As members of the Deerfield Academy community, these school values should guide our day-to-day interactions, promoting a kind, caring, compassionate, ethical, and inclusive community for all.
This Handbook serves as a compass, encouraging actions that foster kindness and align with our values, while also addressing behaviors that may hinder such an environment. Additionally, there is an emphasis on the importance of growth and learning throughout these formative adolescent years. Each of us wants to contribute to and be supported in this community, and by following our school values, we can create lasting bonds and ensure healthy interactions across the school.
Over the years, this Handbook has evolved, and it will continue to adapt with the student experience. If you have clear, constructive feedback and suggestions for its next version, please let us know. We always welcome the respectful exchange of ideas.
