Welcome to Dayton Junior High!

Welcome to Dayton Junior and High School!  We are a small school that strives to provide a positive learning atmosphere for all.  Our talented group of teachers and staff encourage all of our  students to participate in academics, sports, and the community.  Our goals are to provide opportunities for success and to maximize the performance for all of our students.   

The Dayton administration and staff over the last four years have been reimagining education to be more purposeful and empowering for our students.  We believe that all students have creative genius and it is our responsibility to help them find it. We know that the students of today can learn faster than they can be taught, so we are working to create a learning environment that does not put a ceiling on the student's’ potential.  We have developed partnerships with our community and industry leaders to provide a more rich and experiential learning environment by collaborating and harnessing the expertise of others. At Dayton, we are not afraid to fail, because we know that’s where the real learning occurs.

I am the new principal of both the Junior High and High School this year and am excited to continue the work that has been going on at our two schools.   Growing and learning alongside such a talented group of staff and students is what fuels me.
