Message from Principal McHale


Welcome to the home of the Blue Devils! Davis Senior High School, at its present location since 1960, is dedicated to the academic success of every student. We provide our students with a safe and inclusive environment that fosters mutual understanding, positive relationships, and personal growth. Our talented and creative teachers inspire our students with engaging lessons that are relevant to our students’ lives focusing on our Graduate Profile competencies: Creativity and Innovation, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Adaptability and Resilience, Communication, Collaboration, and Civic and Cultural Awareness. Skilled counselors and classified staff support our students effectively and help our families access our school’s resources.

Our students get involved and gain new friends at Davis Senior High School in many ways. Students participate in nearly fifty student-led clubs on campus and more than thirty sports and academic teams. The All Student Center, our newest facility, is the hub of campus life. The ASC provides fresh and healthful meals daily, and it is an inviting place where students can meet with friends to study and socialize. The College and Career Center in the ASC offers students chances to seek volunteer opportunities during high school and explore pathways to their future. At our Academic Center, students receive help with their assignments in nearly every subject from U.C. Davis tutors.

Davis Senior High School is a place where students pursue their interests in broad range of academic course offerings and extracurricular activities that foster 21st Century learning in preparation for college and career. By partnering with students, parents, staff, and community members, we are continuing our rich tradition of excellence in academics, the arts, and athletics.

Go Big Blue!

Tom McHale, Principal
