Welcome to Stivers School for the Arts. We offer programs in the arts, as well as a full range of quality academics. Stivers School for the Arts is the only public school in the Dayton City School District that has been designated as a grade 7-12 school. Students enter Stivers at the 7th grade level by audition and make a full six-year commitment. Stivers has a rigorous academic program that consistently produces test scores that far exceed all other schools in the district. Stivers’ state report card is similar to that of high-performing suburban schools. Stivers is a prime example of how participation in the Arts enhances academic performance.
The Stivers Choir Magnet is an award-winning choral program. The dedicated students in the Stivers Choirs have earned numerous solo and ensemble awards. Members of the Stivers Choirs have collaborated with and been recognized by The University of Dayton’s Vocal Performance Institute, the Dayton Opera Guild, Sinclair Community College Choir, and MUSICA! Graduates of Stivers have been awarded scholarships through The Dayton Opera Guild and the Dayton Music Club. Stivers Choir students have earned scholarships to universities such as Bowling Green, Wright State, University of Kentucky, and Central State University.
Stivers band students play a diverse range of music from traditional band music to jazz. Students have the opportunity to take one-on-one studio lessons with adjunct faculty. There are also master classes with professional musicians during the school year. Band students may participate in various regional and national competitions. Many students have gone to prestigious music camps, such as Interlochen School for the Arts and Berklee School of Music. Graduates have been accepted to prestigious colleges and universities such as Berklee School of Music, Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, and Rose Hulman, among others.
