|At Derryfield, we'd like to put some drama in your life - and some art and music, too! That's because we believe an education designed to bring out the best in every student would not be complete without the arts. Derryfield students enjoy a variety of compelling arts courses and have many opportunities to perform and show their work both on campus and in the community. Musicals, dramas, concerts for charity, exhibits like the annual student installations in our Sculpture Garden - the arts at Derryfield take us to the far reaches of our imaginations. But they take our students to some real places as well: Anyone for a regional musical festival in Boston? How about some gallery-hopping in New York City? We bring artists and performers to campus, too, to give students an insider's perspective on life as a professional in the arts. At Derryfield, we know that participation in the arts nurtures artistic and intellectual development, self-expression, self-confidence, and a sense of community. Our students know it's fun!|
