We offer a full range of classes, serving families of Toddlers 18 months to age 5 (G.B.M.S), Grade 1 to Grade 8 (D.E.P.S), & Grade 9 to 12 (Durham Academy).

Our schools offer students an environment that is designed to help your child reach their maximum potential. Here, students experience respect and manners from their peers and the caring specialized staff.

Our schools boast excellent customer service. You can expect to be kept up to date on your child’s progress, and alerted to any issues or difficulties that they may be having. Parents can expect a daily schedule of their child’s day and ongoing communication and feedback. Three full report cards are written and sent home each school year and a minimum of two parent teacher conferences are suggested throughout the year.

The Principal ensures that all standards are met, and the staff are always striving to surpass expectations. Specialization in subjects and activities are offered in French, Piano, Recorder, Chess, ESL etc. Students are able to participate in lunchtime intramurals, private piano lessons, after school programs and tutoring.

As a parent, you can feel comfortable knowing that all safety measures are taken here. You will see an academic and social transformation in your child when they start attending our school. With small class sizes, your child will receive lots of individual attention.

G.B.M.S & D.E.P.S have been teaching students in compliance with all legislation for over 32 years. Due to parent request we have opened Durham Academy Secondary School.

You are invited to call the school office for a tour of our wonderful facilities and we will arrange it around your schedule. Throughout the year you are invited to attend one of our many school events or concerts before registering your child. We invite you to spend time in a class and have your child visit for a morning or day without obligation.
