Great school ,best teachers and great staff .

Great school. Some teachers are touchy, but most are dedicated to their jobs and it shows through their students. Wish the online textbooks were a bit more refined and the administration would pay attention to the infrastructure of the facility, but overall you really can't complain about this school.

Both my kids graduated from Jonathan Dayton. And both went on to great colleges. Good teachers and support.

As a student at this school, I am "proud" of this school, but the teachings are really mediocre. The school held a fundraiser a year ago to acquire air conditioners for all classrooms, but when we came back we had ACs, but most were old and falling apart. A month later, we had an electronic notice board that wasn't really needed and it's a waste of money. The laptops are good for learning, but they are a distraction and an excuse for teachers not to accept late homework since we can just do it on our laptops. I sit in the back of one of my classes and whenever our class take "notes" on the laptops, almost everyone is playing games. Also, one of my friends transferred from another high school in which he had already taken chemistry as a sophomore, but JDHS made him take it again as a Junior because they claim that a half a year of Chem wasn't good enough. He has a 100 in the class. The school is okay, but the principal and vice-principal aren't up to the job. The only remarkable thing about the school are the excellent councilors and administrators. They need to get their act together and soon.
