Dayton City School District Reviews

I've gone to Dayton Christian for 13 years. There are some good teachers here, but there are also some that really shouldn't be teaching. Administration has changed hands more times than I can count. The rules and dress code are vastly biased. Favoritism runs rampant and the families with money rule the school. On the positive side, I've met some of the best teachers and friends that I could imagine. The school has provided me with some great experiences over the years but could definitely use a cultural revision and some more diverse, knowledgeable, and progressive people in the administration positions.

My experience at Stivers has truly been a blessing, from the beginning of 7th grade until this year which is my daughters senior year. The environment is very inviting to the students and parents, I know most of the students in my daughters senior class, I have watched them develop and grow into wonderful young people
I love Dayton Public Schools. The school I’m at is one of the best schools academically. Dayton Public can be dysfunctional. Between budget cuts, firing, hiring, and people just quitting. Many different cultures and ethnicities are in Dayton public schools. Which I find very cool bc not every time looks the same.
