Belief Statement


Belief Statement

Every student, everyday, is entitled to quality teaching instruction.
Differentiated instruction enhances the potential to learn.
An effective school is comprised of students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators working as a team.
Character education is an integral part of the instructional program.
The school's environment should foster mutual respect.


The instructional day begins at 8:10 a.m. and ends at 3:10 p.m. daily. All kindergarten, first, and second classes are self-contained. Grades three through five are departmentalized. The instructional day is divided into subject areas in accordance with state and local guidelines. All instruction is provided by highly qualified personnel. Additionally, over the last five consecutive years, Davis Elementary has made Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) according to the Alabama State Department of Education Accountability Criteria. 


Davis Elementary School was built in 1957 and named after Edward Thomas Davis who was Chairman of the Montgomery County Board of Education from 1935-1947. It is approximately 54 years old. The original two-story brick building had twenty-one regular classrooms. In 1980, a new wing was added. During the 2004-2005 school-term, a new media resource center/library was added, along with two classrooms, two restrooms, and a finance office. In the summer of 2005, the playground was rebuilt, and new equipment with a blacktop was added. Additionally, in the summer of 2011, a parking lot was added to accommodate the increase of personnel for the 2011-2012 school year.


E. T. Davis School has a homogeneous student population. The racial make-up of the students is consistently 99.5 percent African-American. Davis projected enrollment for the 2015-2016 school year is 641 students in kindergarten through fifth grade and 18 students in Pre-K program funded through Family Guidance. Davis has consistently maintained an attendance rate of 96 percent. Statistics indicate that some of Davis students are "at-risk". The socioeconomic level of the students is best indicated by the fact that 96 percent of the students qualify for free or reduced lunches, which makes the school eligible to receive Title One funding.


Students have access to a full-time school counselor. All students receive guidance and counseling services from the counselor through a structured, weekly classroom schedule. Individual counseling and group counseling services are available by referral.


The school is located on a four-acre site in a residential area in south Montgomery. It is a neighborhood school. Most students live within walking distance of the school. Davis has an active safety committee who regularly monitors the school.
