About The MacDuffie School
MacDuffie is a small, coeducational, boarding/day, college preparatory school for grades 6 – 12, located in Granby, MA. The school has a very diverse student body. Students represent over 20 countries, as well as a number of local municipalities throughout the Pioneer Valley.
MacDuffie's students compete with their peers on standardized test scores (APs, SATs, ACTs, National Language Exams, etc.), and 100% go to colleges of their choice, including many that are highly selective. About a third of students participate in the arts, and about two thirds in athletics, with some overlap between the groups. The arts programs are highly developed, and every year several students are accepted at prestigious professional schools. Students treat each other and members of the faculty with kindness and consideration, with little delineation between grades or cliques.
Students and faculty have a natural and nurturing relationship, based on mutual respect and interest.
