We believe that...
Learning is built on quality instruction and the active participation of learners.
We will cultivate self-motivated learners. Challenging instruction will encourage children to explore their world and develop multiple solutions for complex problems.
Children are complex human beings.
We will provide a variety of ways for children to express themselves. We will strive to support the development of the "whole child." Cultivating citizenship, responsibility, and collaboration are vital school functions.
Successful schools build strong, collaborative community school partnerships.
We will nurture family and community involvement.
Children's learning strengths vary.
We will offer rich, integrated learning experiences that incorporate a variety of modalities and practices. Instruction will address different learning skill, levels, and styles in an effort to reach all students.
Children learn best when basic human needs are fulfilled.
We know and love children. We will make sure that children's achievements are recognized and they feel safe, fed, successful, respected, and ready to learn on a daily basis.
Dunbar Elementary empowers students to succeed!
Staff, parents, and community members collaborate around an energized school mission that supports achievement by every student. Teachers work together on designing sound instruction. Dedicated volunteers perform important tasks, and an active PTO works to support the goals of the school as well as the parents.
Dunbar Elementary is a caring, student-centered, community-supported school.
When you walk through our doors and into classrooms, you will feel it! Our size, reduced numbers of students in classrooms, and committed staff ensure that every student is a priority. Through challenging curriculum, enrichment opportunities, a comprehensive student intervention process, and tutorial support, your child's individual needs will be met. Ask students, parents, or staff about what makes Dunbar a Learning Community Like None Other!
