Duarte High School Home of the Falcons

Duarte High School is an exemplary learning environment comprised of talented teachers, committed support staff, dedicated administrators, loyal parents, a generous community and Fabulous Falcon students. It is our goal for our students to be equipped with 21st Century Skills needed to be successful following graduation in college, career and life.

We provide a learning environment that fosters in students the ability to make informed choices; to develop the ability to respond and adapt to change; to acquire an appreciation for learning as a lifelong process, and to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to form their own vision for a life in a diverse and changing world.

We are known for our Four-Year Early College/Dual Enrollment program in partnership with Citrus College, our STEM opportunities that include Engineer Your World™ developed by the University of Texas and NASA engineers, and Biotechnology courses in partnership with City of Hope whereby students produce authentic research in laboratory settings.

Our unique Career Academies provide students with pathways to post-secondary education and careers. Available Career Academies that provide certifications in the pathways through Precision Exams include: NAF Culinary Arts Business Entrepreneurship Dual Academy, Design, Visual, and Media Arts Academy, Production and Managerial Arts Academy, and the Healthcare/Biotechnology Academy.

We foster a positive school culture at Duarte High School. Student leadership is encouraged and developed through leadership classes and student council. Our award-winning VAPA Programs include Marching Band & Color Guard, Choir, Fine Arts, Drama, Culinary Arts, and photography. Our competitive athletic programs earn League and CIF Championships, and we offer extra-curricular activities and clubs that promote school spirit, community service, and pride.

“Connecting learners with their passion is the driving force of our school, and we are proud to offer our students a rigorous academic program and engaging learning environment,” shared Principal Haro.
