    "A public magnet 6th-12th grade school, Durham School of the Arts continues to nurture creativity, intellect, and social justice. Having taught music in the inter-city schools, I can tell you there is something very transforming to students when their artistic gifts are revealed and celebrated. Education should be more than just memorizing facts and numbers or scoring high on achievement tests-it should wholistically challenge a person to draw on his abilities both academically and artistically in order to be socially conscious and intentional for their future. The teachers at DSA are highly talented in their fields, and Principal David Hawks continues to set the bar high for academic excellence. We are so fortunate to have three of our children pass through the halls of DSA."

    "I was a student at Durham School of the Arts from 6th grade through 12th grade. It was an amazing experience. Being introduced to art and being able to work within the art world everyday helped me to become very expressive and the person I am today. Attending this school taught me how to be an excellent leader."
