Our School

ENGAGE. INSPIRE. EMPOWER.

At Dunstan Middle School, we are proud to have a wide variety of exploratory course offerings and a strong staff who encourage students to focus not only on their academic growth but their personal development as well.  Steps are taken every day to:
  1. Make learning relevant for students and include opportunities for them to think deeply about a topic. (ENGAGE) 
  2.  Encourage students to discover what drives them. (INSPIRE) 
  3.  Allow students to better themselves and those around them. (EMPOWER)


The first 30 minutes of every day (7:15a-7:45a), every student is in an Advisement class with a teacher they will have all year long.  During Advisement:

  • Students build relationships with their Advisement (homeroom) teacher.
  • Students learn about what's going on at Dunstan and throughout the community through Patriot TV and announcements (on Mondays).
  • Students participate in community building activities with other students in their Advisement class as well as students throughout the school.
  • Students develop their personal self-advocacy skills by making arrangements ahead of time to travel (on Tuesdays and Thursdays) to their teachers or other school staff members for additional academic, social emotional, or technology support.
  • Students review their grades and test scores to set personal academic goals for themselves. 
  • NEW Students 6th-8th will be involved in targeted learning opportunities during Advisement related to their digital citizenship skills and their social emotional well-being. 
     

Dunstan is proud to have a community that supports and embraces both tradition and innovation and we look forward to continuing to support every student who walks through our doors each and every day.
