My enthusiasm for the Deerfield experience has been reaffirmed with Duncan ’17 and Cornelia ’18 at DA. The academic grind is intense as competition is far more fierce that it was with the Class of 1970. Duncan is playing football, hockey, and lacrosse. Cornelia is playing field hockey, ice hockey, and lacrosse. They also both play in the jazz band. Deerfield is one of the few prep schools that still has six seated meals a week with faculty members. Deerfield is much more of a global school than it was in 1970. While DA is, in many respects, a much different school than it was in 1970 it still has a unique student- faculty bond that doesn’t exist at many of DA’s peers.
