I wanted to like this school. I really did. But the bullying problem at this school is a major issue. The kids treat each other horribly. The teachers let this behavior happen, and multiple times, there were no consequences for the kids who were the bullies. When the teachers tried to intervene, they ...  Read more

When I first registered my child a few years ago I had such high expectations. Somehow in the back of my mind I knew I would be disappointed. And guess what... I am.

This is the best school our children and grandchildren have ever gone to. A challenge for the gifted student, but nurturing for those that need a little more.

We are excited to have ...  Read more

I have one child enrolled at Derby and one child going there next year. I love derby and all the teachers that go along with it. I think one of the most special things that derby has is the sports program. For students in fourth and fifth grade, the class called 'sports' is one of the highlights of their ...  Read more

I went to Derby academy. I must say, the academics were worse than the public school alternatives. It wasnt worth it academically. In terms of music, art, and sports, it was nothing special. The sports options were limited and not particularly intense, the arts program was about the same as any public ...  Read more

We have three children enrolled at Derby and we could not be more pleased with this school. At the Lower School, students are encouraged to achieve at the highest possible level, but they are never left behind. At the middle and upper schools the course load increases, but support is always available ...  Read more
