Student Publications

Academic challenge, personal growth. What happens in the classroom is only the beginning.
Excerpt: An Upper School organization promoting art and writing at Derryfield and publishing a literary magazine twice a year to celebrate creativity in this community. The Excerpt staff organizes contests and events to encourage young writers and artists to risk and play, developing along the way their skill and craft. To get involved, contact advisor Ms. Josephson or members of the staff. Back issues of Excerpt are available in the periodicals section of the Milne Library. Check out a recent issue of Excerpt.

Lamplighter: The student newspaper of The Derryfield School, published up to eight times annually by the staff. Writers, photographers, graphic artists - indeed, everyone with a talent to share - are encouraged to contact one of the editors or Ms. Schutz and contribute to the newspaper! Read a recent issue of the Lamplighter.

Initium: Derryfield's yearbook is a yearlong commitment. While producing this memorable document we learn about photography, page layout, organizational skills, and we have a little fun too. The group is advised by Mr. Fogg. Download a few pages of the 2005 Initum.

Pinnacle: Derryfield's annual academic magazine contains some of the best academic work in the Derryfield community and incorporates works from every discipline. Jamie Ducharme '11 and Kimberley Selwyn '11 introduced Pinnacle as a method for students to express themselves through academics. The two write, "We recognized that not everyone has a skill that can be easily displayed on the field, the stage, or the gallery walls; we hope to help fill that void with this project." Read the 2012 issue of Pinnacle.
