Welcome to Durant Middle School

I am honored to be serving as Principal at Durant Middle School. We have a staff that is not only very strong in their individual academic area, but they also have a heart that is willing to do whatever it takes to provide your student with the highest quality of education possible. To achieve this goal, expectations are high and parental involvement and support are critical. I ask that you use the links above to access your student's Brainhoney account and the Parent Portal. These logins will provide your student's school information. Available to you on a daily basis are grades, attendance, class schedule and scores on assessments taken at the end of each school year. Hopefully this tool will be useful for monitoring your child's progress.

At Durant Middle School, we believe that communication is a crucial element in the success of every student. We welcome your feedback and are available to partner with you in an effort to achieve this goal.

Welcome to Durant Vision Academy


Welcome to Durant Public Schools Vision Academy. The school is founded on the belief that every student can learn and succeed when provided with a learning environment that meets their individual needs and interests.

The mission of the Vision Academy is to provide students who have dropped out of school and high challenge students who are at risk of dropping out with an alternative path to success. This alternate route will lead to the completion of high school or the General Education Development Test entailing opportunities for vocational-technical preparation and work site learning experiences for a successful transition into the work force and/or post-secondary training. We look forward to working with each student daily, encouraging and supporting them as they make the most of their opportunity to achieve success.
