Our Vision

Our vision for Dunbar Promise Academy incorporates five essentials. They will guide our practice throughout this school year and make every classroom one that everyone would be proud to enroll their child.
 

  • PARENTS ARE OUR PARTNERS
  • TEACHERS ARE LEADERS AND STUDENT ADVOCATES
  • STUDENTS ARE COLLEGE PREPARED – PRE-K THROUGH GRADE 8
  • MUTUAL RESPECT AND ACCOUNTABILITY IS FOSTERED
  • PRIDE IN OUR EFFORTS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS

 
We will work together for the academic, social and emotional growth of our children. Please join us on this journey to “DESTINATION EXCELLENCE”.

Our Mission

We believe that all of our students can learn at high levels. It is our responsibility to provide a safe learning environment that fosters academic excellence, respect for diversity and positive self-esteem. It is our expectation that all staff, students, parents and the community share this responsibility.
 
Our mission:
 
  • Create classrooms that differentiate instruction and maintain high expectations
  • Promote positive home, school and community collaboration
  • Prepare every student with college bound skills starting in Pre-Kindergarten through every level to grade 8
  • Ensure that all of our resources are student focused and support our core curriculum in Literacy, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
  • Prepare students with global skills through the use of technology and opportunities for developing leadership skills.
