What Our Students Have To Say

  • When I first came to the Davidson Academy, I worried about fitting in. I quickly realized that everybody at the Academy, both students and staff members, were, and still are, super friendly. I hope you apply to the Davidson Academy of Nevada. Take it from me; it’s an incredible school.”

  • One of the things I love about the Academy is how the staff is able to accommodate students' interests and needs. Due to the wonderful relationship that the Academy has with the University of Nevada, Reno, every student can take classes at the University geared toward their own tastes.”

  • I might venture to say that the Academy reeks of learning; a chance to learn awaits in nearly every corner of the school.”
