William Dunn

History Department Chair

I am a native Washingtonian, with a BA from The College of Wooster in Ohio and an MA in Modern European History from The George Washington University. I teach grade 10 Western Traditions and grade 11 Modern World History, with a focus on philosophy, culture, and formal debate. I came to McLean because of its wonderful reputation for creativity in the classroom and working with students who have a wide range of learning styles. Along with teaching, my passions are politics, travel, and spending time with my family.

K-12 College Preparatory School Supporting Bright Students’ Individual Strengths and Challenges.

McLean School is an independent, co-educational, K-12 day school serving Maryland, Washington, and Virginia. McLean has for over sixty years been helping students realize their full potential by providing a comprehensive college preparatory program that emphasizes small classes and differentiated instruction. We embrace both traditional learners and ones with mild to moderate learning challenges – dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and challenges related to anxiety and executive functioning. Many of our students excel in some areas while benefiting from support in others.
