Attending Duxbury High School has completely prepared me and my classmates to handle the next phase of our lives. Whether it be attending college, joining the army, or entering the workforce. Between all of our teachers, guidance department, personable custodians and lunch ladies or Gus the therapy dog who comes every Friday, I believe I am fortunate enough to be at one of the best public schools in the country.

I think Duxbury prepares their students very well for their life beyond high school. The academic environment is challenging and competitive, just like college. The school has also integrated technology very well, as every student from 8-12 grade has their own MacBook Air laptop, that they take to and from every day. Most of our assignments are done and submitted online, which makes being organized an easier task. The one challenge for me was the pressure of being in such a good school system. I was an average student, and always felt pressure from the others around me doing so much better, and the pressure led to anxiety. Although, in the long run, it has taught me how to deal with challenging work and stress management.
Duxbury Public Schools has excellent educational opportunities. The high school offers a variety of different courses and levels, as well as lots of elective options. The sports teams are amazing, and most of them go to state finals each year. Additionally, the school has a phenomenal music program for grades 5-12 that has been recognized as one of the best in the nation five years in a row. The high school also has great clubs such as drama, art club, Best Buddies, She's the First, multicultural club, and so much more. In 2014 construction on the new combined middle and high school was completed and the building is amazing. Each student grades 7-12 receive their own MacBook Air laptop and the classrooms are equipped with the newest technology. One thing that I wish I could change about the Duxbury Public Schools is the diversity of the students, since it is a predominantly white district.
