Students often say they "learned how to learn" at Dunn Middle School.

These vital "middle" years are the foundation for your child's academic future. In our attentive environment, Dunn teachers ensure that all students master the study skills and productive habits that will carry them through high school, college, and beyond.

Each middle schooler embraces accountability by learning to organize their own homework and maintain a weekly academic planner. Students learn how to ask an adult for help, manage their time, study for tests, approach long-term projects, take notes, work in a group, and present their projects in clear and polished ways.

For students who have a learning difference or need academic support, Dunn's nationally-regarded Learning Strategies Program is available at the Middle School (for an additional fee). Support is provided by an experienced learning specialist in a small group setting. The classes emphasize organizational skills and study skills that best help students meet with greater academic success.

Teachers will spend extra time after class to really help you understand something. I never had that at my other school.
