Kate Duncan Smith DAR School

Kate Duncan Smith DAR School, Inc. is 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.
