Community Life

Opportunities & Outcomes

Small enough and smart enough to truly personalize each learning experience.

Teaching Excellence

Our teachers realize that academic achievement has to come with compassion, or it has no meaning. Derryfield students learn to look beyond their own experiences, instilling a sense of compassion and meaning in their education. Close relationships are formed between students and teachers through advisory, classes, and activities, and with that sense of belonging comes the freedom to take risks and step outside comfort zones.

Transformative Experiences

At Derryfield, the idea is to become not just the best student you can be, but also the best person you can be. Arts, athletics, community service, and student organizations all present ways for students to pursue individual interests, develop leadership and interpersonal skills, make lasting friendships, and enjoy the many rewards of being a part of something greater than oneself. Student life at Derryfield is busy, challenging, fun, inspiring, and energizing all at the same time. The opportunities to discover and fulfill your potential as a member of our community are endless. 

Powerful Outcomes

Derryfield alumni are making a difference around the world, becoming, in the words of the School’s mission, “valued, dynamic, confident, and purposeful members” of their communities, wherever they may be.
