My parents both graduated from Durand High School and I had the opportunity to join this school in my 10th grade year. The teachers made the transition easy, they all welcomed me with open arms. The students were overall friendly, besides the occasional mean girl. The academics were great and the sport games were fun. I had a great time here and would allow my children to go there as well!

Durand Schools has a long history of excellence and supremacy over schools around it. The 1900's were a time of prosperity for the small Railroad based town, the district was able to spend much money to the students' educations. However, as the decline of the railroads so came about the town and thus the school has fallen into a slump, which had now placed most its pride into the award winning marching band, which I happen to be a part of. The people of Durand are supportive of the programs within the school and do anything to help the kids.
The teachers aren't the best and the brightest out there or anything, but they genuinely care about the students, as do the janitors, lunch ladies, counselors, and office staff. The school isn't very cliquey and doesn't have much bullying at all. Probably the biggest problem I see in students is lack of respect in romantic relationships.
