  • School is a joke. Giving tickets to students for class disruption is wrong. Writing a ticket and not giving a copy to a student is worse. Now that student may sit in jail for what the officer forgot to do because of a missed court date. When you call the school, no one will call you back. They have to get their stories straight first to cover their you know what's. And people wander why Dayton has such a high drop out rate. If someone gets in trouble one time they are labeled as a problem child and get picked on for the rest of their time there no matter how much improvement they have shown. A lot of it has to do with the officers too. I say get someone in that cares to talk with parents that care about the well being of their children. We do pay their salaries through our school taxes. We do have rights to know what is going on with our children.

  • Dayton High School is really sucky, though SOME of the teacher's are GREAT other's treat the students poorly..They only care about getting paid rather than teaching the children. LUNCH is horrible the lunch ladies take their time getting food and people do not have enough time to complete their meal.Students skip in line and make other's upset which leads to violent behavior. Dayton High School only care's about the sports. Coach Young is doing outstanding so far but hopefully this school will improve now that he is the head principle.

  • While the teachers of this school are outstanding, the principal has some serious issues. She has lied to staff members in attempts to force them to resign, treats the students poorly (ie as in treats them like misbehaving three year olds, even when they have done nothing wrong), does not show up on campus until at least an hour after school has started, and generally treats all students as trouble makers who have gotten caught.

  • This is an awesome school. The building is new, there are plenty of activities and not much in the way of drugs, crime or bad kids, although all schools have some. Mrs. Elliott is a great administrator.
