We opened school this year with 26 countries represented—a record in our 126-year history.
Countries newly represented this year include Cameroon, Denmark, Singapore, and Ukraine. In addition to the 27 cities and town in the United States, students also hail from Azerbaijan, Bhutan, China, Georgia, Indonesia, Nigeria, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, and Vietnam, to name a few. This year’s enrollment of 294 is composed of 157 international students (boarding or homestay) and 137 day students.
“This year’s incoming classes represent a particularly accomplished and diverse set of students,” said Head of School Steve Griffin. He added that he’s excited to see them contribute their talents to the community. Mr. Griffin also pointed out that MacDuffie has 43 teaching faculty, 72% of whom have advanced degrees, and that their average tenure at MacDuffie is seven years.
Respect for diversity is in our mission statement, and we’re proud to offer our students the experience of a multicultural community. Welcome to MacDuffie!
