The spirit of the Wright Brothers lives on in Dayton, Ohio as our community continues to be a major hub for innovation. With Wright Patterson Air Force Base, multiple major healthcare networks, a reinvigorated high-tech manufacturing industry, and more, Dayton has a fast-growing need for skilled STEM professionals, creative thinkers, and innovative leaders.

When Ohio House Bill 119 was passed in 2007, which created a new K-12 education model for public independent STEM schools, Dayton was the perfect location for the first regional campus. In 2009, the Dayton Regional STEM School was founded, serving 76 students in ninth grade from across the community. Since then, we have grown our student population ten-fold, expanded to serve grades 6-12, repurposed a vacant shopping plaza into an innovative learning lab, built relationships with hundreds of professional partners, and become a highlight for STEM education in the Dayton region and beyond.
