    Alot of people say Dayton Street is a "bad" school. Some say its a "failing" school. Though they have one thing right it is a failing school but its not such a bad school. The teachers really care about giving students a good education there. its just some students there need a little extra "push" and with that extra "push" i know Dayton Street School can turn those horrible steriotypes into wonderful compliments ! and if you shall ask me how I know ? well because i was a former student there for 7-8 yrs. I go to TEAM Charter now but i still dont think there is another school out there that is as encouraging and determined with so much resilience and perseverance as Dayton Street School ! )
