Durfee Elementary School Reviews
lacking site support
This school was once the standard and model of the district, Under current leadership they programs and family atmosphere has vanished. The successful high school students look back and credit a select few male upper grade teachers for mentoring them.
As a teacher at this school I can say that the instructors are dedicated to improving student learning and to provide a secure and positive environment.
