|Our Best for Your Best. That's the Derryfield promise. It's realized every day through small, engaged classes taught by dynamic, dedicated teachers. In Derryfield classrooms, students feel safe to take intellectual risks. And what happens in the classroom is only the beginning. For example, Derryfield's active style of learning brings Middle School science students out to the woods to track animal prints in the snow. It sends Upper School language students to Manchester's Hispanic communities for service learning. It encourages our seniors to complete Independent Senior Projects that take them, in some cases, all over the world! |
Our Middle School Academic Programs combine a seriousness of purpose with a sense of fun and love of learning. Our Upper School Academic Programs result in a 100 percent acceptance rate at four-year colleges for graduates. The fact is, Derryfield is committed to fostering the best intellectual development and the best educational outcomes for all students.
Are you ready to be your best?

|Middle Schoolers Earn Honors in Fosters' Holiday Contest|
Each year since the Whitmores began teaching English at Derryfield, they have entered middle school writing and art submissions to the Fosters Daily Democrat Holiday Art and Writing Contest. Now in its 32nd year, the newspaper's contest accepts art and writing from first graders up through high school students in New Hampshire. This year there were hundreds of entries from across the state judged by three judges on a scale of 1-10, adding up to a perfect score 30. Of the 74 winning entries, only ten received a perfect score of 30, two of which were Derryfield eighth graders. Kelly Collins' drawing and Tyler Crews' short story both received this honor.
