Our Goal

At Davidson High School, we use Positive Education as our framework with a focus on restorative principles and practices. Positive relationships and respect between teachers and students are essential in creating a productive and harmonious learning environment. We believe that through the fostering of self-regulation inherent within the character strengths of Positive Education, students are provided with the tools to moderate their own behaviour and aspire to high expectations. We believe that all students have the potential to achieve and to moderate their own behaviour, and we will guide them in this practise.
