    My Deerfield experience was a positive one, where I grew immensely. Being ahead in math, I never ran out of classes to take and felt adequately challenged. I enjoyed all subjects purely because of the enthusiasm and expertise of the incredible faculty members who taught me. As a varsity athlete, I felt greatly supported athletically and loved that the student body makes an effort to attend games of all genders and levels.

    Though an ongoing effort, I believe the academy made unmeasurable strides towards true gender equality in my time there, taking the time to engage in tough discussions and never hesitating to pinpoint a flaw in hopes of bettering it in the future. I am hopeful that these efforts continue even after Dr. Curtis retires.

    In terms of college readiness, the college guidance department is simply fantastic. They are with students through every step of the college process and I have genuinely never seen someone leave Deerfield unhappy about where they'll be learning next.

    I am from Eaglebrook school and I go to DA every week. The amount of freedom the Deerfield kids get is jaw dropping compared to the amount of babying in Eaglebrook school. The community is diverse, I am friends with a few alums who think the school is great! I might attend here soon.
    Though Deerfield's academics and athletics (in certain sports) are first-class in the nation, these are not the qualities that I enjoy most about Deerfield. Deerfield's greatest aspect resides in its intense school spirit. Football games are rowdy and hockey games make my ears bleed (figuratively). The excitement at concerts is great and dances all have a marvelous vibe. Though this may sound cool, if it's not your cup of tea, Deerfield has ways of being eerily quiet too. It's literally in the middle of nowhere. Though Deerfield Academy isn't for everyone by any means, it tries its best to be a jack of all trades, and I can at least respect its effort.
