    "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."

    "i attended dunbar for the remaining quarter of the 2009-10 school year. in my opinion the school is the worst i have ever attended.first off the teachers barely payed atention to any of the students. this wasnt a problem to me considering i felt i was doing work on a 4th grade level, im pretty sure i know what syllabels are? the school is pretty dirty and the floors are very much scratched up. over all dunbar high is not a good place to learn. i am a white male and i also felt i didnt fit in at all due to the cold treatement of the students; i was looked at like i had 10 heads solely for the fact that i was white and didnt sag my pants or know what made up words meant like "nekid" or "swoll""
