity, I hear complaints that it's white and bougie and I'd say I'm in agreement, it's in a newer part of town so naturally, it's kinda bougie but you do see students from a variety of backgrounds although even racial groups are cliquey. People often seem to be grouped up by race, although certain groups tend to have more diversity than others. The music program is great though, we frequently win competitions at the state level and end up sweeping awards there. I've had good teachers and I've had bad teachers but overall I'd say my experience at Davies was satisfactory.
I love the school! Most of the teachers are really great and flexible. They give out as much as you put in. Usually very flexible and forgiving if you work with them. I do wish that there was more of a variety of clubs other than student leadership, math, debate, and foreign language. Promoting school spirit is always present.
