Duke School offers a one hour guided tour and discussion that is meant to be an overview of Duke School project work and The Project Approach. Tours are led by an administrator and are free of charge. Participants must RSVP one week in advance.   


Tour and Discussion sessions are for educators who

would like an opportunity to see Duke School’s project work firsthand and learn from current teachers and school leaders. This extended experience provides participants a chance to experience a guided tour, a meeting with an administrator, lunch with teachers, and classroom observations. Tour and Discussions are 4 hours and cost $100 per participant. Please RSVP one week in advance.

Tours are temporarily suspended due to the pandemic.

Duke School is an independent preschool through eighth grade project-based school. We inspire learners to boldly and creatively shape their future. Duke School serves as a leading educational institution both within the Triangle and wider educational community.

Students leave Duke School with the ability to think independently and critically. They are prepared to take their place in the global community in which collaboration and strong communication skills are essential. Our students not only master skills of traditional academic disciplines, but they also develop ​a sense of self, community, and culture. Duke School graduates are given the tools to confidently solve many types of problems, focus ​on ​important details, work cooperatively and resolve conflicts. ​

Duke School has worked with Dr. Lilian Katz and Dr. Sylvia Chard, founders of The Project Approach, for more than 20 years, and is designated as an official Project Approach School.
