Dunedin High Fundamental SWAS provides Pinellas County families an additional high school fundamental location. Fundamental schools are schools of choice and emphasize principles that set them apart from non fundamental schools. The Dunedin High Fundamental SWAS environment provides for those who work best where expectations are clearly defined. A strong emphasis is placed on the home and school working together to promote successful learning.
Dunedin High Fundamental SWAS provides a quiet, well disciplined and structured learning environment. The fundamental guidelines, school rules and policies are strictly enforced during every school day, during extracurricular activities up to and including the last day of school. A competitive spirit exists within the framework of mutual respect, cooperation and regard for the rights and property of others. Dunedin High Fundamental SWAS takes great pride in maintaining a safe learning environment for your child. We believe in setting high expectations for all of our students. It is because we closely monitor student behavior that we are able to maintain a successful learning community. We ask for your support by realizing that children will make poor choices from time to time. These poor choices may result in a child earning a demerit, detention, suspension or in rare cases being recommended for dismissal from our program. It is our expectation that all parents and teachers work together in a consistent and productive manner to promote accountability for our students. Parents choose Dunedin High Fundamental SWAS for many reasons, one being the type of learning environment that exists. Your support of our program and its guidelines only increases the likelihood that your child will experience many successes while being a student at Dunedin High Fundamental SWAS.
The mission of the Dunedin High Fundamental SWAS community is to educate students to be productive in a global society by providing skills and knowledge for the 21st century.
