KDS DAR School's
100th Anniversar

"A Vision Come True"

The Tradition Continues...

Listen to the chimes!

Kate Duncan Smith DAR School opened its doors on February 26, 1924 to offer a quality education for the children of Gunter Mountain and surrounding areas on Kate Duncan Smith's 80th birthday. 

Although much has changed at KDS since the school’s opening a century ago, the mission remains the same today – to provide opportunities for educational and personal growth for students, while emphasizing patriotism, responsible citizenship, and the historical legacy of the school.
