Deerfield Academy is excited to be partnering with Dr. Suniya Luthar, a world-renowned psychologist and researcher who specializes in studying well-being in high-achieving adolescents. She, along with her lab at Arizona State University, will be administering and analyzing a thorough survey of our student body and in the process helping us to explore aspects of our students’ emotional well-being, personal values, perceived values of parents and administrators, and attitudes and practices related to substance use and relationships (to name a few things that will be surveyed).
On Thursday, February 9, students will gather by grade to complete the survey. As a thank you, a special evening feed will soon follow. Be on the lookout for more details as they emerge!
