"Ask me about 82.9!" This announcement was emboldened on t-shirts worn by staff throughout our school in December, as we celebrated one of many extraordinary student accomplishments! Why is 82.9 such an important number? 82.9% of our 2018 Seniors were college or career ready. We have a higher CCR percentage than Erlanger, Campbell County, Walton Verona, Silver Grove, Pendleton County, Boone County, Grant County, Kenton County, Carroll County, Williamstown, Newport, Ludlow, Covington and Bellevue!!!! It is the highest college and career readiness rate in the history of our school. We will continue to show our pride and celebrate 82.9 days this year as we continue to inspire, engage and grow our students!
Our Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP) students have been elated to partner with Aerial Intelligence Solutions, a high tech aerospace company located near the Veterans’ Memorial on Sixth Avenue. Mike and AIS staff recently visited students, shared drone technology and recorded infrared drone flights over and around Dayton High School in a special project to assist our students with a passion/problem/project based grant proposal. Recorded infrared drone footage was used to diagnose problems in and around our school, such as breeches in insulating material or wet insulation, electrical overheating or wiring, conduit or roof-installed equipment, plus areas of heat loss through brick, masonry or defective exhaust vents. We look forward to continued student projects and partnership with Mike and AIS staff. Please visit their Facebook page to view unique drone footage atop St. Bernard church and stop by their store to find out more about how they are helping customers and impacting our community!
