Holistic Teaching: 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.

Project Based Learning: 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.

Together: 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.
