    NEW Uniform Company


    Uniforms are required for every student.  Students do not have to wear the logo, but are expected to wear a gold top and navy blue bottoms, Monday through Thursday. The school T shirt may be worn on Fridays.

    Faith Uniforms will be here on Wednesday September 4th, during back to school night. While here, they will be selling uniforms, and taking orders.  The difference between ordering on campus, is that parents can pay with cash.  When ordering online, parents can only pay with a credit card or ATM with a credit card logo.

    Uniform orders will be delivered the first Thursday of each month.  There will be some exceptions, but we will let parents know of the changes.  Orders will also be taken on the delivery days.

    Order online, click the link below to go directly to the company's website.

Her story was made into a short film by a group of high school students and Bailey had the opportunity to read her story to everyone who attended the celebration. Bailey, we are so proud of you. Keep writing, keep stretching your imagination and working toward your goals.

    Congratulation to Ms. Alden for winning an Eduporium Educational Technology Grant in April 2019!

    "Discovering and acquiring new STEM technology shouldn’t be a burden for schools and teachers. Eduporium’s monthly grant program makes it’s a little bit easier.  Every calendar month, we will award one $500 grant to a deserving school or teacher, helping educators build 21st-century learning environments and equipping students with the skills they need for the future. 
    We’re looking for educators who have demonstrated innovation and creativity within their school community, those who have a financial need, and those who can provide a clear and concise product plan that can be implemented within six months." (Eduporium Ed Tech Grant) 

    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. 

    Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance.

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

    bul·ly1  verb

    1. use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force him or her to do what one wants.

    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!
