Duncan is a wonderful high school with a wide variety of people and cultures. The students are friendly and the school is small which creates a home like atmosphere. I highly recommend parents to have their children attend Duncan! Go Stallions!

I'm a 2008 graduate, this school was the best decision I made instead of going to my home school Mclane high school. There so much to say about this school. Duncan may be small or have no sport but it had great vocational programs. I myself was enrolled in the construction deparment for two year till graduation, I had a great time competing in skillsUSA using the skill obtained in my ROP class. These skills came great use during my participation in Mesa engineering and scientific base competitions. Other pathway which innclude technological- (computer science, automotive and construction ) medical, business, agriculture and public service. These five pathway each offer students the opportunity to explore careers through real hands on experience earning them college credits and great job experiences in that field. The school has so much to offer, like I said before Duncan is a small school but we were like family. Everyone knew everyone. Fights weren't an issue. Sports were available but Tue school held class competitions between the different grades levels in physical activities and at the end of the year the point are total up and Tue winner are awardes a spirit banner and hinged up in the cafeteria. Expectations were high for everyone, if u could not keep up to them you were booted out and transferred to ur home school. Dress was really enforced compared to any other school. Even after I graduated I came back to tutor the Avid student for almost two years. That school is Tue best Fresno high school available and a great choice. One thing that still gets me a good laugh is that Duncan is not known by it name very well by others but if I say the school where the geeks go then they say "ooh yea that school." Hahaha great time and great people that care.

This is an amazing school! not much in the sports, they say, but thats because this is a high school that focuses on agricautural and medical sciences, not a high school for the common basket ball thug!

This is a good school! But there should really be a sports and music department.

Standards are high as are expectations. After school time with teachers is limited because students need to travel some distance to attend. Very strong vocational education program
