A School Culture of Joy and Achievement

Our Results

Dear Supporters of Dayton Leadership Academies: 

As our school name implies, Dayton Leadership Academies is preparing leaders for today and tomorrow. In this report, we highlight the multiple ways DLA is developing students as leaders and closing opportunity gaps. 

In 2020-2021 DLA achieved many of our school goals, including:

  • Student enrollment of 511, the highest since 2014 

  • Earned 3 star rating in Progress on school report card 

  • 94% average attendance at quarterly parent-teacher conferences 

  • 87% of students enjoy coming to school all or most of the time 

  • 86% of families indicated that DLA is preparing their child for the next grade level 

  • 50% of 8th grade students were accepted into high performing or selective high schools 

We are optimistic about the future for DLA students and our school community. This year we are developing our students to be leaders of their own learning, continuing to partner with families, and are leveraging the power of our community partners. 


Together in Excellence, 


Joshua Ward, Board President                 Tess Mitchner Asinjo, Principal
