North Dayton Hosts Trotwood Chamber Community Leadership Breakfast
Sep 19, 2014 7:00AM - 9:00AM@North Dayton School of Discovery

As a community and business leader, we hope you can join over 60 other area leaders in enjoying a free breakfast and great information from one of the best and highest rated K-8 schools in the area - the North Dayton School of Discovery (NDSD). According to the Ohio Department of Education, NDSD had a 133 percent overall average annual academic growth rate last year, one of the highest in Dayton, as well as, one of the top five reading proficient ratings among all K-8 schools in the greater Dayton region. We have less than 30 seats available for this current school year, and we would love to help you secure one of these few remaining spots for your special and gifted child. With NDSD, you can have "a private school education without any of the private school costs"!
