Athletic Department Philosophy

  • We believe that all athletic personnel should strive to teach the basic principle of an attitude toward leadership, competitiveness, fair play, self-discipline and the responsibility for adult living.

    We further believe that a pursuit of these personal and group goals are vital to the perpetuation of a healthy democratic society.

    Durham School of the Arts adheres to the rules and regulations of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) supplemented by state and the Durham Public Schools policies that create an environment that promotes sportsmanship and strong educational priorities.
