    "To say Dunn has very little ethnic and socioeconomic diversity is clearly a misrepresentation by an a parent who is angry about the closing of Moore. Dunn has students from close to forty different countries and while there are some very affluent students, there is greater socioeconomic diversity than in most of the elementary schools in Fort Collins. Dunn is certainly not without its flaws, but overall, it is an outstanding environment for children to learn and grow."

    "Dunn is a great school for children who fit in, but doesn't cultivate an environment that celebrates difference (diversity, yes, but not difference)."

    "Of course Moore scores well on all standardized tests. Of course their rating is 'excellent.' The boundary lines within the Poudre School District make sure only the richest and whitest attend Dunn Elementary. I find it disheartening that this school can have 76% caucasian students while schools just 8 blocks north of it have upwards of 76% HISPANIC students. This school may fare well in education, but there is very little ethnic or socio-economic diversity."

    "I think Dunn is a wonderful school but the reviewer addressing the issue of over involvement is absolutely correct. As parents we need to do what we can to help our schools find the right balance between creating an inclusive environment (for parents) and supportive environment (for children and teachers)while giving professional educators the freedom they need to teach. Every class at Dunn is different and this individual shares his/her experience. I observe incredible kindess at Dunn but I've also observed tremendous pettiness from this very element of the community mentioned below. Readers should note the reviewer has given great compliments to this school and I concur. Every school has positive/ negative attributes and parents should weigh both when considering any school. Perhaps the reviewer should have noted the school's need to reach out to the working parent as well as they are a growing contingent of every community"

    "Anyone who has had experiences with public schools in other communities will know immediately that Dunn (and the Poudre school district in general), is truly excellent. The school's environment is one of caring and consideration, the IB curriculum is a wonderful layer of enrichment. While there could be a lot more science, and the 'specials' tend to be mediocre, your child will receive a very good education that serves them well in the next phase of schooling. It is unfortunate that another reviewer here seemed to feel that the parents were 'overeducated' and 'cliquish.' Personally, I love the fact that my children are surrounded by adults who are well educated and have time to contribute to the school. It really is a village educating the children at Dunn, and I've never seen that village be anything but inclusive and welcoming."
