  • Davis High

    Four among top Utah schools

    Congratulations go out to four Davis School District high schools ranked among the top 15 high schools in Utah.
     
    Davis High was recognized as the second best high school in the latest rankings from the U.S. News and World Report. Additionally, Viewmont High was ranked No. 6 and Bountiful High ranked No. 9.
     
    Also worth mentioning is Woods Cross High which ranked No. 11 in the state.
     
    The rankings are calculated using the school’s performance on math and reading assessments compared to the averages of other schools in the state. Also considered is the proportion of racial minorities or economically disadvantaged populations. 
     
    Schools in the top rankings must have a minimum graduation of 80 percent and a high number of students completing Advanced  Placement and International Baccalaureate exams. 
     
    The graduation percentages for the four ranked Davis School District schools are 97, 96, 96 and 94 respectively.
     
    District Communication & Operations Director Chris Williams said the rankings show the teamwork happening between parents and teachers, which is what makes any school great. 


    “If you establish a working relationship with your children’s teacher, that school is going to be an excellent school,” Williams said. “Kudos to Davis, Viewmont, Bountiful and Woods Cross — fabulous — but it continues to be something that could only occur if there is a team effort going on.”
     
    Davis High was also ranked among the top 1,000 high schools in the nation, coming in at No. 754. Only one other school in Utah made that list.


    “Top-ranked schools succeed in three main areas: exceeding expectations on state proficiency tests, offering challenging coursework and graduating their students,” Anita Narayan, U.S. News’ managing editor of education, said in a statement.

  • Local students among National Merit Scholarship winners

    Four students in the Davis School District were awarded $2,500 National Merit scholarships. The 2,500 designees nationally were chosen from more than 15,000 finalists.

     

    Local students Kimball L. Johnson, Viewmont High; Isaac S. Crosby and Tynan R. Sigg, Davis High, and Kollin Murphy, Layton High, were among 25 Utah students named for the award.

     

    The scholars were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors. The students were judged on their academic record, difficulty of subjects studied, standardized test scores and leadership contributions. Additionally, each finalist submitted an essay and a recommendation from a high school official.

  • Graduation culminates years of
    hard work, dedication

    “You don’t just luck into things...You build step by step, whether its friendships or opportunities.”

    — Barbara Bush

    Reid Newey As this school year comes to a close, I want to thank the teachers, administrators and staff who every day build opportunities for the children that attend school in Davis District. Throughout the district, the dedication, passion and genuine concern of all educators and support staff is evident.

     

    The end of the school year is one of my most favorite times of the year, because we have the opportunity to attend graduation and witness the joy (and sometimes sadness) that comes with the accomplishment of completion. I am always impressed with the actions of families and friends at graduation and love to hear the words of students as they talk about their school experience. Some of the memorable quotes from last year’s graduation speeches:

     

    • “....the faculty KNOWS who we are!”
    • “We all want bonfires, sometimes all we get are sparks”
    • “Highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them!” —Kennedy;
    • “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts;”
    • “Ask more questions, talk about yourself less.” — Macklemore;
    • “Life will have more purpose if you focus on others;”
    • “It will all work out in the end, if it’s not working out, then it’s not the end;”

     

    And one of my favorites that was related by a student who said that his father would offer this encouragement every time they went to a family party or social event, “WE are not here for the food!” The student went on to explain that the focus should be on human interaction and appreciation rather than things.

     

    One of my most anticipated graduations to attend is at the Vista Center. There is always a great “abundance mentality” constantly exuded by the graduating students. The students’ happiness and joy is usually directed at their classmates and families who they seem to be happier for them than they are for themselves, even though they are the one graduating!

     

    We wish all students, families and staff members a great final month to an exceptional school year. Thank you for allowing us to participate with you.

    — Reid Newey, Superintendent
