The Greater Dayton School

The building shown below, located where Great Miami and Mad rivers join in downtown Dayton, will be the new home for The Greater Dayton School, Ohio’s first private non-religious elementary school exclusively dedicated to under-resourced students.  Their core values are defined as:
  • Student-first, student-centered
  • Dream big; work hard
  • Ownership by everyone
  • Do the right thing
They look at education differently, starting with how they view success when their students are 27 years old.  Their goal is that at least 80 percent of them are …
  • Successful by their own definition
  • Physically and mentally healthy
  • Living lives of character and integrity
  • Financially independent
  • Established in a career
Sounds to me like they're onto something and it will be interesting to see if they turn their different approach into many successful outcomes.
