    "Duffy & MacKinnon Schools in Wharton- *The Wharton district has brought the tech position back in house and now employs a full and part time IT person. *The Wharton district is proud to announce that ALL classroom settings are now equipped with SMARTBOARDS and a Windows 7 teacher workstations. * The Wharton district has purchased 400 Chrome Books to enhance instruction in the classroom. * There are now 24 laptops for every two classes. They will be equipped with Google Apps for Education. *The Wharton district has added an additional server and wireless hubs in each room to improve internet speed and connectivity. The technology lab in the TLC has also been upgraded with new computers as well. That is action! In my opinion, it is not a matter what a school is rated and where, but the effort, enthusiasm, heart and soul of administration, staff and parents. Wharton makes a strong showing in all of the above. Wishing all a great school year. Enjoy those fleeting summer moments and hug your kids."

    "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."
