    School History 

    Davis Drive Elementary located in suburban Cary, North Carolina, provides a quality education in a challenging, nurturing, multi-cultural environment.
    Students are actively engaged in learning opportunities and cooperative groups. Technology is a vital component of the integrated curriculum taught at Davis Drive Elementary. All classrooms have computers, which are networked throughout the school and keep staff and students in touch with one another as well as with the global community. Learning extends beyond the confines of the classroom to the outdoor classroom and pond located on the campus or to the student tended garden plots located by the K/1 wing.

    Davis Drive Elementary has also established a strong reputation as a school where high academic standards prevail. Since the 1996-1997 school year, our school has been honored as a North Carolina School of Excellence with over 97% of our students performing at or above grade level. In addition to upholding strong acadamic standards, our school also provides many other opportunities for students such as the jump rope team, recorder ensemble, chorus, photography club, student council, book club, puzzle club, science club, scrabble club.

    A large after school daycare program is operated for the convenience of our parents and supervised by our staff. Davis Drive welcomes parental
    participation in the total school experience. Our PTA is a strong partner in assisting the staff with our mission of educating all of our children.
