Davisville Middle School services diverse family friendly neighborhoods in the northeast region of beautiful North Kingstown. Davisville Middle School houses students in grades 6, 7, and 8 and is committed to providing students with pathways for academic and personal success through challenging and diverse educational opportunities. Davisville embraces the middle school philosophy and is structured around the widely varying needs and characteristics of young adolescents.

In addition to core academic class offerings students are able to take a variety of unified arts courses: coding, keyboarding, financial literacy, robotics, music, chorus, band, orchestra, Spanish 1, world cultures, wood technology, art, literature, and media science. Extracurricular activities are also an important extension of our school day. Our offerings include International Club, Student Leadership Team, Yearbook, Robotics Team, Science Olympiad, Homework Club, and OMS Dragon Chronicle. Students also participate in a variety of community service activities to benefit families in and outside of our community. Davisville also offers a full complement of athletic sports including a Unified program.

Davisville embraces the Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) to raise behavioral expectations and assist students in achieving positive social, emotional and learning goals. In addition to PBIS, Davisville blends Dr. King's six principles of a peaceful community, the Kindness Challenge Acts and the Sandy Hook "Say Hello" program to cultivate and promulgate peaceful problem solving, kind actions, and inclusive behaviors.

Our faculty and staff members, who through collaboration and teamwork, acknowledge and address the unique needs of our developing teens. Our faculty is student-focused and provides access to challenging curriculum through differentiated and collaborative lessons. They strive to make personal connections and build relationships with each other and our students in order to strengthen our school community. At Davisville we challenge each other to live up to our motto, "Be the Best You Can Be"!
