Welcome to Deerfield School!
We are proud to offer outstanding academics in an attentive, family oriented environment. Our scholastic standards are set high, our expectations are strong, and as a caring community, we provide personal support along the way.
Deerfield School is home to Mountainside children in grades three through eight, and offers unique opportunities for leadership roles and relationship building among students. Mountainside students progress through eighth grade at Deerfield School and attend top-ranked Governor Livingston High School in the neighboring town of Berkeley Heights.
In addition to excellent academic course offerings, Deerfield School provides extra-curricular programs that include lively arts and music enrichment, athletic activities, and meaningful character education designed to address the development of the whole child.
The teaching staff at Deerfield are also learning and growing. Our critical focus this year is the acquisition of new ideas, new lessons, new approaches, strategies, and techniques that will engage every student and promote individual achievement. Professional development opportunities have been built into the school calendar to support student growth in this way.
If you are looking for an education with a thoughtful point of view, I invite you to our small, but distinctive community of achievement. Feel free to contact our main office and get to know us better. We will gladly answer your questions.
