Welcome to DAR High School

Welcome to Kate Duncan Smith DAR School, Inc., located on Gunter Mountain in northeast Alabama.  The school serves grades K-12 and provides opportunities for the children of a large, rural area in the Appalachian foothills to develop a strong love of American ideals as they obtain a distinctive academic background.  Emphasis is upon patriotic education throughout the curriculum.  Although the school plant and enrollment have increased greatly in size and number since 1924, the same spirit of dedication to achievement, patriotic and moral values, and service to community and country exists on the campus today as it did in the early years of this unique educational experiment of the Daughters of the American Revolution. 

Patriot Nation Message

Our hearts are broken over the loss of one of our students.  He was in a tragic car accident on his way to school this morning.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the student’s family and our DAR School family. 

It is a very difficult time for our school system.  Extra counselors were called to the schools. We thank our local church ministers, school counselors, and counselors from our support agencies.  We are so thankful we have such a caring and supportive school staff and community. 

The student was senior and a huge asset to our DAR football team.  At the family’s request, the game will be played tonight in his honor.  Also, in honor of his legacy, we will be retiring his jersey.  His cousin and teammate, J.T. Balch will be carrying his jersey tonight and presenting to his parents.  All family members will be embellished with corsages.  Anyone that is available, please join us in his honor.

Welcome Back.  Have a Great Year!!
