High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Emory University founded Druid Hills School in the Fishburne Building on the Emory Campus in 1919. In 1928, the K-11 school moved to its current site at Haygood Drive.   In 1959, the elementary students were moved to Fernbank Elementary School and Druid Hills then housed grades 8 to 12. Between 1974 and 1976, the school was remodeled under the direction of an architect. In the fall of 1996, Druid Hills merged with Shamrock High School to become a 9 to12 high school.  
Everett F. Patrick is Principal of the school. Druid Hills has maintained its association with Emory University through the Druid Hills Community Consortium. The consortium consists of five institutions Emory University, Druid Hills High School, Fernbank Elementary School, Fernbank Science Center and Egleston Children's Hospital. In May of 1994, the Druid Hills Community Consortium received a next generation school project grant to implement a fiber optic network that linked the Consortium sites for the purpose of providing two way interactive distance learning opportunities. The facility is also available for community productions.  In 1997, Druid Hills became the first charter school in DeKalb County. As a charter school, Druid Hills had autonomy to implement teaching strategies that improve student achievement.
Their staff divided in to many departments include administration, English, social studies, arts department, library media center, special education, career technology,       maintenance, physical education, world language, counseling, mathematics, science and support staff.

The mission of Druid Hills School is to provide an environment in which all students will acquire the necessary skills to become responsible thinkers who appreciate diversity and are productive citizens in their community.
