Magnet schools promote student diversity because they are open to students outside the normal school district boundaries and often attract high caliber students through competitive programs.

Durham School of the Arts Reviews
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.
I THINK THIS IS A VERY GOOD SCHOOL AND I LOVE IT..............
