    My children both attend Deerfield Elementary School and we love it. Principal Salazar is fantastic and the rest of the team is as well. We've also had truly wonderful teachers who really seem to understand each classmates individual personality. Parents are extremely engaged as well.

    Deerfield Elementary is one of the best elementary schools in New Jersey. Not only do we have a compassionate devoted and kind principal...but the faculty is top in it's profession. The curriculum is excellent and everyone goes above and beyond to provide an excellent learning experience for our children.

    This school has really helped my child with his reading disability. Great Special education department! We have experience with another so called top district that did not help my child the way he needed so we moved to the millburn district. Deerfield is top notch!
