Student Body

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

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

Most years our student body mix is approximately 40% boys & 60% girls.

Currently our study body is 77% white with 23% 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 8% are receiving Special Ed services.

About 25% of students qualify for free and reduced meals. PPS is actively working to increase this number through the lottery process. Our target is to have 45% of our students qualify for free/reduced meals, reflecting the district average.

Our students come from throughout 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 cultivates a responsible, cooperative learning community of students and adults in order for each member to feel comfortable sharing their creative best. Students are expected to behave in a respectful manner in regards to themselves, their peers and adults.
