There's No Better Place to Learn

For over 100 years, Durant Public Schools has served as the flagship of our community. With a proud history of outstanding achievement, winning both state and national honors in academics, music, and sporting events, Durant ISD is poised to carry on the tradition of excellence. Each of the seven DISD sites is committed to offering current curriculum and digital tools to provide an exceptional educational experience for every student. Students at all sites are excelling under the Oklahoma state testing program. Within the Oklahoma Academic Performance rating system, students in grades 3 thru 8 scored an average of 180 points higher than the state average last year. Durant High School boasts academic accomplishment with thirteen National Merit Scholars in the last fifteen years and nearly 60% of all graduates pursuing higher education. Behind the success of DISD, is the commitment of our award-winning faculty. With over 71% of the faculty holding advanced degrees, teachers demonstrate that high expectations are not just something they teach, but something they live.

Community involvement has been the key to success for Durant Public Schools. Durant’s booming economy has created over 5000 new jobs in the past 10 years making employment growth in Bryan County the highest in the state. With new employment opportunities, come new families and in turn new students for Durant Schools. This recent economic expansion has led Durant Schools to its highest enrollment ever with a population exceeding thirty six hundred students. Durant citizens vote to support school bond issues on a regular basis, which ensures that students are provided with a safe and educationally sound learning environment. Parents, faculty, business members, and volunteers all play active roles in Durant ISD schools.

Whether you search all across the country or just across the state, you will find an undeniable truth at the core of the citizens of Durant. When it comes to education there’s no better place to learn!
