Dayton high school is and okay school but I really wish they had more college resources available. They don't really talk much about college or the things to prepare for it. We have a college and career center but it's not open that often, also all junior year they never talked about scholarships or college they just had some college trips and a project. I wish they had more college stuff available.

Even though I have yet to graduate, Dayton High School has been overall amazing. The staff is great and they offer you the help that you need. What I like most about Dayton High is that the whole student body and staff know you. That way, it is way easier to get help because you're friends with everyone and anybody is willing to help you. Something that I would like to see change is that we don't have like cooking class, pottery class, building classes, sewing class. I hope to see that go into action soon. Those classes would be good and helpful to have at Dayton High School.
It didn't help me reach my potential in the slightest. The classes are easy for the most part, and kids still constantly fail then blame it on the teachers. The parental bias, especially in the administration is ridiculous. The counselor is extremely unhelpful, her assistant is more so. The only reason I would choose this school again is for the few great teachers, my peers, and if i didn't want to work very hard.
