The Duffield PreK to 8 school received a $9.5 million renovation in 2011 and merged with the Bunche PreK to 8 program. The existing facility is a large, sound structure with significant architectural value. Improved technology and classroom upgrades support the academic focus of the school as a 21st Century learning environment. A centrally-located media center is located on the second floor. A portion of the existing east wing was demolished and replaced with a new, properly outfitted gymnasium. Food preparation areas were expanded and modernized to support student dining needs. In keeping with the bond program’s focus on safety, the main office, complete with a new security suite, was relocated in close proximity to the main entrance of the school.
