In July of 1951, a contract was signed to remodel and construct additional build-
ings. By successive approval from Harrisburg, S940,000 was granted for use in the
construction. The actual ground-breaking took place in February of 1954. Completion,
except for the finishing touches, came in May 1955.
Again, as you let your eyes wander over this magnificent school, be grateful to
those who paved the way and made it possible.

Gazing at our modern, well-equipped school, we must realize it wasn't always so!
This fine structure We are so fortunate to attend had its humble beginnings in 1852
when it was known as the Dayton Union Academy. Located near the residence of Dr.
M. E. Garner, its last class was held in 1905, when the students transferred to the
Dayton Normal Institute. The Academy's purposes were to prepare for teaching,
college entrance, and life experiences. At that time, the students also attended the
Glade Run Academy, which still stands and is used for social affairs at the Glade Run
In 1886 an orphansl school was built where today's high school now stands. The
building used u11til recently as the shop, was the shoe shop of the Soldiers Orphan
School. The other buildings were burned in 1888.
Dayton Normal Institute, which was founded in 1905, consisted of three buildings,
one of which is presently in use. In 1917 the school was changed to a vocational high
school and operated as such until 1946. On July 11, 1946, Dayton Borough and Wayne
Township formed a joint school district and it was changed to a six-year Junior-Senior
high school. This same year C, W. Marshall was elected Supervising Principal of this
Dayton-Wayne Joint School District. After Boggs Township entered in 1948, the dis-
trict became known as Dayton Joint, The eastern half of Redbank Township joined
the system in 1950, with Pine, West Mahoning, and Smicksburg Borough becoming
members in 1952. Each district is represented by one member on various committees.
