AboutEdit

Paul Laurence Dunbar High School is the only historically African-American high school in Dayton. It was created to educate African-American youth and to employ teachers of color. The school originally opened on Summit Street in 1931 and graduated its first class in 1936. In 1962 a new Dunbar high school was opened and the original building was renamed MacFarlane Elementary. MacFarlane later became a middle school, it closed in 2003 and was razed in 2005.[2][3][4]

Dunbar competes in the Dayton City League.
