School Reviews

The MacDuffie School in Granby, MA has been a wonderful school experience for my daughter who entered the school in 6 grade three years ago when it moved to Granby. The academics have been very challenging and the teachers outstanding. They offer a wide variety of clubs, theater productions, community service opportunities and athletics. The overall experience has been wonderful! I believe she is receiving a top notch education at The MacDuffie School.
