School Reviews

5  
My children attended Davis from 2013 to 2019. They received excellent academic care and genuine loving care from all of their teachers. My oldest child excels in sports, so his favorite subject was PE. My two youngest children both love to read and they loved visiting the library. One of my daughters wants to eventually become a library media specialist because she says that's where she always felt the most accepted in every school she has attended. She is now in High School. Our youngest child has special needs, and we always felt her teachers genuinely loved & nurtured her! Davis was the perfect fit for our family! I love the Cobb County School that we have been blessed to attend!
