Evening of Strings
On Monday, Oct. 29, Evening of Strings will feature 425 string musicians from nine Miami Valley high schools (including Stivers School for the Arts) in one glorious night of music, at 7 p.m. in the Dayton Masonic Center. The concert is free and open to the public. For 50 years, local orchestra directors have collaborated on this non-competitive festival, helping students experience the joy of making music together. Pictured below is a photograph from last year's performance and a link to an article about this event on Dayton.com.
Stivers School for the Arts
STIVERS SCHOOL FOR THE ARTS IS A PUBLIC ARTS MAGNET SCHOOL – GRADES 7 THROUGH 12
ESTABLISHED IN 1908
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.
