Our School

The staff of Dunbar School maintains high expectations in the classroom and around the campus. We are a community of independent learners that promote academic excellence. We cannot afford to lower the bar.  Our students must be able to compete not just with students in East St. Louis or Illinois, our students must be able to compete with students across the globe.

School Mission Statement:  

The mission of Paul Laurence Dunbar Elementary School  is to provide an environment where children are treasured, prepare our students to become independent learners  equipped to think effectively, and teach students to anticipate new learning experiences while feeling confident in their ability to be productive in a changing society.
