    "We chose Durham over a spot at another IB school (currently ranked 9 on Great Schools vs. Durham's 3). The school feels like a community from the principal, who is incredibly approachable and involved, to the teachers to the parents. I'm extremely pleased with the academic progress my child has made and, even more importantly, the love she now has for school. Every day I ask her "What was the best thing that happened at school today?" and she can never choose just one thing because she adores her teacher, is learning a ton, and has so much fun in ancillaries learning as well. As someone who has been involved in education reform for the past 12 years, I can be very picky about my child's education. Durham is our #1 choice school."

    "My son started pre-k at Durham this fall. I was very hesitant to make the switch from a very small, private preschool, but he is having an amazing year. His teacher is nothing short of a phenom, Academically, his growth has been insane; he went from knowing his capital letters to trying write in about six weeks. He says phalanges and arachnid and knows the difference between Asian and African elephants. And math has been a huge surprise. He is counting, adding, grouping, and putting numbers together in ways I thought wouldn't happen for a few years. Also, the faculty and staff are incredibly welcoming. They teach, yes, but they also recognize that sometimes you have parades and make cupcakes and stomp around on bear hunts. The other families are great too. Durham rocks. No doubt about it."

    "We are going on our 4th year at Durham. What an amazing school with great teachers and administrators. The school is now one of 5 World IB schools in the district. This is huge! ... Other schools in our area get the attention, but Durham is a best kept secret in the neighborhood! The current principal has big plans for the campus and the PTA does some wonderful things that benifit the school and kids. Don't wait around to get your name on the list to go here....just do it!"

    "Durham is full of caring, smart, and educated teachers. I am at teacher myself there, and see great work being done. I see teaching and learning taking place that is very similar/compatible to "top ranked" Houston elementary schools I have visited. If our ranking is lower because we service lower income students and ones that have a high mobility rate, that should not be counted against us. Look at the GROWTH in the students. It's high. The relationship/mentorship some of these teachers have with these students is humbling. And with being a new IB World School and having a supportive admin team, there are some great programs/plans for our future."

    "Durham is a small town school in a big city. It is a rare gem with administrators who care!"
