Deerfield is a great place to grow up! The town and community of Deerfield have so much to offer. Although taxes are high, the education the child will get from public school makes it worth it. The community is very healthy with a Recreation center and club teams to join, one of the most popular being CoHo Swim Club, as well as two public pools. With well-maintained roads and a Metra train station right in the center of town, any commute local or into the city is easy. Over all, it is a wonderful community with pleanty to offer any typer of resident

Deerfield has offered opportunities to the youth here that are unmatched by other areas. With a strong school system consisting of supportive teachers, a friendly staff, and a world class education, kids are leaving Deerfield intellectually well prepared for the world. It is extremely safe and such a giving community. There are endless opportunities for part time jobs, volunteering, and getting involved in the community.
Deerfield is a great community however, I would like to see more diversity in here.
Shopping and restaurants are limited. Health and wellness is a major focus. A terrific school district.
