    "Absolutely fabulous! Jonathan Dayton High School has a wonderful and supportive administration, and since it's a small town school, everyone knows everybody and you're able to receive help if the need arises. JD is the caliber of a good private school. Academics are rigerous and prepare students for collage and beyond. The new turf field gives the students a sence of pride about their school. Wonderful school overall. Highly recommend it."

    "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 that wasn't really needed and it's a waste of money. The laptops are good for learning, but they are a distraction and an excuse for teachers not to accept late homework since we can just do it on our laptops. I sit in the back of one of my classes and whenever our class take "notes" on the laptops, almost everyone is playing games. Also, one of my friends transferred from another high school in which he had already taken chemistry as a sophomore, but JDHS made him take it again as a Junior because they claim that a half a year of Chem wasn't good enough. He has a 100 in the class. The school is okay, but the principal and vice-principal aren't up to the job. The only remarkable thing about the school are the excellent councilors and administrators. They need to get their act together and soon."

    "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 (most, not all) aren't up to the task. The laptop program is a financial sinkhole, and the only real electives outside of art or computers are only available through the Votech program, which is rumored to be cut soon for financial reasons. The superintendent is all about the money in the schools pocket, but is very loathe to spend any of it (it's taken a few years to get the cafeteria ceiling repaired? Really?). The kids are alright, if a little on the snooty side. It's the teachers and the administration that have to get their acts together."

    "If your child does not fit into their perfect little world then they are completely unqualified to handle the situation. Very weak leadership with a principal that will answer her cell phone during a parent meeting. Most situations are handled with either a suspention or detention unless of course you are one of their "favorites". My son had between 5 and 7 different spanish teachers in one year, yea believe it. They also instituted a 0 period which means the studends sit for 42 minutes and do nothing, they will tell you to study but the real story is its all about money and the teachers pouting like juviniles. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for your child, I should have."
