    Anti-Bully Zone

    Here at Dayton Heights we are a bully free zone.

    Every spring students create their own anti-bullying posters to display at the beginning of each new school year.

    The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.

    About Us

              Since 1910, Dayton Heights has been a part of Los Angeles, even before the city was founded. Throughout every changing immigrant population of the neighborhood, we have influenced and educated. 

               At Dayton Heights we are a community of learners comprised of families, teachers, staff, and community members committed to empowering our students to become fearless thinkers and innovators. Students are engaged and learn in a rigorous standards-based environment where they develop their critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving skills. The students participate in authentic and meaningful learning in all curricular areas. This collaborative learning process will not only prepare our students to become college and career ready graduates, but to transform them to become innovators in the 21st century. We are Los Angeles, creating the future. We are the Dayton Heights Dragons!
