Doctor Ben TantilloEdit

Superintendent of the Duxbury School system:  

Tantillo has been superintendent of the Pascack Valley Regional High School District in Montvale, N.J., for the past 10 years. In 2006, he was named New Jersey’s Superintendent of the Year. Duxbury School Committee voted unanimously Tuesday to give Tantillo the job. Tantillo began his career as an English and social studies teacher and also taught health and physical education. He earned a doctorate in education from Nova University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and his master’s and bachelor’s degrees from West Virginia Wesleyan. During his interviews in Duxbury, Tantillo talked about introducing “service learning projects” for seniors in their last semester as a way of giving them life experience. At Pascack Valley, Tantillo eliminated class rank. He explained that ranking can put students at a disadvantage when they are applying to college because they are being compared to students in less challenging schools and courses.

Class info Edit

We have some large classes in the DHS right now but according to the science men they will go down so we won’t be crowded in 50 years

Around 1050 students are currently enrolled enrolled

Demographics Edit

In the year of 2015 we collected data. This data entailed that 0.2% of Duxbury High school was African American and that 1.6 % of students are Asian 1.3% were Hispanic 0.1 % are native american 95.4% are white and 1.4 % are multi race non hispanic. And the gender enrollment was 561 males and 531 female

Laptop Program Edit

The new laptop iConnect program is being experimented with.  Connecting the students to the internet, there are now many ways to stop students from playing games in class, which was previously a big issue. Now laptops are used responsibly and for school work only.

BreadBoard Edit

The breadboard was designed as a senior privelege, including the ability to eat student- made fresh food, however due to the contract with the school’s lunch provider, that has been made a distant dream.  These days the breadboard is having issues with not having nearly enough chairs to support senior lunches

The new school at Duxbury is a co-located Middle and High School designed by the Mount Vernon Group. It is part of the 65 plus acre of Saint George Street campus and was built in the area behind the existing Duxbury Middle School. The 525-foot corridor down the center of the building has a terrazzo floor, designed with the aid of satellite photos to resemble Duxbury’s distinctive barrier beach. The total cost of the school was $128 million and houses nearly 1,900 students. This school is built for 21st-century learning.

Outdoor Learning Area Edit

The Outdoor Learning Area is a community effort. The project began in 2013 and continues in development. The goal of the project is to create an outdoor learning are for use by all three of the Duxbury schools located on site as well at the community. Funding the project has exclusively been through the Battelle Memorial Institute in relationship with the Duxbury Education Foundation. The site abuts the original property of the Alden House and trail that existed between Plymouth and Marshfield during Massachusetts’ early history including residents Myles Standish and John Alden.
