Welcome to Durham School of the Arts
DSA is a School Like No Other
We are quite a unique school, as we offer both a stellar arts curriculum and rigorous academics. We believe that the arts represent a symbolic, universal form of communication and are therefore, fundamental to a quality education.
IN THE NEWS
Our School Beliefs
- Students use various intelligences that must be recognized and nurtured in developmentally appropriate ways
- A safe and secure school climate is an essential precondition for learning
- An atmosphere that fosters independence and exploration is essential for the development of creative thinking
- An environment of encouragement and support to express differing points of view, and the subsequent critical examination of their significance, promote dialogue, respect, and understanding
- On behalf of the entire faculty of DSA, we welcome all of our parents and students to our school community. We look forward to having a wonderful school year!
