Duchesne is such a unique community. Every student you walk by in the hallways is your friend. Everyone smiles at you and holds the doors open for you. Being a student of the Sacred Heart is much bigger than we all think, and it's amazing that as a part of this community, I have 700+ sisters. 12th Grader
