While attending Dunbar Highschool I’ve had highs and lows. However, the overall experience has been great. As I progressed through high school I developed leadership skills, I gained lots of confidence and I truly grew to love the person I’ve become. Rather it’d be on or off the court, I felt like I gained a piece of knowledge everyday. Coaches and teachers helped me overcome challenges that I once felt I could never get through. They help shape me and mold me and for that I will love them forever.
One thing that I’d want my school to change is that parent involvement. Too many students that are involved in school activities lack engagement from their parents or guardians. I feel that support from parents would ultimately lead to more success from student because they aren’t doing it alone.

Hey my name is Eilah and i'm senior at Dunbar High School. I like alot things about my school like our sports like basketball and football, we win so many games of basketball and football. Also i like our mascot, cheerleaders, dancers, the band, and our fans. I think my experience at Dunbar was okay because i learn a lot of things and new things almost everyday. I read books with my multicultural class. I also learn french and spanish. I learn many things at Dunbar High school. The changes i think they should make are us to come together and come a agreements. I also think that the school hours should change. I think they should some food items, some teachers, and rules that the principle make for the school.
My overall experience at Dunbar High School has been good. Throughout my four years of attending school there, it helped me grow tremendously. The teachers since my freshman year have been outstanding.. from always helping me with my work, giving me extra time to complete my work, and just always being there whenever i need them. I would like to see more of the students engaged in school activities, and the parents more involved as well . Also more accentives for the students that’s doing well in school, just to give the students rewards on their achievements.
