Message From Director

  • Welcome to Davies High School!  I am honored to serve as the Director of Davies and to be a part of a school that provides students with exceptional academic and technical training.  Davies is accredited through the New England Association of School and Colleges (NEASC) and has been recognized by the United States Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.  We are proud to provide our students with an academic and technical education in a safe environment enriched by robust supports and rooted in respect for diversity and equity.

    Our faculty, staff, and administration are focused on providing an innovative learning experience for all students.  As educators, it is our duty to provide students with learning opportunities that prepare them to be critical thinkers, decision makers, and consumers of knowledge while developing valuable technical skills that prepare them for the high-demand and high-wage careers of tomorrow.  The greatest strength of our school is our students, so to all students in the Davies community -- I ask that you make the most of your education at Davies and that you capitalize upon the amazing opportunities that are ahead of you. Davies sets the standard for integrated academic and technical education in Rhode Island.  This is who we are. Upon graduation, Davies students are well prepared for both college and careers and to make a positive impact in their community.

    Our partnership with families, business partners, and various State agencies is an integral part of the success of Davies.  We encourage everyone to be involved, whether through our Parent Educator Relations Committee (PERC) or by partnering with us to place students in valuable work-based learning experiences.  Your support, engagement, and feedback are essential to our continued improvement. I look forward to working with all of you as we strive to provide all of our students with an unsurpassed high school education.

    Thank you
