A Focus on Educational Excellence...

Phalen Leadership Academies at Davis Elementary
  • Phalen Leadership Academies is excited to serve the students and families at Davis Elementary School as well as the Montgomery community. Our goal is to support our scholars at Davis in outperforming their peers and making Davis one of the strongest charters in the state. 

    The PLA educational model utilizes best practices in data-driven instruction and differentiated learning to deliver instruction in core subjects, creating a uniquely rigorous and personalized learning experience for every child. Children who are behind academically receive the daily, personalized attention that they need to accelerate their progress towards proficiency. This data-driven model, utilizing rigorous curricula and small-group and one-to-one intervention, has been the core engine for raising the academic achievement of our scholars. A wide range of learning opportunities help scholars explore their interests, reinforce core subject skills in hands-on projects, increase awareness of possible career paths, and see the relevance of their learning to their lives. This may include hands-on enrichment courses in the arts, STEM, culture & citizenship, and cultural history, supplemented with out-of-class opportunities that build excitement for college and careers.

    Our ultimate vision is that our scholars master key academic skills, and demonstrate strong character, as exhibited by: honesty, service to others, a superior work ethic, and a strong vision for and belief in their futures. We believe that with the right education, all children can ​fulfill their ​tremendous ​innate potential​!
