Having attended DRSS from 6th-12th grade. I have seen the school through many phases. The school truly has grown to be amazing places for students who enjoy hands on work and critical thinking. I will admit this school is not for every student since it uses a very unique learning style (Project Based Learning), but if you or your child truly has an interest in STEM fields, then this is the place to be for the content and the college readiness programs.

The Dayton Regional STEM School was a wonderful place for me to spend the majority of my educational career. The constant innovation, friendly environment, and excellent student involvement has made my time interesting and educational. New facilities, such as the Air Force Research Laboratory (which is in the school) and 3D printing areas show how dedicated the school is to STEM principles.
DRSS is a wonderful alternative to the local public schools. They take pride in meeting the student where they are and letting the student direct their own learning. Very open to creative projects! Very supportive of individual differences. Some teachers are slow in entering grades but they are giving feedback directly to the student if the student request it. Some of the teachers will take personal interest in the students and that really facilitates the learning process! It was the perfect school for me. I was ready for my college experience.
