Welcome to Stivers School for the Arts. We offer programs in the arts, as well as a full range of quality academics. Stivers School for the Arts is the only public school in the Dayton City School District that has been designated as a grade 7-12 school. Students enter Stivers at the 7th grade level by audition and make a full six-year commitment.
Stivers has a rigorous academic program that consistently produces test scores that far exceed all other schools in the district. Stivers' state report card is similar to that of high-performing suburban schools. Stivers is a prime example of how participation in the Arts enhances academic performance.
