School Notes

  • We balance a rigorous academic program with a warm and caring community. Our students come to us from the Pioneer Valley and across the globe. MacDuffie embraces the uniqueness of each student to create an inclusive environment; both our small class sizes (an average of 11 students) and our small school size (approximately 300) allows every student to be known by every adult. The result is meaningful connections that have a great impact on each student`s educational experience.

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.
