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 ...  Read more

Very much a small-town school, and not always in a good way. The students here for the most part have all grown up together, which is fine, but whenever a new student enters the fray, they tend to be distrusted and avoided. Coaches only care about their sports, not their classes, and most of the faculty ...  Read more

If your child does not fit into their perfect little world then they are completely unqualified to handle the situation.

Quality educators in a great, safe town. There could be a bigger push for extracurriculars.

I am a student of the school, and although the amount of extracurriculars may be sub-par, the staff is very qualified. There are new clubs being added every year, and there are a wide range of them already. It is a safe, friendly environment, and (in my opinion) good for children.

I agree that there is too much politics at the school, but I found the teachers to be highly qualified, especially in the Science Department. Both of my children had Mrs. Smith and she was extremely dedicated and a wonderful teacher.

There is too much politics in the administration. Teacher quality and amount of extracurricular activities are poor. Serious students are not pushed or tested to their extreme.
