Whitted School



    The Whitted School opened August 31, 2017. This facility provides a high-quality Pre-K program to Durham County local 4-year-olds which will greatly impact their kindergarten readiness. Priority is given to children living in zones for the following elementary schools:  C.C. Spaulding, Eastway, Fayetteville Street, Lakewood, W.G. Pearson and Y.E. Smith.   If there are any additional spots remaining, any 4-year old in the District may apply to attend.

    This facility incorporates part of the building for affordable senior housing which lends itself to ongoing intergenerational activities.  

    Give your child the gift of kindergarten readiness at the Whitted School!
