Durham School of the Arts Reviews

By , a Parent on

I love this school! My son attended grades 6 - 12 and graduated in 2008.  His first love is music and at DSA he was surrounded by music: he was a member of an award winning choral, he had piano lessons daily, he participated in several musical plays and he made lasting friends who shared his passion.  In addition, there was a requirement that he take classes in the other arts as well, i.e. painting, sculture, dance, etc.  

Durham School of the Arts prepares students for the world of fine arts.
