Duluth Boys advance to Soccer semifinals!!





Second Round Recap  

Our Duluth Boys were headed to Quarterfinals after a huge Win over Tift County, in a home 2nd round playoff game on Wednesday, May 6! Coach Mohsen and the guys defeated the Devils 5-0. The team played well, worked the ball around and proved that they deserve to be ranked 4th in the State at the 6A level. Our boys dominated play and all 19 players contributed to this win. Even some new players pulled-up from our amazing JV team helped out.

Student Art Show
 Duluth High School had an amazing Student Art Show on May 5.  Paintings, drawings, sculptures, mobiles, pottery and decorative furniture, among other creations, were on display in the 400 and 500 buildings. There were also amazing figure sculptures in the garden located between the two buildings. 

Students certainly went above and beyond their teachers' expectations. Each contributed two or three works from this semester. Samples of watercolor, mixed media, colored pencil, marker, spray paint, ink, clay, paper mache, and many other art techniques, brightened the hallways of our campus.

We thank our art students for sharing their beautiful and most creative work!


              Summer Leadership Academy
Announcing our seventh annual Summer Leadership Academy - a three day workshop dedicated to building leadership skills in rising sophomores and juniors from June 17-19.

The Summer Leadership Academy is a great chance for students to learn and grow as young leaders. With sessions about team building, goal setting and time management, this three day experience also gives students a chance to give back - by volunteering at the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site.

Summer Leadership Academy students have an invaluable opportunity that many other students do not. Aside from spending time on a college campus and as volunteers at one of the nation's most historic sites, these students get the chance to interact and collaborate with other high-ability students from various locations in Georgia. The friendships they make and the skills that they build will help shape them into more philanthropic and well-rounded individuals.

The application deadline for Summer Leadership Academy is June 8, 2015. To learn more, please visit the event website by clicking here.
