<p dir="ltr"><span><b>Holistic Teaching: </b></span><span>In holistic learning students find purpose and connection with the community, their social emotional well-being, humanitarian values, etc. Holistic education instills curiosity, and develops better communication and social skills. This approach encourages children to make connections in a subject, using their creative skills. It develops psychological, social, and emotional growth, and it makes learning natural and engaging. Students will find value in themselves and understand how they can contribute to a larger global society. Students will also learn how to cope with trauma and strategies to ensure they are emotionally ready to engage in personal and professional relationships.</span></p> <p dir="ltr"><span><b>Project Based Learning: </b></span><span>In Project Based Learning students acquire knowledge through solving real-world problems and challenges. Teachers begin with a complex question and students take time to investigate and respond to the question. Students learn to work collaboratively and engage in deeper thinking in order to solve the problem or answer the question presented. This will be the foundation of teaching and learning at The Dayton School.</span></p> <span><b>Together: </b></span><span>Both styles of learning will prepare our students academically and socially for success beyond high school. Upon leaving, students will be prepared for college/university, immediate job placement, a technical field, or a trade.</span>

<div><b><img class="alignleft wp-image-131" src="https://daytonschoolohio.org/wp-content/uploads/Mentor3.jpg" alt="" width="472" height="315" />Project Based Learning:</b> Project based learning is offered in all classrooms within the Dayton School. When children experience learning they are more likely to retain the knowledge learned during the learning experience. For that reason, and many others, students who attend TDS will engage in meaningful class projects that are challenging, require teamwork, and have real world applications.</div>   <div><b>After School Clubs for students:</b> The Dayton School recognizes that many of the students served may not have anywhere to go, but home after school. Instead of ending learning at the end of the school day, TDS offers after school clubs that will allow students to socialize with peers and learn more about things they are interested in. The following clubs will be offered to students who attend TDS. PLease note that these clubs may change depending on student, parent, and community input.

The Dayton School

The development of The Dayton School (TDS) was produced out of a need for quality middle and high schools in an area that lacks such programming. TDS is located in an underserved community that is in need of a school community that prepares adolescents for life after high school. TDS caters to youth entering grades 6th- 8th grade, and will add a grade level each year. The School incorporates project based learning alongside holistic teaching to ensure all students’ needs are being met.

Mission– The mission of The Dayton School is to provide 100% of the students with a project-based education infused with a holistic approach. The Dayton School is committed to graduating 100% of its students ready to become contributing members of society upon graduation through joining the workforce, enrolling in post-secondary education, or through trade school enrollment.

Vision- The Dayton School will be a nurturing, safe and professional environment that supports the educational success and social, emotional, and physical development of all students. Courses will be academically engaging, standards-based, and student -centered. Teaching staff will be highly qualified (according to ODE), effective, and caring instructors who are attentive to the educational, cultural, and physical needs of students and the school community. Parents will be an intricate positive catalyst for our school community. Students will be respectful, self-disciplined, collaborative, problem solvers that use critical thinking, current information and regard for the community to make informed decisions.
