"Quality Education by Caring People"
South Davis Elementary School is a K - 5 school located in the Southtowns of Western New York. South Davis is one of four elementary schools in the Orchard Park Central School District. It is located at 51 South Davis Street in the Village of Orchard Park. South Davis is proud to be a part of "village life" in Orchard Park. The school is conveniently located near Yates Park, the Orchard Park Municipal Building, the Orchard Park Historical Society, the Quaker Arts Pavilion and the Orchard Park Middle School.
In the Spring of 1952 the residents of the Orchard Park Central School District welcomed a "new kid on the block". The new "kid" was actually a new school!
South Davis Primary School opened in 1952 to ease overcrowding at the District's Lincoln Building. Amidst great fanfare, South Davis was opened to service youngsters in kindergarten through 2nd grade. At that time, South Davis consisted merely of one hallway. It didn't have a cafeteria, a gymnasium or even a library.
Over time, as the District began to grow, it was determined that South Davis would be expanded with classrooms and a gym, a library and a cafeteria to accommodate the expanding student enrollment in the District.
Therefore, in 1976, South Davis became a full fledged elementary school servicing students in grades kindergarten through sixth grade.
Even in it's earliest days, South Davis prided itself on providing students with an outstanding education in all areas: academics, the arts, and physical education. Although time has marched on, South Davis' commitment to educating the youth of Orchard Park has not changed at all since the Spring of 1952.
Today, South Davis enjoys a state-wide reputation as an outstanding school, a school where students strive for excellence under the tutelage of supportive parents and caring and committed staff.
