Our school’s philosophy revolves around the healthy development of
the whole child: socially, emotionally, and academically. The faculty and
staff strive to create and maintain a productive and positive learning
environment while maximizing teaching potential and student achievement.
Teachers work hard to make learning interesting and challenging by actively
engaging their students in the learning process.
We make concerted efforts not to extinguish students’ inquisitiveness and
curiosity. Instead, our students leave Paul L. Dunbar with a well-developed love
of learning and an appreciation for the learning process that will remain with them
throughout their lives.
We are proud to have partnerships with our community and parents. As a
result, students will feel that while attending school they are an integral part of
the community and will realize the value of community and shared leadership and
