The greatest poem ever known
is one all poets have outgrown:
The poetry, innate, untold,
of being only four years old.
- Christopher Morley, "To a Child"

Duke Memorial Weekday School is in session from September through May. School hours are from 9 a.m. until 12 noon, except kindergarten, which operates from 9 a.m. until 12:50 p.m.
Our curriculum reinforces hands-on activities that are developmentally geared and individually appropriate. The planned daily schedule balances indoor and outdoor activities, quiet and active time, periods when individual children choose their own activities, and child-initiated and adult-initiated activities.
