About Us

Stivers School for the Arts is a public arts magnet school – Grades 7 through 12.

Established in 1908

Celebrating over 100 Years – “Giving Our Best Performance”

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.

Stivers is located in the historic neighborhood of St. Anne's Hill in Dayton.  To read more about it, please go to www.stanneshill.org.
