Welcome to Davie County Schools! Starting Kindergarten is a significant event in your child’s life. Your first introduction to Davie County Schools is a program for parents; Kindergarten Orientation will be at each elementary school on Thursday, March 15, 2018, at 6:00 pm.
We are delighted you have chosen to join our DCS school family. We strive to meet the educational growth of today's students and provide a positive learning environment as we prepare for the changing needs of the future. We want to prepare children with the knowledge and skills needed to excel and lead in the 21st Century through a school culture that promotes wellness, academic excellence, curiosity, and creativity.
DCS staff members, in partnership with you, are committed to ensuring that your child is engaged in extraordinary learning opportunities that stir creativity, cultivate thinking, enhance physical and mental well-being, and optimize the whole learning experience. Children, their families, and our dedicated staff and the community who make our schools unique. Enrolling a child in a new school can be overwhelming, but we hope the information below will be helpful.
