As a school that extends from three-year-old to eighth grade, Duke School offers an unmatched academic and social foundation in which one year builds upon the next. Eighth graders get to lead, role model, and contribute to the community in ways that empower each of them. Project work starts as early as preschool and grows more sophisticated each year. And our small class sizes allow teachers to form close relationships with students and families—and to tailor instruction to the needs and interests of the individual. Best of all about Duke School, our students and families become part of a tight-knit community built around a shared love of learning. And that shared love of learning stays with our students for life.
