Ninth Grade

Picture

The Ninth Grade Academy provides a rich, responsive and well-rounded educational experience for students transitioning from eighth grade to succeed in ninth grade and beyond. The academy offers personalized instruction which ensures that students have meaningful reasons to come to school. They also experience energetic learning to work toward individual and shared goals for future studies and work.


Solid connections to adults and clear expectations about all facets of schooling create and maintain the high quality learning environment of the successful academy. During the course of the year, all students will have the opportunity to take English, Math, Science, Social Studies, JROTC Leadership, World Languages, Technology & Elective classes.


Dunbar also offers opportunities for extra help after school if needed. Additionally, Dunbar provides a mandatory "coach" class for students who fall behind in one of their core subjects to ensure no student gets off track. If a student falls off track, steps are taken to ensure assistance needed to succeed through peer tutoring, teacher directed coaching, as well as an array of targeted supports designed to accelerate academic progress.
