Horrible. My daughter was bullied starting at Birch Lane andbthe same girls ganged upbon her at Harper. School officials were notified, spoken to, complaints filed and there was NO action taken. We moved to another city where she excelled in learning and the bullying stopped. Beware parents. Davis schools are “falsely advertised “ as being the best. They are not and you will risk your child’s emotional and physical well-being taht will impact the rest of their lives. I’d suggest homeschooling/charter/any other options but Davis school public school district.
Harper has the nicest and newest campus of the Davis middle schools. It's located next to greenbelts that allow students to ride their bikes easily to and from school.
It was the worst school ever and the teachers gave detention to me for asking to go to the bathroom several times. I did not learn much from this school and was very underprepared for High school.
I attended this school all three years, and found it to be a really great experience. While the math and Spanish programs left something to be desired, the music program was excellent, and all the core classes were taught very well. However, there tend to be a lot of new teachers that are rotated each year, so the quality of education can depend on that. A lot of the classes could be stress inducing, and some teachers had that pressure cooker mentality, though I would say the parents and the students themselves were mostly at fault. I personally didn't get too stressed out. Probably the best thing about this school is the high level of tolerance and diversity, which you wouldn't expect with such a high percentage of white people. The students and faculty are overall really nice people, and it's less cluique-y than a lot of junior highs and high schools. The atmosphere is really positive, and I would definitely recommend this school.
