An Independent Day School For Students in Grades 6 Through 12

Global Adventures

Global awareness and education are integral aspects of a Derryfield education. Whether it's a class on Global Sustainability, World Justice, or the New Hampshire Primary, a service project working with refugees in the Manchester community, or volunteering in a Romanian orphanage, our students are always expanding their horizons. Each year, Derryfield offers middle and upper school students a variety of domestic and international trips and exchanges; all with a significant service and/or cultural theme. These trips offer so much more than just a chance to get away; often, they are transformative experiences that reshape students' perspectives of the world. Read on for more.

Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence

By now, the story is well known: in 1964, a group of 39 visionary Manchester families each contributed $1,000 toward the establishment of a new independent day school. We know now what they couldn’t possibly have known then: fifty years later, their leap of faith has borne fruit, perhaps even beyond their imaginings. Derryfield has grown in size and stature, yet has managed to retain the focus on a personalized education for every student, with family playing a crucial role in the life of the school.

Derryfield celebrated this Golden Anniversary year joyfully and creatively, all year long. If you weren’t able to join the celebration, the following pages will give you a taste of the journey we experienced.
