Congratulations Class of 2019!


Congratulations to the Durham Public Schools Class of 2019. We are proud of each of our more than 2,200 graduates who will be walking across the stage this week ready to embark on the next step of their lives – whether it is college, the military or a career.

Many of our seniors are leaving us with college credit tucked firmly under their belts, including 26 Middle College High School students who graduated high school with an associate’s degree.  Members of the class of 2019 received prestigious scholarships including Morehead-Cain, Park, and Coca-Cola, and earned an impressive $76 million in total scholarships offered.

We are equally proud of our students who are entering the workforce and the military – we know you are all graduating with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to succeed.
