Paul Laurence Dunbar High Principal's Memo



 To prepare our students for college and professional careers by exposing them and guiding them through a challenging and rigorous curriculum.


To be a premier college preparatory high school that develops and empowers critical and creative thinkers for the 21st Century by providing students a comprehensive foundation in mathematics, science and technology through a rigorous curriculum.


Our Mission: To be the best Health Professions High School in the Country!

Our objectives this year: To improve GPA, increase college readiness and increase attendance.



Happy Monday Paul Laurence Dunbar Community,

We are just one week away from our much-anticipated spring break!  However, before we go, we have a few loose ends that we need to tie up!  This week we will have our final Senior Session of our High School Assessments.  Although we are down to the bare minimum for students required to take the HSAs and our team with our students have done a great job of completing the HSA requirements thus far, we still have about 10-20 students in each session that could benefit from taking this April Seniors only administration seriously.   If you are wondering if your senior is one who still needs to test, please check with your guidance counselor.  We will be testing Algebra this morning, Biology tomorrow and English on Wednesday.  


Happy Monday and have a great week!




Principal Kyles
