A Message from Our Principal

Welcome to General Ray Davis Middle School, home of the Golden Eagles and the Academy for Performing and Visual Arts at GRDMS.  I am excited to have you as part of the GRDMS family and look forward to working with you and your child as we seek to S.O.A.R. to the highest heights “The Davis Way”.  You will find that we are rich in tradition and that we seek excellence academically, artistically, and athletically.   


Our focus is Davis United.  As part of this focus, it is the desire of the administration, teachers, and staff to unite our GRDMS community and create an environment that is safe and conducive to an enriched learning experience and allows each student to be successful.  For this to happen, we will provide our students with high standards of excellence in our instructional practices, communication with parents, and emotional/behavioral supports.  We hope that you will join us in this journey as we become a school community that is Davis United. 


Our students at General Ray Davis Middle School S.O.A.R.  This acronym reminds our students of the legacy of our name sake, General Ray Davis, as well as our expectations at GRDMS.   


S – Self-Control 

O – On-Task Behavior 

A – Appropriate Attitudes 

R – Responsible Actions 


Through these actions, students can be highly successful and achieve their goals.  It is our hope that you partner with us in reinforcing these expectations at home and in the community. 


Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teachers, counselor, administrator, or myself if we can be of any assistance in helping your child be successful at GRDMS.  I look forward to a fantastic school year.
