In 1797 the prestigious boarding school Deerfield Academy was founded - today its campus is located in a picturesque place about 100 kilometers from Boston, Massachusetts. The main goal of education here is not only to give the children high-quality academic knowledge, but also to educate independent, responsible members of modern society, to instill in the children leadership qualities and to uncover the unique abilities and talents of each child.
The training is conducted in small classes - this allows the teachers to practice an individual approach, more attentive to the successes and achievements of each child, to quickly notice the difficulties and difficulties in mastering the program. In addition to a large number of interactive classes, teachers emphasize the discussion method of teaching: students do not just bite paragraphs and lectures; they master the material through live discussions, discussions, learn to express and argue their opinion. The total number of students reaches 630 people: about 16% of them are foreigners. Most students choose accommodation (about 88%).
The motto of the Deerfield Academy is written just before the main entrance - "Be worthy of your heritage." They honor the age-old history of the school, its successes and achievements of its graduates, many of whom receive higher education in the most prestigious universities in the United States, members of the Ivy League. Among the most popular universities among graduates are Yale and Harvard, and among the famous pupils of the school are the actor Matthew Fox and the King of Jordan Abdullah, and this is not the whole list.
