Welcome to Durham Elementary School!

Minimum Day December 22nd release time, 12:45 ~ Winter Break 12/25/17 - 1/5/18 ~ Happy Holidays To Everyone!


    Durham Elementary School is a Kindergarten through 5th grade school. We are the proud recipients of a 2014 California Distinguished School award.  The two signature practices that we highlighted in our application were our reading intervention groups and our great core of volunteers: parents, community members, high school tutors and others.

    Starting in 2012-2013 we have a Transitional Kindergarten class, which so far has been a TK/K combination class.  We currently have 438 students, with an average class size of 22 in the kindergarten through third grades and and average class size of 30 for fourth and fifth grades.  We have a wonderful staff in a close knit community with very supportive families and community members.

    We are fortunate to have paraprofessionals that assist with reading interventions, a full time physical education teacher and a half time visual and performing arts teacher. In addition, fifth graders are able to participate in band, choosing a musical instrument and receiving instruction by the award winning high school music teacher.

    The Durham Park and Recreation offers after school child care.
