Excellent school! Headmaster Todd Vincent is outstanding!
We sent our two sons to Dexter Southfield and they had a wonderful experience. Dexter Southfield High School is now far superior to Belmont Hill and far surpasses St. Mark’s, which is going downhill. Todd Vincent knows all the kids names, and takes a genuine in their health, well-being and success. A parent couldn’t ask for more!

Dexter Southfield is an excellent school that develops students to become future leaders. The lower and middle school students have obtained strong academic fundamentals with a healthy balance in athletics and the arts. The school has also retained a good portion of the students to the upper school with strong matriculation into some of the best colleges and universities. The current middle school students that do apply out to boarding schools are usually accepted to other top prep schools in the nation, i.e. Andover, Exeter, Deerfield, Groton, etc...
Although newer than most private schools in the area, Dexter is now among the best. They are 'winning' battles for top students according to admissions profiles/where others are applying. Top competitors include Nobles/Belmont Hill/BB&N. New facilities are making Dexter a top attraction as the location and amenities cannot be beat. Academics are of the highest quality. The lower school was, and still is known to be the most elite of private schools. Now the same is happening with the high school as almost 80% of students are being retained from middle school to high school. Students truly have a voice at the school, as so much growth and changes can be attributed to student feedback.
