Our School

Dayton Grade School, the sole K-5 elementary school in Dayton, Oregon, serves families living in rural Yamhill County. Approximately 380 students attend Dayton Grade School and the average class size is 24. A transitional bilingual program and differentiated instruction that meets the learning needs of all students are just some of the factors that shape Dayton Grade School’s exemplary tradition.

All students in the Dayton School District have access to a device for learning. We are a 1:1 school district with iPads for kindergarten through 1st grade students and Chromebooks for 2nd-5th grade students. 

Our principal is Dana Symons. She is bilingual in Spanish and English and has taught English Language Development K-12. Before that, she was a classroom teacher at the grade school. Dana and her husband enjoy spending time with their three daughters. The family enjoys soccer, spending time with their horses, and reading.
