This school has a great teaching staff - for the most part they are very committed and involved - we have several very exceptional teachers! The opportunities for student involvement are great.

I am proud to say that I am a graduate from Paul Laurence Dunbar High. This school opened several doors for me allowed me to achieve in areas where it did not seem possible. The faculty and staff interact with the students and are there for students if they need them. Students are labled- which allows children to feel proud about who they are and their preferences. One should expect to be challenged in the classroom. I can say that everyone whom I have ever encountered who has attended or is currently enrolled has pride in PLDHS. Props to my former school, teachers and staff. Continue doing an excellent job*:)

I attended Dunbar from 1996-2006, and my youngest brother is now a freshman at Dunbar. The quality of education at Dunbar is excellent; students are challenged both academically and extracurricularly to excel.

I graduated from Paul Laurence Dunbar in 2004 as a member of the MSTC program. I am currently at Stanford University. Many of the students in my class attended the top universities in the nation, and I really attribute it to the great MSTC program, and Dunbar in general.

You will recieve a great education at Paul Laurence Dunbar H.S., but they are very strict with rules. Like being are suspended for having to many tardies. They also have very friendly teachers.

I had two children at this school. Both graduated and went to Washington University in St Louis. Both have done extremely well there and the eldest is at law School in Washington DC. My children went through private schools until they went to Dunbar and I found this school to be exceptional.
