Student Body

In middle school many students feel like 'an odd ducky'. Illustration by Madeleine Levin

da Vinci serves approximately 465 students, (about 155 at each grade level).

Most years our student body mix is approximately 30% boys & 70% girls.

Currently our study body is 75% white with 25% self-identified as students of color students including African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and Asian-Pacific Islanders.

About 20% of our students are identified as Talented & Gifted, another 16% are receiving Special Ed services.

About 25% of students qualify for free and reduced meals. PPS is actively working through the lottery process to increase this number to be more reflective of overall district percentages. The current district-assigned target is for da Vinci to have 45% of our students in 2017-18 qualify for free/reduced meals.

Our students come to us from across the PPS district, applying in the early spring the year before the year they wish to enter. For details of this process see the Admissions page.

da Vinci strives to always cultivate a Safe, Fair, and Friendly collaborative learning community of students and adults in order for each member to feel comfortable sharing their creative and academic best.
