If you could personally visit Durant and meet community members and staff, you would find a tremendous amount of pride regarding this district. The following are just a few of our accomplishments:
Nearly 70% of our classroom instructors hold a Master's or above degree.
Based on Spring 2006 state testing, 95% of our students met state standards in third grade reading and 93% met state standards in math. At the 4th grade level, 91% of students met state standards in reading and 89% met state standards in math. In all state tested areas, district students are consistently scoring above state averages. The ACT composite was 21.1, above the state average of 20.5. In addition, 55% of students taking the advanced placement exams scored high enough to receive college credit.
The Durant High School Band was the only band from Oklahoma invited to Washington DC to perform at the unveiling of the World War II memorial in May 2004. This band consistently earns superior ratings, having won Sweepstakes for 15 consecutive years.
The vocal music program is recognized as one of the best in the state.
Our district offers a comprehensive athletic program that allows both male and female students to develop their talents.
Our character education program, Character Counts, reinforces important personal characteristics, such as responsibility, respect and fairness.
During his second inaugural address, former Governor Frank Keating specifically recognized Durant as one of the outstanding school districts in the state.
In 2001, Durant High School was one of six high schools in the United States to be named a New American High School.
This community and school district are truly unique. There is an unusual degree of pride and excitement in Durant, and I invite you to join us, whether by reading through our website or making a personal visit.
