    This school is not very organized and trying to contact a tecaher is nearly impossible. They have no website or emails to get in contact with teachers. The principal is a very understanding man.

    Dunbar High School has always maintained a commitment to its students. As a graduate of Dunbar I have nothing but rave reviews about the quality of education and love I received. I'm trilled to mention that in SY07-08 my son will join the ranks of Dunbar and will be the 3rd generation of my family to attend this prestigious school.
