Dunsmore is a dream come true for our family. When we moved to the area we took my son out of private school and decided that we would give public school a try. I am so glad we did. Mrs. Stegman is a fantastic principal that has the respect of the students, parents and her teachers. She runs a tight ...  Read more

I love the school and its approach to education. Within all the budget cuts they try their best to keep it up to the standards. Teachers and administration are really nice and open, and ready to adjust. The only downside - some parents are very conservative!

It's concerning that the current principal is implementing an inordinate amount of rules. The children are no longer allowed to sit with their friends at lunch, sit on the grass, play for longer than 25 seconds on the monkey bars, freely get and play with balls on the playground and the list goes on ...  Read more

2 of my 3 children went to Dunsmore. One is currently finishing 6th grade. This school has a lot of parent involvement. It is a safe, clean and comfortable school.

All three of my children attended this school k-6th and I must say they were better prepared for futher education than others in their jr. high class. The principal has a long way to come and I am sure everyone misses Mr. Gould but the excellent teachers make up for it.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
