About Dayton Public Schools Dayton Public Schools is an urban district of more than 15,000 students in pre-kindergarten through high school with the second highest ... See more graduation rate (83.3%) among Ohio’s big city districts and more National Board Certified teachers than any other district in the Dayton region. One of our high schools, Stivers School for the Arts, was ranked among America’s best public high schools for the second year in a row and moved up from bronze to silver, in U.S. News & World Report. DPS has produced 19 Gates millennium scholars since 2000, and four National Coca-Cola Finalists since 2003, two of which were national winners. In the 2008-2009 school year, DPS high schools collectively improved in every subject area on the Ohio Graduation Test. DPS also achieved above two years’ academic growth in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade on the Ohio Achievement Test. The diversity of our student body is matched only by the variety of our academic offerings. Students benefit from a solid academic program in our 30 schools and two special centers. Because students learn in different ways, DPS families will find single-gender and Montessori schools at the PK-8 level and programs that challenge students at the high school level. These include our Academic Magnet Academy at Thurgood Marshall, cutting-edge career pathways at David H. Ponitz Career Technology Center, International Baccalaureate at Meadowdale, and visual and performing arts at Stivers School for the Arts. DPS is partnering with the Dayton Foundation, the University of Dayton’s Raymond L. Fitz Center for Leadership in Community, and a host of local businesses and health and social service organizations to operate five Dayton Public preK-8 schools as community centers in the after-school hours. The centers are part of the district’s initiative to create strong neighborhood schools.
