We can’t wait to begin “Season 11″ with our students on Monday! I recommend dropping your student off at school between 7:30 and 8:00 to avoid the worst of the traffic (or have them walk or ride to school!). At 8:15 we’ll be gathering the DVS students in the theater to find their advisor, and at 8:30am the students will head up the stairs with their advisory to begin the year! They will get their class schedule in their advisory class that morning.
Here’s a pdf of the week 1 schedule: DVS week 1 schedule
Enjoy the last weekend of summer!
Da Vinci is once again offering an SAT/ACT Prep course to its students through PJ Test Prep, a small Test Prep and Tutoring company based in the south bay. They have been in business since 2005 and have been offering SAT/ACT prep with Da Vinci for many years and they do a great job!
The course, open to students from all DV high schools, will be two weeks, from Monday July 29th through Friday, August 9th. There will be practice tests from 10:00am-2:10pm on Monday 7/29, Thursday 8/1, and Thursday 8/8. The classes will run from 10:00-12:30pm on Tuesday 7/30, Wednesday 7/31, Friday 8/2, Monday 8/5, Tuesday 8/6, Wednesday 8/7, and Friday 8/9. Students are expected to attend all 10 days. The course, normally valued at $500, costs only $50 per student! Partial scholarships are available, so please don’t let the cost stop you from signing up!
After signing up, students pay the $50 course fee to their school’s office. Please make checks out to “Da Vinci Schools” and write “Test Prep” on the memo line. Contact Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org for details or to request a scholarship.
Students and staff at Da Vinci are working to implement a recycling program to educate students and adults on the importance of recycling and raise awareness about how our waste can negatively impact our community and planet.
Students and staff intend to make this a sustainable program and plan to roll it out this coming fall.
We are working on obtaining recycling bins and educational signage to help teach our community the right way to clean up.
If you are interested in learning more or wanting to help with this program please complete this form.

Dear DVS Students and Families,
It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter to all the students and families of Da Vinci Science. For the 2019-2020 school year, I have accepted the position as Principal of Da Vinci Communications. This decision is bittersweet; I am sad to be leaving DVS yet excited about the leadership opportunity at DVC.
Serving as Assistant Principal at Da Vinci Science has been a great honor and a defining part of my life. At DVS, our motto is “this is home,” and I am grateful to have called this place my home for the last ten years. I have enjoyed working with and learning from the staff, students, and families, and I cherish the visits from our DVS alumni. I will miss these special people tremendously, and I look forward to saying hi and checking in with all of you when we cross paths.
It has been a pleasure to work alongside Principal Steve Wallis, who is a tremendous school leader, and I know that DVS is in excellent hands with his continued leadership. As always, I thank you for your support and for the trust that you placed in me and all of the DVS staff as we worked together to provide an excellent education for the DVS students.
Here is the schedule and calendar of due dates for next week… POLs begin on Thursday!
