The Dunham School Reviews

I have been raised at the Dunham School because I started going to this school when I was in kindergarten. Dunham has prepared me academically, spiritually, and socially for the world that is in front of me. Dunham has been a large and important part in developing the person that I am today. I have made life-long friends at this school. I have developed a relationship with Christ at this school. I have excelled academically thanks to the wonderful faculty at this school. At Dunham, the teachers are different than those at other schools. Our teachers genuinely care about our well being, and I feel comfortable going to talk to them about anything, whether it be about my grade or my life in general. Dunham has always been a special place to me.

As a family we have experienced Lower, Middle, and now Upper School. The opportunities have been amazing in academics, athletics, and the arts. We have experienced wonderful things like the Lower School principal greeting our child by name while opening the door at carpool, the Fine Arts Director knowing our child's talents and encouraging her to tryout for the musical, the PE teacher seeing potential and suggesting a sport, and teacher after teacher encouraging, teaching to my child (not a test), inquiring about their Dunham experience, and praying for my child. With a PhD in Educational Leadership and Research I was searching for cutting edge education for my children. I found it at Dunham.
The DUNHAM School is preparing their students to be leaders in our world. The faculty, staff, are students all exemplify excellence in all that they endeavor. The impact of the education one receives at DUNHAM will have an enormous impact on their future!
