    "Marie V. Duffy School is a K- 5 Elementary School with the middle school connected. The schools share their special teachers and the cafeteria. So it is not unusual for students who are in 8th grade to see their kindergarten or 1st grade teachers. The teachers in Marie V. Duffy school give it their 100 % when it come to the students. My children attended Marie V. Duffy school and graduate 8th grade from the Mackinnon Middle School They have always love going to school and I believe that it came from their elementary school teachers.. The teachers are creative in presenting the material so they always want to learn. Do this day my daughter who is older will remember something she learned in Kindergarten. The school has many opportunities for the students especially if they are struggling or even if they are bright. They have homework clubs, gifted and talented program. They have kept up with the technology and have the students work on laptops, computers, smart boards. This allows them to learn how far technology has gone and that they can accomplish anything. The teachers are friendly, caring, loving and make an impression on all their students."

    "We have been an active part of the Duffy school community for 7 years and I feel that my two children continue to be nurtured and cared for and well educated by a dedicated staff and administration. The class sizes are small and cater to individual attention. In third grade my daughter experienced anxiety attacks for weeks at a time. The teachers, guidance counselor, and principal made it their mission to ensure she felt safe and the issue resolved. Raising educated children takes a partnership and if you are a parent willing to put in time to educate and be present with your children, Duffy is a fantastic school. Some believe that it is primarily the school's responsibility for education. It needs to be a partnership and when this happens, great kids and life long learners emerge. Academically , my children are challenged and my son has been given the opportunity to advance in math 2 years beyond grade level. The administration made this happen because they know it was the right thing to do. We are happy in this district, and would encourage others to look to the heart of this town and school. both of which are gold."
