Welcome to the 2023 - 2024 school year!

I look forward to continuing to support students, families, and staff at Zela Davis this school year. We embrace a vision of educational excellence for every student. Our mission and commitment are to maximize each student's potential. We are dedicated to ensuring that our school provides a welcoming, safe, and bully-free environment. We want students to be actively involved in learning academics, positive values, and self-discipline.

Zela Davis has a long history of academic achievement. In 2016, Zela Davis was designated a "Gold Ribbon School" by the State of California. Our school also received the federal designation of "Title I Academic Achievement School." Additionally, Zela Davis’ Project Lead The Way (PLTW) STEM Program was recognized as California’s 2017 LAUNCH School of the Year. In 2019, three Zela Davis students were keynote speakers at the Project Lead The Way conference in Anaheim, CA. In 2022, Zela Davis was awarded the 2022 California Pivotal Practices Award from the California Department of Education for implementing innovative practices in our Social Emotional Learning and Olweus Bullying Prevention Programs.

Zela Davis also believes in building strong relationships with parents and community members. We will offer a variety of activities and parent workshops specifically designed for parents and guardians.

Many wonderful and exciting things will happen at Zela Davis! We look forward to promoting academic success and building strong community partnerships in the 2023-2024 school year.
