Durham High School - Home of the Trojans!
Hello Durham High School students and parents. Welcome back to school. High school staff look forward to beginning the 2023-24 school year. High school is an exciting time, and here at Durham we are committed to helping you fulfill your potential. We believe that academics are incredibly important, as well as participation in other programs. Some to keep in mind are:
● Career Technical (CTE) classes not only help develop career skills, but also leadership and possible opportunities to compete at the local, regional and state level with other students.
● Music performance and the visual arts are important for aesthetics, critical thinking, and potential career opportunities.
● Sports programs offer students the opportunity to work as a team, develop technical skills, leadership, and the challenges of competition.
● Associated Student Body (ASB) gives students the opportunity to learn how the school works and be part of the decision-making process.
● Dual enrollment courses have the potential to earn college and school credit. Schedule an appointment with the counselor to learn more.
