Last year was my son's first year at Durkin for sixth grade. I must say I was very impressed with the faculty and the staff. The teachers are great! My son transferred from St. Bede School and I realized the kids at Durkin were a lot more advanced. I wish I would have sent him here from Kindergarten. I wasted so much money all these years. I would definitely recommend this school!!

My son has attended this Durkin for 2 years and he's learned so much. They do give the little one homework enough to learn. Since this school is small most of the staff knows all the children and that makes it even better because this way they know what their students needs are. The teachers make sure the children understand and make them use their critical thinking. By first grade all the kids are reading good. They only lack a library and bigger lunch rooms. They still need a couple other important rooms in a school. But academically they are outsatnding.

I believe that parents along with teachers is what makes a school great, as far as i am concerned Durkin Park is a great school, if you are involved in your childs education, what the school looks like does not affect the learning process. My children are honor roll student and have been for the 3yrs that they have attended. The teachers are great and the Principal is outstanding.
