Rules and Expectations

It is impossible to list every rule. At Deerfield, we hope to cultivate the judgment required to determine right from wrong—and to use that understanding as a guide in the decisions we make each day. Together, we commit to these aspirations through our Community Pledge: “I will act with respect, honesty, and concern for others, and I will seek to inspire the same values in our community and beyond.”

When we are thoughtful about individual decisions and everyday habits, we have the opportunity to align our own interests with those of the larger community. This may be the most important lesson we learn at Deerfield.
