New Facilities

Over fifty years of leading lives of passion and purpose.
The Derryfield School begins its second half-century in a position of strength and with a profound sense of opportunity. We are committed to providing facilities that match our stellar academic program.
In addition to the new Science & Innovation Center and Athletic & Wellness Center, new tennis courts, and renovated classrooms completed in 2019, construction is now underway on The Commons, a dining commons in the heart of campus, scheduled to be completed in the winter of 2024.  
The fondest memories are made when gathered around the table. One of the most important things we can do as a family, as a community, with friends, and loved ones, is to share a meal together. It is over a meal that we bond, come together, and grow. Our dedication to this philosophy is seen daily in the Middle School, and by building The Commons, we will bring this sense of community to our entire Derryfield family. We also believe deeply in educating our students about the importance of health, wellness, daily exercise, and good nutrition. We have never had a facility that could provide and teach this value and these important life skills.

It has been our dream and vision for many years to build The Commons at Derryfield, a spot that would be the heart and soul of our School. We are excited to share this vision with you and discuss how we can achieve these goals for Derryfield together.
