Dorm life for high school kids

. April 26, 2013.

Who said dorm rooms are just for college students? Maumee Valley Country Day School, which had its highest enrollment in over 20 years in 2013, is opening an onsite residence hall to provide an independent school experience for families outside of the greater Toledo area, for children of alumni who no longer live in Toledo, and for the school's growing international student program. The Dayal House, named after the family whose generous donation built the hall, will be situated on the east side of the school's spacious, wooded 75-acre campus and will include a large commons area to serve all upper school students grades 9 through 12. The new facility will be open for the 2013-2014 school year and promises to bring some expanded opportunities for Maumee Valley Country Day Students. “We are excited to be able to support the school and this project,” said the Dayal family in a statement. “The Dayal House will provide a wonderful opportunity for students, both domestic and international, to receive a Maumee Valley education, thereby maximizing their college options.” Maumee Valley Country Day School, 1715 S.
