About the School

Mission Statement

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

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.
