Welcome to Kindergarten!
Durham Public Schools (DPS) welcomes you and your child to a wonderful school experience! Your child's education begins with their Kindergarten year - a year that is filled with new and exciting experiences for children and their families.
DPS offers choice for families interested in a variety of instructional approaches, ensures the safety of every child, and focuses on high student achievement to fully prepare your child for success in life.
