I have a lower school student and she loves going to school every day! The school treats every child with respect and my daughter feels so confident and comfortable at Duchense. Mrs. Montalbano is an amazing principal. She loves the kids and is always available to parents. She know each of the children personally and works the carpool line on many mornings where she greets the children with a huge smile. Academically it is challenging but they make it so fun that the girls don't feel like it is overwhelming! I would highly recommend Duchesne!!!!

As a seventh grader attending Middle School in Duchesne Academy, I must say that my experience is far better than any other school that I have ever attended. Coming to Duchesne as a fifth grader, it was clearly evident that Duchesne values academics above all. Being the best student among my peers in my old schools without breaking a sweat, I did not understand the importance of school and I did not care. However, coming to this school made me realize my long term goals and the importance of education. The learning environment is challenging enough for any student. Though Duchesne is Catholic-based, they will welcome any other religion with open arms. Because of Duchesne, I was able to participate in Duke TIP, and it was a truly amazing experience. Their sports are also fun and competitive, and the Fine Arts were amazing as well. All in all, as long as you don't care about your social status, you will surely have as great of an experience as I had in Duchesne.
