Duff is a great elementary school. It's got a small neighborhood feel to it. Parents are very involved and the teachers are excellent.
My daughter has been attending Duff for two years and she loves it! Kindergarten and first grade were fantastic years with super teachers and an incredible staff. We actually moved out of the area last year, but have gladly paid the transfer fee to keep her enrolled. The teachers, PTA, Duff Dad's group, and the other families have made the school so great. Please go check it out if you have any doubt. The principal and vice principal are wonderful and very welcoming. I think everything is there to help your children succeed.
If you plan to enroll your kid from outside of Texas then try another school because when I attended this school they discriminated against me when I moved from Maryland to Texas. The discrimination I received was age discrimination.
Duff elementary has excellent teachers, students, administrators, and the students are all high achievers because of the support they receive from parents, teachers, and administrators.
Love Duff Elementary School. I am proud that child attends this school. Leadership and Staff are wonderful, my daughter is excelling in 1st grade. Keep up the good work Duff.
My granddaughters go to school at Duff and I think it is a very good school
I am a parent that is not very happy at all with this school.I havent seen anything at all in 3 years that shows me that they should a high rating. It is unsafe and kids that have learning problems do not get the correct care.
I highly recommend this school! Teachers are outstanding and always willing to take a moment to talk to you regarding any questions or concerns you may have about your child.
I have two children - my son is a fifth grader and my daughter attended 4th-6th grades at Duff. I find a sense of real caring from faculty and staff. There is a wide variety of extra curricular activities offered in addition to a strong focus on academics. The PTA runs like a well-oiled machine with lots of parent involvement and a tradition of excellence!
Very structured. Principal and teachers very helpful. Emphasis on math and English.
School was safe and the children are sheltered. Most children are active in out of school activities. Parents are very active with their children and the school. Teachers are a little old School in their teaching approach, they could benefit from learning and using newer teaching tools, more teaching and less work sheets. Lower social economic group may have more trouble socially
The teachers seem to really connect with the students. They have a personal interest in making sure each child has the best education possible.
My son went here 1st through 6th grade. I also had two daughters at this school. You cannot ask for a better school. All the teachers are nice and really care. The school has a real 'homey' feel that is very hard to find. Everyone at this school treated me like family. I really miss it.
The school is smaller and I feel it is safe. I have had a lot of difficulty getting teachers to work with me (4 consecutive years) Am currently considering transferring my child.
My son is in kindergarten and we love the school! The school counsellor is wonderful! There is a lot of parent involvement and school spirit.
Duff Elementary is an excellant School. Parents are very involved. School is smaller than some, where students won't get lost in the shuffle. My son has here for the past two years, and is currently in the 2nd grade.
The teachers are very warm and friendly. The counseler is there fot the kids. Every one is very helpful with any question.
