The student teacher ratio is good although students with learning difficulties usually attend the Hill Center which doubles the tuition. I agree with the parent who says that the administration is weak. Under stronger leaders in the past, the school felt more like a community. The teachers work hard and care about the students and the facilities are better than they were when my children started. The school has improved the physical plant but needs inspired leadership. The students are involved in many things and have parents who want them to excel.
Administrative and Development personnel are weak, but the academic side of the school is excellent. For the best education money can buy, and the best education that can be had in Durham for any price Durham Academy is it. It is however small and insular and perhaps is not he best choice for the entire pre college experience.
