    "To say we are unsatisfied with this school is putting it lightly. Our son went from straight A's to failing the entire grade when we moved to this school. The open concept is VERY damaging to a child's education and that is a professional opinion. I have spoken to a large number of people in our neighborhood and they all have had problems with this school and have the same complaints that we have. We will be moving immediately to a better school zone. Everyone speaks Spanish or acts like they are from the ghetto. Do NOT move to this school zone, its not worth it."

    "My daughter 1st year at Duryea was last year. I'm not impressed and I feel that the majority demographic is catered to at this school. There isn't a lot of parent involvement becuase they advertise that Thursday is the day for volunteers. This is a turnoff for any parent that can volunteer any other time except the requested Thursday. The classrooms still seem to be a bit overcrowded especially for the tiny classroom setup they have. I recently noticed the campus goals on the website and it's all a lie especially the goal about hands on science. My daughter loves science and she was very disappointed last year. Deep Reading/Compelling Writing Student Safety/Positive Behavior Strong Problem Solving Hands On Science Integrated Technology/Engaging Instruction Higher Level Thinking Parent Involvement None of this is going on at Duryea."

    "Unfortunately there is very little parent-school communication. Teachers seems great, but PTO was non-existent, very few to none activities. Wish we could move back to Walker, where the principal was very involved and the school had numerous activities, parental involvement, and the education provided was exceptional. When asked about school activities, school uses the excuse that parents are not involved, however, I went a whole year without ever being asked for anything and I gave over 50 hours of volunteer time to the middle school last year, so I'm sure I would have found time for the elementary school and work my full time job as well."

    "My children moved from Jowell to Duryea and the first year I was far more satisfied than I had been for the 3 years at Jowell combined. The teachers are very personable and take time to communicate with notes or calls. The nurse calls just to say if your child is not ill but came in, the principal is VERY involved and willing to address any issues that may occur. The school participates in various fundraising activities and the money is used towards purchases that are visible and needed. The school is clean and has a great system of security. I love Duryea and think it will continue to flourish in the next few years."

    "My 2 children attended Duryea for 2 years until they were rezoned. I really like Mrs Harbin, the principle because she is one of the most caring and involved principles I have met. You can always count on her to show up in any events even during chuck e cheese or skate night. She cares about her students in every way. The PTO also did a great job in fundraising. Just within a year, we got a shade for the playground. I disagreed on the other parents about the school not hving much extracurriculum. The problem this school has is overcrowding, having 1600 students!! I would understand it would be hard to actually accomodate everyone in any extracurriculum not to mention normal activities. Let's be more understanding and patient. It will be a great school under Mrs Harbin leadership. We were so sad we had to leave Duryea."
