Success Secret:
Learn. Grow. Lead. For a better World. We want our students to be advocates on behalf of the community and contributors of solutions to these problems. In order to do so, they will need a rigorous education that involves real world problem solving and higher-order thinking skills to address these complicated issues. At Dayton Heights, we are currently educating our students, teachers, families, and community on these issues. In partnership with many of our local community organizations, Dayton Heights has provided workshops, informational seminars, and professional development on various environmental issues. We want to establish an Urban Environmental Science Magnet Center in order to continue to work collaboratively with our current partnerships and to expand to other areas. We want to continue to provide opportunities to integrate science into our core curriculum and not just as a separate entity.
