Welcome to Dunbarton High School!  Home of the Spartans!

We embrace high expectations for ourselves and others, and our school community supports students in developing their potential and future pathways.  Through our equitable approach to education, community collaborations and connections, we are focused on amplifying our students’ creativity, and leadership skills.  By being culturally responsive and relevant, our staff continue to work together with the goal of creating an environment where all learners will thrive and grow.  Building students’ well-being and academic achievement on a foundation of mutual respect, relationships, and resilience, we are committed to reinforcing the belonging, safety, and success of our diverse students. 


“To teach in a manner that respects and cares for the souls of our students is essential if we are to provide the necessary conditions where learning can most deeply and intimately begin…” (bell hooks, 1994).
