Welcome to Davenport Community Schools – A District of Distinction!

The Davenport Community School District has the resources of a large district with the small class sizes and hands-on approach of a hometown school. With over 30 schools serving Blue Grass, Buffalo, Davenport and Walcott, Davenport Community Schools are resource-rich, blending student and family support programs with a wide array of curricular offerings to create a quality learning environment for all students. High expectations and low class sizes, customized curriculum and a caring learning environment, over $135 million in recent facilities improvement and high tech classrooms and library-media centers… the Davenport Community Schools offer all students a world-class learning experience.

And in the spirit of celebration, please enjoy the following “look back” video that features members of the Class of 2014 as they recall their favorite experiences at Davenport Community Schools. And to view more videos, please visit the Davenport Community Schools Youtube Channel.
