Well Rounded. Challenging. Enjoyable. Memorable. Weird. Friendships.
I only attened Durfee for 6 months as a freshmen and it was the worst experience of my life. There was a lack of interest and of passion. The teachers certainly didn't care. Most classes were too big to control so we sat there using our phones for the period. I gained nothing from my time there especially nothing with any educational value, and dreaded showing up every morning.
I absolutely love this school. Coming from Atlantis Charter, I was extremely nervous as to matters of size and the people I would encounter. Since the very first day I started, I've enjoyed every minute of it. The students are like a family, and the teachers, are so close with their students, and genuinely care, contrary to popular belief. I've developed relationships with each and everyone of my teachers and have not a single complaint. Socially, there are such real-world lessons you could never learn anywhere else. Academically, you are challenged and pushed to succeed. You must take charge of your own education in order to reach maximum potential, which I have most certainly done. Mr. Marshall is an amazing principal and has really taken great steps to improve the once-tarnished-reputation of the school. Since Durfee can not pick and chose its students, the academics taught are not showcased by each student to their true potential. Class choices are limitless and cater to the needs of every type of person. Compared to the other high school in Fall River, there is no competition. You would regret going to any other school.
I love Durfee, and I'm sure most of the student population would agree. The teaching staff is amazing and they're all involved with the school. Most people have so much school spirit and it's just a pleasure to go to school everyday. It's a great learning environment and I would highly suggest it to anyone.
