About Dunn School
The Dunn School community educates whole students to their fullest potential in preparation for a life of learning and responsible leadership in society. The school recognizes that not all learning happens within the confines of a traditional classroom and is 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 ignite an interest in the outdoors, develop a sense of stewardship towards the natural world, and build meaningful relationships amongst students and members of the professional community.
