Teachers choose Duke School for its progressive mission and collegial environment. As a national leader in child-centered, project-based learning, Duke School offers a number of professional advantages.

The Duke School community is diverse in racial and ethnic identities, religion, sexual orientation, gender, and socioeconomic status. Our students and teachers come from all parts of the world, the country, and North Carolina. We recognize the importance of and have worked to increase diversity in all levels of decision-making throughout our school community. We strive to create an equitable and inclusive community respectful of individual differences. We highly encourage people of color, LGBTQ+ people, and individuals with other underrepresented backgrounds to apply. 

Beginning in 2022, we are proud to launch our Duke School Teaching Fellowship Program. Our Fellowship program will serve as an extension of our mission in connecting students to the community and the material they are learning by enabling them to see themselves reflected in the makeup of faculty and staff, helping ensure success among groups that have been traditionally underrepresented on campus.
