My daughter attended Watson B. Duncan and my son is currently there. This school has the best principal I have ever seen as well as a great staff. Our needs have always been met with kindness and caring.
I think this is the best school as a student im treated fair and right.
I went to this middle school for the 3 years I had to and it was the best time of my life. I was easily getting A's and learning the material I needed. The people there are amazing and every one is different and your not being judged all the time. I am now a 9th grader and if anything, I missed watson B duncan middle school most.
It is almost impossible to get a conference with a teacher because most of the teachers at Duncan Middle School do not call parents to tell them if a student is falling behind in their class Unless you have Ed Line you will never know anything until your son/ daughter gets their report card; then it is too late.
This school is great! I went to duncan for one year and it was the best year ever. As long as you hang out with the right crowds you're pretty much alright. The teachers are wonderful and cooperative, they really know how to bring out the fun in learning. This is a great place to make friends and learn about character and real life.
I'm atteding at this school, it's a very nice school; but the students are undisciplined, about 60% percent of the students in a classroom they don't want to learn almost anything and they show little respect for classmates and teachers. I also believe that this school has lost alot of prestigue in many aspects by the students and by the few mediocre teachers. If your child wants to come to this school, he has to be in Advanced or Honors classes in order to enjoy it.
My children attended 6th and 8th grade at Duncan; it was the worst school year of their lives. My daughter, who loves to learn, hated everyday. My son felt like an outsider everyday. It is run like a boot camp with good kids punished along with the troubled ones. Thankfully, they are in new school now. So much for 'A' rated!
duncan is a wonderful school great teacher great staff. the princeapal is very understanding the student are great they have great sports to offer
This school has been a disappointment to both my children. My oldest is now in High School and wonders how he got through Duncan. My other child is an honor student and was very involved in the school until some bully decided to cause a fight, which my child, the injured victim, was suspended with the repeat aggressor. Safety is a concern as well as fair treatment by administration. This, by far, did not fit into 'zero tolerance' and is being disputed.
Duncan is a great school with a great princeable. He is soooo nice. there are many reading challenges and fundraisers. I have so many friends.You can email me for more info. Sadly this is my last year at duncan, i have been there for 3 years.
This school if going down hill. Too many videos and worksheets and too little learning.
My daughter attended Watson B. Duncan Middle school for 7th & 8th grade. She had caring, well-educated teachers and blossomed with the pleasant open atmosphere. My daughter enjoyed the campus, the library, clean cafeteria and good sized classrooms. The school is within walking distance of our home so we don't know anything about the bus transportation to Duncan. I chaperoned a couple of field trips, one to the Kravis Center for a play. Her teachers were always pleasant and encouraged parental involvement.
During my time attending Duncan Middle School I have expanded my brain to an exceptional size. The diversity of the different cultures and the very little narrow-minded people have made me come out of my middle school career with great memories, more talents,and a sharper mind in which I will us in my upcoming future. The great curriculums in Math, Science,History,English,and the many enlightening foreign languages has supplied the many students with an enormous amount of information like French,Chinese,and Spanish languages. Along with the many foreign languages the extracurricular actities and the availability of interactive sports, music(chorus and band), and art has made the normalcy of a student's life more bearable. The variety of after-school programs are alway fun-filled and together with the electives they will sure to pass the day quickly.
There is no respect for the individual student. They do not value or honor the student. They (most of the teachers) belittle, embarrass and harrass the children. These words which came from another middle school re; duncan and their staff i think sums it up; 'oh, duncan. Well, we are not like duncan here. We respect the individual student and value them as a person. And we of course expect the same in return.' Duncan really could use someone outside to clean house and get staff that not only know how to spell correctly, teach, but can 'encourage' the child, not destroy. Oh, and the safety, officer ferrell is on a permanent vacation!
