About Dunn School
The Dunn School is dedicated to educating the whole student for a lifetime of learning and growth beyond the classroom. The School recognizes that not all learning happens within the confines of a traditional classroom and is therefore committed to engaging students in a variety of different educational environments.
The Outdoor Education Program is a central aspect of a Dunn School education. As of 2018, successful participation in at least one outdoor education trip each year is a graduation requirement for all students. These trips are designed to help students integrate classroom learning into the outside world, foster a sense of place, and facilitate the development of leadership skills all while enjoying the outdoors.
