Paul Laurence Dunbar is a very large school. We have over 2,000 students so it can get pretty crowded during class change. PLD is a public school, so most students that attend are from the surrounding area. This consists of a wide range of students. We have very well to do students as well as low income students. There are students that are first generation Americans and students that only know America has their home. This large amount of diversity of culture at my school makes the students more excepting of one another. Students from many different groups can get together and have lunch with one another, showing how students at PLD do not discriminate against anyone.

Some students at my school are also part of the Math Science and Technology Center. This is a very rigorous academic program that aims toward students who want to go into the sciences as a profession. This program offers amazing opportunities such as being able to participate in research at the University of Kentucky, and being allowed to take as many AP classes as they would like.

Everyone as PLD works incredible lengths to get to where they are today. They have formed a very welcoming environment, making me proud to call myself a bulldog!

Good and bad as with everywhere. There certainly are a great bunch of responsible, smart , well-behaved kids there, but also some that drink and use drugs. A student will attend based on their district, but it helps to have a great attitude and desire to excel.
