    "Last year was my son's first year at Durkin for sixth grade. I must say I was very impressed with the faculty and the staff. The teachers are great! My son transferred from St. Bede School and I realized the kids at Durkin were a lot more advanced. I wish I would have sent him here from Kindergarten. I wasted so much money all these years. I would definitely recommend this school!!"

    "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."
