Dayton High School Reviews

I am a senior at Dayton High School, so I could say my experience from here has been very good so far. I always got the classes I liked and never had any problems with changing the ones I didn't like. There are plenty of great resources for your interest, ranging from your creativity with the wonderful art teacher, or to your athletic ability with numerous sport-programs you can choose from. Our advanced placement courses (AP) are also very well organized, meaning students from Dayton High School are mentally prepared and/or already have a head start with college credit. Things I would like to see change would start with the food. It usually consists of the same foods weekly and doesn't have a wide range of options. Another thing our school could improve on is technology, it all works but they are starting to get worn out; for example, the Chrome-Books we have are starting to feel out of date. Other than that, this school is great for new students and great for new opportunities.

I really liked how there was many teachers there to help you better understand subjects when you needed it. I give much credits to some of the teachers rather than the school itself. The teachers is what made the days here better. The school itself did not care too much for the school as a whole to strive for excellence. The school is very much strict to even participate in school programs and activities. Very bland to only caring about its city of Dayton in reference to its colors and agriculture. As a school, I believe is very important to recognize and practice in all types of interest and hobbies for the students. Every student is different, every students learns different also.
This school is in a very small school, therefore, everyone knows everyone. There’s obviously bullies, but what school doesn’t? This school was average in my opinion.
