Dunn's middle school offers 6th - 8th grade students an extraordinarily engaging and hands-on academic program. Our enthusiastic teachers and motivated students prove each day that challenging academics can also be lots of fun.
In friendly and nurturing classes, students develop their problem solving skills, undertake long and short-term projects, work in teams, and participate in workshop-style lessons. Each subject is taught by a teacher who specializes in that field.
In history classes and language arts, students learn the crafts of the historian and the writer from the inside out through reenactments, role playing and storytelling. Math classes regularly relate problems to real life experience, thereby teaching students how to apply what they have learned in addition to knowing fundamental skills. In science classes students frequently design and conduct their own experiments, thus gaining a true sense of what scientists actually do.
In our intimate community, festivals bring everyone together and give students a way to show what they've learned. Favorite festivals include the East Meets West Festival, Mythology Festival, Science Fair, Astronomy Night, Math Olympics, and Greek Festival.
