School Notes:

At The Derryfield School, our vision is "Leading lives of passion and purpose." Small enough for each student to be known and appreciated, nimble enough to create individual pathways in curricular and co-curricular programs. Derryfield graduates leave here ready to succeed at the finest colleges and universities. Most important, they become the best kind of citizens: curious, confident, and committed to lives of passionate engagement. 

CORE VALUES -
  • AIM HIGH: Young people achieve their best in a culture of high expectations and encouragement.
  • BALANCE: We offer inspiring academic, artistic, and athletic opportunities, promoting the development of healthy habits of mind, body, and spirit, and the skill to balance creative tension.
  • CHARACTER: We actively cultivate respect, integrity, compassion, and perseverance in our community members.
  • COMMUNITY: We seek a diverse community defined and sustained by close relationships, social interdependence, and service.
  • FAMILIES: We embrace the family's role in the life of our day school, celebrating collaboration between home and school.
  • INDIVIDUALITY: We encourage young people to grow as unique individuals through the discovery of new passions and a love for learning, self-knowledge, critical inquiry, and reflection.
