Housing for Student Teachers
Thanks to our community partner Lagoon Amusement Park, we can offer free apartments for student teachers during their placement with us.
This provides an opportunity for those who live some distance away to come, teach with us, and see if Davis is the right place to begin their teaching career.
Note: Partially refundable deposit and proof of renter’s insurance required.
"2 bedroom apartment for free is a steal of a deal! It's nice to have a dishwasher as well. We used the bunk beds as shelves to organize our storage, so that was nice too. The property is pretty well kept up. Office people were friendly and attended to our needs."

"I have loved every second of my apartment and am so grateful to Davis School District and Lagoon for this opportunity! It is so nice to have a place close to my school and in the community I work in! The process is so simple and they work with you in a timely and professional manner. You feel wanted and needed and it is a wonderful place to be. The apartment has anything you would need and is very close to target, several food locations and other amenities. You will not regret coming and teaching here for one second."
