Mission Statement

  • "Dunbar High School’s faculty and staff, in partnership with parents and community members, empower students to achieve high standards for academics, integrity, leadership, and citizenship."

About the School

  • We're one of the largest schools in the state, but parents, students and staff say Paul Laurence Dunbar feels like a small school because of the close relationships. We go to great lengths to ensure that students feel warm and welcome. Dunbar also has a reputation for excellence across a broad range of programs -- not only academics and athletics, but also community service and the performing arts.
