    "I feel that PLDMS offers a wide variety of activities for students while simultaneously challenging them with rigorous coursework. Dunbar excels athletically, musically, artfully, theatrically, academically, technologically.....the list really goes on and on. I love working here and look forward to working with my students every day!"

    "Paul Laurence Dunbar Middle School offers a wealth of opportunities for your student to learn and grow. Students with a variety of talents, will have those talents nurtured. The faculty and staff are dedicated to seeing all students succeed. If you are looking for a school for your middle school student, I highly recommend giving PLDMS strong consideration. You can attend the Student Assignment Open House that is offered in January, and follow the school on Twitter @PLDUNBARMS to find out more."

    "I have been working in education in some capacity for the last 16 years. Here at PLDMS, I have had the opportunity daily to collaborate with some of the hardest working and professional team members. The students at the school are enthusiastic and love to participate in what the school offers; including the after school tutoring programs, clubs, as well as the sports that are offered here. I am fortunate to have found a home here at Paul Laurence Dunbar Middle School, with such outstanding students and staff."

    "As the new principal of Paul Laurence Dunbar MIddle School, I invite any and all interested families to schedule a tour of the campus. Our facilities, student body and program, as well as our staff, are second-to-none. We take great pride in teaching all students, and the complexity of the children we serve is a source of our strength. Reviewers will review, and in a school-choice system, most who choose to speak up have likely moved on within days - limiting their scope and knowledge. I hope any and all prospective students and families call us, speak with me directly, and enjoy the great opportunities at PLDMS."

    "More like a reform school than a middle school. Dunbar is absolutely awful.The school is full of drugs and fights. We did NOT want our child there but thanks to the ridiculous "school choice" program(which gives you really no choice at all) we are stuck with Dunbar. The teachers and administration do not respond to letters/emails and never return phone calls(including the prinicpal). Our child is in AVID and the gifted program so she is somewhat protected from the bullies and the gangs but it is frustrating to not have any communication with staff when there are issues. I' m constantly told Dunbar isn't as bad as it once was but I find it hard to believe. Never have I seen ANY school have a seperate sign out book for children's probation officers or to sign children in/out for COURT! That sums up Dunbar right there and unfortunately those children are taking up the staff's time leaving the involved parents and their non criminal children out in the cold.Had I known last year what I know now I wouldve homeschooled! Lee county has great elemntary schools but after that it's hard going..."
