Middle School

Support & Enrichment

Small enough and smart enough to truly personalize each learning experience.
Middle school faculty have embedded coordinated skills instruction through the middle school curriculum. Director of Academic Support Jenny Boesch maintains close communication with classroom teachers and advisors to identify students needing academic support. In addition, students and parents are encouraged to contact Jenny Boesch at jboesch@derryfield.org for consultation on the services that match their needs. Students on financial aid will work out support needs with Jenny and the financial aid office.
