Deerfield offers students a wide and varied group of clubs and organizations that offer many teaching moments. Students publish newspapers, magazines, books, and websites. They debate at other schools and regional competitions. They organize to raise funds for disaster relief. They climb mountains and hike trails. They play chess, Go, and Frisbee.
