There is too big of a divide between the different races when it comes to social life. Teachers should also be constantly reviewed by the students and made sure that they work to fix their biggest problems so that the teachers become better. While the rumors about certain teachers, such as the talk about how harshly Mr. Henry graded, when it was still around a few years ago or the relatively bad teaching quality of certain teachers, they should have been reviewed by the faculty and worked on so that the students get better education and learn to enjoy the classes that they take.
Review Deerfield Academy
Deerfield Academy offers exceptional academics in a highly supportive, friendly and welcoming environment. The facilities are second to none (many have been recently renovated) and the the setting is absolutely beautiful. Deerfield teachers are renowned for their accessibility and dedication. The athletics are intense and the social life is vibrant. Our child feels very happy and lucky to be there.
As a member of the great class of 1975, time has past and great memories are still fresh. The school had a different feel as all boys in 1975 but the core remains the same, or indeed, enhanced by the addition of young ladies. My experience on the Executive committee from 2002 - 2008 allowed me to take in the "new and improved" version of this well grounded school. I learned in college from one great English teacher who rarely gave an A grade that we should keep this mark for only the most exceptional. That's Deerfield to me.
