Welcome to Durham Intermediate School

Durham Intermediate School is a 6-8 grade school with approximately 250 student in attendance. The Durham School District is nestled among a beautiful area just South of Chico amongst farmland, ranchettes, and neighborhoods.

The staff at Durham Intermediate School are dedicated to serving the students and families of Durham. We want all students to be successful and do so by delivering effective instruction and using effective instructional strategies to ensure learning happens. It is our mission to prepare students to be confident and empowered to move into high school and beyond.

Durham Intermediate School offers standards driven curriculum and engaging classrooms. The learning environment is appropriate for all students. Students can take part in classes such as Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, and an Elective class. Durham Intermediate School also offers 6-8th grade girls and boys basketball during the winter months. When visiting the Durham Intermediate School Campus, it is evident of the pride that the students and families take in our little school.

Durham Intermediate School’s Parent Teacher Student Group (PTS) is a huge part of the success of our school. They raise money to be spent on technology and other needs of the students, and because of that, we are working towards one to one chromebooks for our students. I would like to thank the PTS for their continued support and look forward to working with them.

Although this is my first year at Durham Intermediate School, I know the school community well. I grew up in Durham and am a graduate of Durham High School. I want to thank this wonderful community for the warm welcome back and I am looking forward to a great school year.
