One of 10 public STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) schools across Ohio, the Dayton Regional STEM School offers students a relevant, real world educational experience which will prepare them for college and opportunities in the work world – in essence, it’s a springboard for developing and maintaining the Dayton region’s talent base. The Dayton Regional STEM School serves students primarily from Clark, Greene and Montgomery counties – which include 30 different school districts – students also come Miami, Shelby and Warren counties. The School opened with its first class of 9th graders on August 17, 2009. In 2010, the School made its first expansion to grades 8, 9 and 10. In the Fall of 2011, the Dayton Regional STEM School opened in a new location with students in grades 7-11. This year (Fall 2012), the Dayton Regional STEM School has hit its ultimate goal as a combined middle and high school campus serving grade 6-12 students.
