During the 2004-2005 school year, 20 students at Davis Middle School took part in a year-long Taiko residency with Eitetsu Hayashi through the Dublin Arts Council. Music teacher Susann Blair’s love of the art of Taiko led her to carry it on to future classes as students in 6th through 12th grades continue to learn and practice this art.

8th grade students have the opportunity to take Japanese 1 class at Scioto High School, prior to the start of the middle school day.
