    Durham Performance Learning Center is a unique non-traditional high school that offers the same academics your child would receive in traditional high school. The virtual high school setting has allowed my son to move at his own pace and build the confidence and self esteem. DPLC have capable committed educators that share in the determination to see your student and all students at DPLC succeed. The students at DPLC are respectful of one another and act as mentors supporting their fellow peers that are underclassmen. The school operates with a business mindset therefore the students are expected to dress in shirt ties and slacks to further prepare them for the business world. The Principal and his staff have done an excellent job making this a school to watch for. Truly making a difference - DPLC
