The MacDuffie School is a coeducational college preparatory school for boarding and day students in grades 6-12, located in rural Granby, Massachusetts. The current enrollment is around 200 students, with approximately 50% boarding. The average class size is 10, with a student-teacher ratio of 6:1. Our setting in the Five College area provides unique access to educational and entertainment opportunities in the towns of Amherst and Northampton.
Bachelor's degree and a minimum of 2 years teaching.
The school’s mission is to foster in all students the intellectual habits of mind, high ethical standards, and respect for diversity required for becoming effective individuals in their personal and work lives and moral and responsible participants in the world beyond.
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.
