    Two of my children attended General Ray Davis Middle and I couldn't have been more pleased with the quality of education and opportunities provided to my children in their years at the school. Both entered high school well-prepared for rigorous coursework and went on to successfully complete numerous AP and other advanced level courses. Their years at Davis were fundamental in supporting the development of strong work habits pride in self and solid core skills and content knowledge. The staff is well-trained and professional; the administrators are strong positive leaders. I could not have paid for a better school and thanks to Davis Middle I didn't have to.

    Gen. Ray Davis Middle School I have loved this school. The staff is involved and caring toward the students. My daughter's transition to this school has been so smooth and happy.

    My Daughter went to General Ray Davis Middle School. We had a wonderful experience there. I truly appreciated the administration and how they really looked after the kids. If you want your kids to have a "Private School" atmosphere in that they keep a close eye on them and do not stand for any misbehavior this is the place for you! They call it "The Academy" for a reason. I had the opportunity to go on a class trip to Savannah with my daughter and it was the most fun ever. I got a chance to see that the teachers really look out for the kids and care for their well-being. The sports programs are great! My Daughter has just gotten a scholarship and I can't help but think that Davis Middle School played a part in her acheiving this goal. I highly recommend this school to anyone who cares for their kids!

    I truly do love my school. The teachers care about what they do they want people to learn and thrive. I love the whole team division thing. I'm not sure about the review on parental involvement but my parents have not felt that was ever a problem. The school administration often requests that parents come in for all sorts of events! There aren't regular parent-teacher conferences because with each teacher having about 100 students it's hard to do. But they will give you one if you request it or if your child needs help. I've been to another private school in the area and I must say this is just as good in most areas. There are problems I will agree with that but it is a public school and I believe all public schools will get some bad kids. But after going to Davis I NEVER want to go back to private school. If you are a parent and want a good school without paying a small fortune in tuition costs this is totally the place for you.

    I wish my son had attended Davis when these great reviews were being given. So far I have found the school lacking in communication and really reluctant for any parental involvement which is a central theme of Rockdale Countys mission. It appears to come from the leadership of the Principal and flows down. I have spoken to other parents who are disappoined with the lack of communication as well. Save up your money for private school.

    Who needs private schools when you can attend GRDMS! Wonderful school dedicated staff and a level of professionalism that is obvious from the moment you walk into the school. It has a plethora of extra-curricular activities top notch academics and a demonstrated reciprocal respect for students and teachers. My daughter told me that her first year at Davis was her "best school year ever!"

    General Ray Davis Middle School is a model school. With a noticeable lack of exclusive private schools in this area we realized that we didn't need one. Davis Middle possesses all of the fine qualities of the top North Atlanta academies -- without the huge tuition bills. The school climate is outstanding; student expectations for success are clear to everyone. The staff is highly qualified and the leadership is amazing. Academics the arts and athletics are present in perfect balance. What a great place to spend the day!

    My daughter is in 7th grade this year- It has been a wonderful experience. The teachers are dedicated and the Principal is wonderful. Plus- the Performing Arts Programs is outstanding! There are many ways for the kids to connect and become a part of the family. The only thing that would make this place better- is to get more parents actively involved and interested in the programs as well.

    Omg this schoolis the best school you can possibly ever go to! i mean the staff are nice the students and learning enviroment! I'm in the 7th grade now and its has been awesome so far! the teachers really take the time to make sure we get educated but they bring it to our levels with things that we are interested today like cellphones and emails and stuff like that and relate it to the subject we are talking about! It's like one big family! I wanna give a shout out to the DMS! Go Eagles!

    This school is nothing out of the ordanary. there are teachers to help but not many voluntary parents. But overall it is a good school

    My daughter attended this school last year in the 6thy grade. I would say they are very organized for the first year. The school ran smoothly. The principal has an open door policy. He does listen to the parents. I was a very active parent. I volunteered all year. I would say that if more parents would volunteer and get involved it would be awesome. There was not enought of parent participation. Parents would sign up for things they could help out in..however when you call them they would opt out. There were some very loyal and dedicated parents. However they were very few. I would say parents get involved and see what a difference it makes!!

    My daughter attended this school last year for her 7th grade year. I have to say that I am pleased so far. This year she will be in the 8th grade and I am hoping for a successful year.
