Excellent school system. They really care for the welfare of our children and work extra to ensure their success. This school only goes up to 6th grade. I will be looking for private middle school and high school if they continue to send the students to Goffstown

Dunbarton Elementary is a small, Kindergarten through sixth grade school with a great school culture of welcoming respect and intellectual inquisitiveness. The staff features experienced and newer teachers that provide a mixture of academic continuity, enthusiasm and energy. The school encourages parent participation in many, often creative ways. Both our girls received great preparation for Middle School and High School at Dunbarton.
