    "My daughter just finished Kindergarten this year and is already reading a 3 chapter book! She loves the school, didn't want to miss any days. I like it myself, and the new cafeteria in the new building looks great! It also has a STRICT rule against bullying and that was one of the things I was worried about... I would strongly recommend Durkin Park."

    "My son has attended this Durkin for 2 years and he's learned so much. They do give the little one homework enough to learn. Since this school is small most of the staff knows all the children and that makes it even better because this way they know what their students needs are. The teachers make sure the children understand and make them use their critical thinking. By first grade all the kids are reading good. They only lack a library and bigger lunch rooms. They still need a couple other important rooms in a school. But academically they are outsatnding."

    "I believe that parents along with teachers is what makes a school great, as far as i am concerned Durkin Park is a great school, if you are involved in your childs education, what the school looks like does not affect the learning process. My children are honor roll student and have been for the 3yrs that they have attended. The teachers are great and the Principal is outstanding."
