Cailynn Vanderpool '21 - Syracuse University
I chose Syracuse because of the welcoming community I experienced every time I visited. Secondly, I found an amazing program that fits my interests and goals exactly. The Bandier Program has a focus on the music business and still offers the opportunity to perform for a tight-knit group of like-minded individuals! I feel so welcome in this community and even though it was over Zoom, the moment I met the program director I knew this was the place for me!
Through the resources Derryfield provided, I felt fully supported in all of my academic endeavors. From the lovely community of supportive students and friends to the caring teachers who strive to help students achieve their personal goals. Wherever you turn there’s always a smiling face to offer you a helping hand. Throughout my entire college process, Mrs. Teeters was very supportive and continuously checked in with me and the other students to see what we could need help with.
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.
