    "If you got to Durfee you must know what you want to do because making your schedule here will be a lot of work. Really know what classes are available and what you are interested in. CP classes are okay but what you really want to do is go into the higher level classes to actually learn things. Clubs and the music department are great in meeting people and having a good time in high school."

    "This school has taught me many things from gaining a great education to wonderful courses to having connections with amazing teachers that help me with anything I can possibly think of. The diversity was a huge part of the culture and it really prepared me for moving onto the real world and seeing many different cultures in college."

    "Durfee High School is a great place to be if you are a high achieving student. My experiences with the AP, Dual Enrollment and Honors programs were positive, from curriculum to teachers. The large size provided lots of opportunities when it came to classes and variety of extra-cirriculars (yet funding was another story). However, support systems for students outside of the Honors/AP tracks are definitely lacking, in guidance, effective discipline and instructors. I saw many students get lost in the shuffle, one downfall of the school's size. Many of these problems are largely due to a school system that is underfunded. Teachers are often not given the resources that would enable them to best reach their students, but many make do effectively. There are a motivated bunch of teachers at the school who strive to connect with students and truly invest in their success, unfortunately it seems as though there are not enough of those to go around."

    "In my experience, B.M.C. Durfee High School has taught me a lot in the time that I have been there. I have learned how to manage my time, how to perfect my assignments, and how to be an involved member of the community. Durfee has allowed me to volunteer my time throughout the Fall River community, and allow me to grow as an individual person. There are so many kids that come in and out of Durfee, and I strive to be one my teachers will remember. In a class of 540 students, Durfee has not only taught me to chase my dreams, but to help myself. To standout I take the highest level classes, and engage with my teachers often. I am not afraid to ask questions, or to question something someone else says. I find that Durfee has well prepared me for my next journey in life; college."

    "Most of the teachers at Durfee are very interesting and easy to understand. There are plenty of AP classes to choose from, as well as Dual Enrollment opportunities. Guidance is helpful, most of the time. If only the building itself was not falling apart. There is little circulation, temperature control is horrible, when its raining outside you have to be careful not to trip over buckets in the halls, as the ceiling is full of leaks; the list goes on. Also, there is a bathroom stall missing its door."
