At Derryfield, we know that everyone has the capacity to be a leader throughout their lives and it is critical to our mission to help students develop the skills and habits of mind necessary to do so. The goal of our Leading for the Common Good program is for every student to develop their unique potential to impact their world and this inclusive definition serves as a framework for the program. There are three primary areas through which the program aims to develop students’ capacity as leaders: developing self-awareness, strengthening character, and understanding and exercising influence. Just like ripples in water, we hope the impact created by this leadership program and by each of our students is positive, widespread, and ever expanding.
Located in Manchester, NH, The Derryfield School is a private day school for grades 6-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
