Dear Deerfield Community,
This year, for the first time, U.S. News and World Report ranked elementary schools across the country. Out of more than 1,000 public elementary schools, the Deerfield School was ranked #9 in Massachusetts! This is wonderful news and a reflection of the strength of our entire Deerfield and WPS community:
- Our Deerfield students for their kindness, curiosity, perseverance, and the many ways they live our core values throughout each school day.
- Our Deerfield faculty and staff for their tremendous efforts, care, creativity, and commitment to each and every one of our students.
- Our incredible Deerfield families for their generosity, support, partnership, and trust in our faculty and staff.
- Our WPS administrative team and School Committee for their leadership, guidance, and dedication to our district and town.
