I saw a notice for a community meeting on Wednesday evening being sponsored by the Peachtree Gateway Council on Schools on DeKalb Commissioner Nancy Jester’s Facebook Page. The meeting’s purpose is to discuss issues that affect the Dunwoody community specifically and is intended for Dunwoody parent leadership inside the local schools. There are lots of interesting comments on Nancy’s page regarding the planned classroom addition at Dunwoody without adequate resources (expanded lunch room, band room, gym space and other ancillary needs besides just classrooms that students will need) vs the idea of a new Doraville area high school that might reduce the attendance zone of Dunwoody therefore reducing the total attendance.

In case you don’t remember, back on 2016 the school system vetted various options for District-wide feedback and our local Peachtree Middle School Foundation and Dunwoody High School Council both pressed hard for the additions at Dunwoody & Peachtree Middle School to reduce the overcrowding issues in the cluster as well assure that the cluster remains intact.

If you are interested in what’s going on with the plans for the additions to Peachtree Middle School & Dunwoody High School – please go to the Peachtree Gateway Council on Schools meeting on Wednesday where Mr. Dan Drake, DeKalb County School District COO will be presenting.
