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, and 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 enhance the student experience.  
The Science and Innovation Center serves as an incubator for innovation, creativity, and exploration. The facility includes three wet and two dry labs, a makerspace, robotics lab, inspiration lounge, and an audio/video production studio.
Our new Athletic and Wellness Center prepares students for a lifetime of holistic healthy living, giving them the knowledge and tools to maintain a balanced lifestyle. This 42,000 s.f. facility features three playing courts, a movement room, cardio room, strength and conditioning room, and athletic trainer space.
