"Where Students Pursue Their Dreams"
By providing a quality education with a focus on college and career readiness, Durant High School will create an empowering environment for students.
Durant High School opened its doors in August 1995. Under the leadership of the first principal, Ron Frost, the school made great academic and athletic gains. Ron Frost was an energetic and enthusiastic leader. Mr. Frost established a strong foundation by presenting a qualified faculty, inspiring students to reach higher, encouraging parents to be active partners in school activities, and requiring the best everyone had to give. He truly believed that this school was a place where students should "pursue their dreams."
This philosophy has been paramount to the success of Durant. Principals, Sherri Sikes (19971999), Joe Perez (1999-2004), Pam Bowden (2004-2019), and Gary Graham (2019-present) have remained committed to Durant's guiding philosophy and have continued to inspire both faculty members and students to "pursue their dreams."
