Durham Unified School District Reviews

3 reviews
It's a small town, so the schools are small and ratio of kids per class is great. As a senior student now I will have so many good memories of my teachers and friends. The teacher's are really dedicated and committed to their students. I would hardly recommend Durham Unified School District to newcomers. If you have more than 1 child this district is for you. They have the elementary, middle and High school in the same area. Each school has its own entrance with its own office. I know for my mother having 3 kids in school made it so much more easy for her, knowing that if she was running late to pick up my brothers I was her back up.

Great communication. Excellent teachers. Love this school district. My son goes here. Lots of options, Band, art, and sports.
I like the teachers. Most of them want to see you succeed and continue on to college. I hope to see Durham use a different way of spending money that we don't always have that could help the students and faculty as well.
