DAVIS SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY
The Davis Community School students and staff are enriched by cultural, social, physical, and academic diversity. We are a neighborhood school that takes pride in the absolute right of every student to receive the best education possible, and we accept the responsibility to create the proper environment necessary in attaining that goal.
We believe that our children are our most valuable resource and our programs must address the needs of each in order that they may succeed. We must promote a positive sense of self-worth and confidence that will allow each student to say "I can do that."
We know that in order to accomplish this, we must enter into a partnership with our parents and community, and with this cooperation we will move forward together in support of our children.

Every Brockton Public School has an individual School Improvement Plan, a two‐year strategic plan for schools to follow to achieve academic and non-academic goals. The plans are developed among school leadership, faculty and staff and serve as a blueprint for success.
School Improvement plans require school personnel to set challenging goals for student performance, and must articulate the strategies the school staff will use to reach their targets.
In addition to approving each school’s SIP, Central Office conducts three to four “Walk Throughs” per school per year to gather data and provide feedback to site-level leaders about how effectively the plans are being implemented. What’s exciting about this is that everyone recognizes the importance of this kind of feedback and is actively supporting this kind of valuable work – principals, teachers, administrators and union officials.
