Dayton Regional STEM School Reviews
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.
I've been to STEM for 6 years and in that time I've been given many opportunities that other students my age wouldn't have ever been given. While I appreciate everything I've been allowed to accomplish at STEM, it's flaws are glaring and frequent in some of the more basic areas. Things like school lunches are minimalist and change yearly with catering switches. Other smaller things that wouldn't normally be an issue at a regular school come up frequently as well. Overall however, where normal schools might fail, STEM excels with it's teaching philosophy and partnerships with colleges like Wright State and Sinclair.
For the most part, we have been happy with our daughter's teachers. She had a math teacher this year who insisted on treating the students like graduate level students, not 8th graders. Some, like my daughter, didn't easily grasp the material early in the year and we had to spend hundreds of dollars in outside tutoring over the course of three months because this individual wasn't helpful. She also had a no forgiveness policy, even when the majority of the class performed poorly on assignments. No extra credit, no curves, no re-dos. We were really unhappy with this teacher. Consequently, our daughter has always excelled in Mathematics and could only eke a 'B' average with this teacher. When you have recently received a Phd in Mathematics and insist on your students calling you "Doctor," you should be teaching college, not middle school math. Knowing Math doesn't make you a good teacher for children!
