Both of my daughters attend Deerfield and we simply love this school! We have had fantastic teachers and the low class size is a big advantage. My daughters both are top of their classes and their test scores are easily above the state average because of the great teaching they receive. My girls get Art Gym three times a week Library and Music. There is an IPad lab in their classroom. They both bring home a variety of projects that are very cool. The homework isn't overwhelming but there is a lot of it. The girls go on field trips stay for evening activities and they love Lunch Bunch with their teachers once every 2 weeks. Because the school has recently been re-zoned only children who live on the peninsula attend here making the environment lovely. We've never encountered any bullying what so ever. Dismissal and morning drop off are very organized. Everyone knows us and the communication is great. It's a great neighborhood school.

Love love love this school! Don't believe the hype surrounding the Edgewood area. Great community with great people. You get what you give in life. Good parents have good kids. This school has a first class morning drop-off routine. The teachers are awesome.
My daughter started 4th grade this school year at Deerfield and she LOVES it. I love the friendliness and helpfulness from the staff. My daughter is coming from another school so I was scared that it would be hard for her to adjust but it wasn't. The kids are and fun and so are the teachers. Every week she comes home with her learning plan and I must say I am impress. Thumbs up.
My son will start second grade this fall. He loves this school. The staff has been great his teachers so far have been wonderful. Communication from the school is generally very good. Communication from his teachers has been excellent. Dropping off kids in the morning seems more orderly than dismissal but there are 800+ students! The curbside service in the morning when dropping off a car-rider is very nice! Side notes about comments Everyone is entitled to their opinion(s). That is what these boards are for. If your post looks and sounds like it was written by an elementary school student or a texting teenager it is hard to take it seriously. Sorry if that is offensive but if you want people to take your comment(s) seriously please make it intelligible. Sorry for the rant.
I used to think that this school is not that bad even though the test scores never met the state standards. Then we moved and saw wht does it feel to be in a school that actually meets the standards. THIS IS THE ONLY SCHOOL THAT did not check at dismissal as which child is going to which parent. then just go volunteer during the lunchtime and you will know what am I talking abt. when ur kid asks for the restroom they will be asked to hold. if there's a kid crying and needs to go to the nurse she will be ignored. if ur kid opens his dorrittos and mrs warfield hears a pop then there u go her eyeballs are gng to give tht poor kid nightmares for DAYSSS. THE PRINCIPLE is full of her self just read her newsletters u will read 2 pages abt herself with hardly a page wbt the school. PTA is non-existent. your child's word work is scheduled at the end of the day when all of their energy is drained. other schools have it at the beginning of the day when ur child mind is the most active.I have literally seen kids fighting and bullying almost everyday in this school!!
I'm really surprised by the rating. This school is a good school even though it's in edgewood. The administration cares about the students and encourage parental involvement. My son is in band and in an afterschool program called GEMS. His teacher is one of the best teacher's he's had all since he entered grade school.
I think that Deerfield is a wonderful school. My children are receiving a wonderful education and their teachers really show that they care about them.
Actually I was surprised by the rating of this school. My daughter attends deerfield and is very proud of her school she's doing great and loves art gym and media. The teachers are hard workers and the principal is the best. She's trying to make changes to improve the state scores. Unfortunately the community sometimes don't make a good effort to make things better and I don't thing parent's are involved enough and sometimes are not the best example for their kids.
