    Dunbar is better now with the new turnaround plans. My son has been there for 2 years and he is happy and that's what counts.

    This school is HORRIBLE. I would not recommend anyone to it. It contains violence and doesn't reach the right levels of academic criteria. The least I can say about the school is the word horrible.

  • (9 years ago)

    While I wouldn't say the school is the worst in the district it has suffered much and is in need of a very strong principal who may have to be more 'Joe Clark' than 'candy Man' And yes it should be a man and a woman and not 2 women at the highest administrative positions. It is not that a woman is not capable but the student body makeup is such that you need both male and female leaders present.
