Deerfield Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
My kids go to Deerfield Elementary and I can't say enough about the caring environment. Small class sizes help students get the help they need, whether that be extra practice or enrichment. Teachers and staff truly care about each and every student that is in the building.
My children have attended this school for five years unhappy. My daughter comes home every day talking about people bullying her and making fun of her little brother. She came home saying that people said she was: constipated, overrated, out of fashion, and a loser. My son has been, kicked , hit , and a lot worse. Not just the schools are terrible, but the neighbors make fun of us and do things that could be reported to the police. If you want to move to a friendly and caring neighborhood, this should not be your choice. Seriously, do yourself and your children a favor. Pick a place that's worth moving to.
I have a hard time believing the comments stating that Deerfield is "clichy". We are "outsiders" as well; moving here 8 years ago. While we tend to lead a more reserved lifestyle, we also help out and get involved whenever/wherever possible in the village. We've never once felt as if we're treated as an "outsider" and have made friends with people who are newcomers and life long residents of Deerfield. We have been blessed with 2 children, and recently became guardians of a family member, all of which are in the school district. We've seen nothing but compassion and empathy from many members of the school district. We've seen individual selfless acts on multiple occasions which we've rarely witnessed in other communities. There are many avenues for both parents and students to become involved at both the athletic and academic levels. The best part being everyone who wants to be involved gets a chance. I'd recommend anyone considering Deerfield, to check it out for yourself. Like many small towns, Deerfield doesn't have everything. The schools (IMO make up for it) Talk to people and decide for yourself. Please don't allow your opinion to be swayed by a few disgruntled posters
I have to agree with the other posts in regards to the town being very clichy. If you didn't grow up here, you do not exist here. My children have attended the elementary school for 3 years now, and even they are still treated as outsiders. It is so strange, I have never experienced anything like it in my life. The majority of the other parents, and teachers as well, won't even take a moment to say hello or smile. My children seem to be receiving a good education, but the town and friendly factor are way off and make us want to move.
Stay away! i agree with the previous parent, Deerfield in a whole as a community is small and if you didn't grow up here you are always an outsider. I for one am glad we moved away that town in poison! The school is ok..if your child is perfect and needs no additional help...so basically they can teach themself. I have no idea where the parent got the 1:14 ratio my kids classes topped 19+. Do your family a favor and pick another town and school district. The people here live in holes and have never left Deerfield and most don't know there is an outside world outside of Deerfield.
