Welcome to the Home of the Scottish Highlander Band Program
at Dunedin High School!

    Dunedin High School is located in Dunedin, Florida, and was first opened in 1961.  The school embraced the Scottish heritage of the city, and became widely known for having an outstanding performing arts program that incorporated the Scottish Arts.  Today, this Pinellas County school proudly upholds the tradition of excellence established over 50 years ago.  The Instrumental Music Department at DHS has expanded to include a jazz ensemble, percussion ensemble, and a concert orchestra in addition to the symphonic wind bands, pipe bands, and iconic Scottish Highlander Marching Band.
