The new principal has made a world of difference! He is positive, available, has a great demeanor with the kids. The teachers are loving and invested and the kids are happy to be there. They are learning so much! Durham is now a top choice school. I had been concerned after hearing the feedback about the previous principal but they chose the perfect person for the job now! Amazing how much strong leadership can do for a school.

The new principal at this school is a poser and a joke. She never really is into the best for the kids. Additionally she needs training in diversity. At this school, only white kids excel and the kids of ethnic group do not? I wonder why that is when the same group can excel at other schools in the same area.

This school has taught my daughter so much! She got commended on every one of her tests. This school will teach your kid so much. The teachers there are so funny and entertaining.

CISD has experienced some tought financial times over the past few years, but this school continues to offer great programs for the kids. The teachers are great!

Durham has struggled with leadership changes and rotating faculty, but there are many outstanding teachers here. Some of the class sizes are large compared to elementary. Students change classes independently, but stay with same team of teachers in part to help teachers identify and work with struggling students. The school recently added more science lab teachers because students weren't doing as well on tests. Art and music (apart from band) are mediocre and there's no Spanish except an after-school class taught by the elementary school's former Spanish teacher.
