Dunbar High School has been very welcoming and friendly to diverse student like myself. Since the beginning of the school year they have accepted me as their own. They've listened to me and talked to me as well and above all they have embraced me. They are always eager and excited to hear my story about me and my home country rather than ignore me because of who i am and where i am from. Teachers' hard work and passion to teach, have amazed me and encouraged me to be a better student. Even though some students are somewhat troublesome, yet they respect others for who they are and treat them as their companions to all who deserves. For many, accepting diversity is uncomfortable but at Dunbar High School they kindly welcome diversity with pleasure!

In the past 3 years and 1 month, I know I have grown due to attending Dunbar High School. The truth is, at first, I did want to transfer school, but only because I judged the book by its cover. As time went by, my eyes opened, my understanding strengthened and my knowledge grew. There are some great administrators, staff, and teachers while you can make nice friends with the students as well. With Dunbar High School being the center of a grand African-American community, there are two characteristics that may describe the environment: unity and perseverance. These are things that are happening and should improve. Meetings and assemblies with all of Dunbar High School parents, students and staff would really create a firm foundation. They would be moments for parents and students to meet the administration and staff effectively, and the other way around as well.
What i liked about Dunbar High School is that you are able to build a relationship with your teahcers. They are trustworthy as well as extremely reliable. If any student is having trouble academically tutoring will be provided for the students better understanding. Dunbar High School' s faculty is ready everyday to help with each students needs. Mentors are well trained and ready to help students succeed through the year as well as helping them prepare for college and life after graduation. During my two years that I attended Dunbar High School I can say that the the school helped keep me on track, the faculty and staff were always there by every step I could and was unable to take to help me keep going.
