Deerfield is okay, but not great. Most of the teachers and staff are just average and there are definitely discipline problems. The same kids cause problems over and over and no one seems to care.

In a district with great schools, I have been disappointed by Deerfield. Yes, they improved the building this year, but it is still the same mediocre school inside.

Can't really ask for more from a public school. It's hard to think of anything to complain about. The newly renovated building has been a nice improvement for already great school. Unfortunately for my kids, we'll be moving out of state soon. Hopefully we can find a school this good.

A RARE GEM! I disagree with the parent that posted that the kids are rude and foul mouthed.

I think the Deerfield population is on the whole a very sweet group of kids. ...  Read more

Kuddos to Mrs. Whippo - one of the kindergarten teachers there - She is such a great teacher. She is professional, caring and so supportive. My daughter has learned so much in this last year. The school and office staff are great too. I highly recommend this school.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
