Preparing Today's Learners for Tomorrow's World


At James Dukes, we believe in dreaming big! 

We believe in high quality teaching and learning.  Every student on our campus will be college and career ready for the 21st century.

We believe in demonstrating a high level of character.

We believe in collaborative team work with parents.


We are committed to these 3 site-wide goals:

1. James Dukes students will be thinkers who synthesize, organize, reflect and respond to the world in writing.
2.  James Dukes students will be resourceful mathematical problem solvers who are college and career ready.
3.  James Dukes students will be civic leaders by participating in a character education program that promotes a culture of kindness through the eight RUSD character traits.
