I had had a meeting with Ms. Sheard she's over ESE her standards she held in this meeting was unbelievable. I called Ms. Taylor to make a complaint I will be attending to this situation after mlk holiday.

I think the people who complain about dunbar are either too caught up in the poor neighborhood or is not there to learn. fights happen in any school, heck stuff happen in schools in good areas. Instead of talking bad about the school you need to find a school where you are comfortable, there are students lining up to get into the STEM program there and its not fair to be there and be unhappy when you could be making that space available for someone else.

As a student, i personaly dont like Dunbar at all. I feel like The teachers find favorites and only help them the remainder of the year. Im looking forward to switching.. i do not feel safe there was a fight where 5 people got arrested last quarter, and that worries me. The school is a bad school overall and i feel bad for the principle for running such aterrible school

I went to Dunbar my freshman year and truthfully it isn't as bad as people say it is. It get's a bad rap because of the area (The Dunbar area of Fort Myers) but it is truthfully a good school . The tech department is above and beyond, the teachers are nice and friendly, the Army JROTC unit is amazing and everything is pretty good. I miss the school and all it offered me.

This school is great in terms of the Academy for Technology Excellence, but the teachers couldn't be worse. The whole school is always focused on the "AVID" program, and all curriculum has been shaped to the program, even though only 30% of students are enrolled in the program. Also, this school focuses on college level work My son doesn't want to go to college, so this just impairs his success. It seems only fitting that college level work be given only in college, so this is not a good thing! On a more positive note, the Academy for Technology Excellence (ATE) is the best career education program I've EVER seen. The school has done very good with it. That is reason enough to attend this school.
