Dundana School is located in Dundas close to Wentworth Lodge off South St. and Lynden Ave. The school was built in 1953 with six classrooms and a gymnasium. The name Dundana was chosen from an abbreviation of Dundas and Ancaster, because the site of the school was once in the municipality of Ancaster.
The school serves children from JK to Grade 5. The school has an environmental garden and a large playground. Two additions were later made to the building and one of the first JK classes in Wentworth County was opened in 1995 with an enrollment of 24 students.
