The academic program at Dunn School is rigorous and challenging, designed to provide the intellectual foundations for students preparing for the challenges they will face.
But despite the focus on academics, ask any student at Dunn and they'll tell you, "My teachers pushed me, but they were incredibly accessible and supportive." It's this balanced combination of challenge and care that develops Dunn students into self-motivated and confident learners.
Dunn's teaching philosophy values experiential approaches to teaching and learning. Faculty are encouraged to employ project-based, problem-driven assignments in their classes to engage students in hands-on learning experiences. Students are also encouraged to participate in a wide variety of electives and co-currcuricular activities to round out their learning.
This is the kind of education that every child deserves.
