• Durham School of the Arts (DSA) is a magnet school founded on the premise of providing our students with an education focused on excellence in the visual and performing arts and rigorous academics. We believe that since our students are both participants and consumers of the arts, they will be better educated and more informed citizens. As a result, we expect our students to be the leaders and intellectuals of tomorrow.

     Our mission is to help students from diverse backgrounds to fully realize their individual academic and creative capacities through a rigorous education program emphasizing visual and performing arts.
