Duarte Unified School District is the home of the California School of the Arts!
DUSD is proud to offer an exclusive college preparatory and pre-professional arts conservatory program for students in Grades 7-12 in partnership with CSArts, the newest campus of the prestigious Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA). Based on the innovative and award-winning curriculum at OCSA, CSArts delivers the same high caliber academic and arts education. Students in the joint program for Grades 7-8 have a customized academic and conservatory schedule shared between a DUSD K-8 Academy and the CSArts campus.
Each school within our district offers unique educational opportunities, high-tech classrooms, and quality instruction. Our schools earn state and national honors for the exceptional programs we offer starting with preschool and continuing on to our 4-year Early College program. It’s no wonder why students from over 80 cities across Southern California and beyond choose to attend our schools.
