This school has caring teachers who actively try to cluster kids to provide appropriate and challenging materials. They work together to come up with grade level projects that all kids at the same grade are expected to do. Children with additional learning needs are assisted by teacher aides (most of who are credentialed teachers) and/or smaller cluster groups. No school is perfect, but of the 4 teachers we have had, the majority have been extremely caring and effective. The staff is friendly and helpful. The families and the kids are nice and respectful. There are a lot of parent volunteers that care deeply for the students. They promote and reward kids on the" Falcon Five" - 5 core values of the school. Our son has thrived since going to Deerfield, and will now join the APPAS program that will further challenge him academically without having to transfer to another school. We are grateful for this school.

Just three days that my children would normally be in school and they are already wanting to go back. On the eve of Thanksgiving, we are so very grateful to attend Deerfield! Our three year experience, for both kids, has been filled with dedicated and knowledgeable teachers. The front office staff is always welcoming and attentive. Our principal is a one of a kind leader who goes above and beyond for us all. Under her guidance we enjoy a safe, educationally progressive and family friendly experience. The principal and staff model the school characteristics called the Falcon Five and have high expectations for all children. The students here are well behaved, respectful and hard working. PTA tries to be inclusive and does so much to make sure that we can still offer programs and school events for all to enjoy. Parents are very involved and spend much time volunteering. Unfortunately, as with all schools, there are a few sour grapes who constantly complain, but no school is perfect. So thank you everyone at Deerfield that makes this a school where my children would rather be than on vacation!

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.

Deerfield I've been quite disappointed in this school. My kids have had several teachers not go over the material in the book, but the students are still tested on it. Parents grade everything. The excuse of the teachers is that they are too busy to grade their own students' work and tests. Also, you never know what work constitutes your child's grade. The district has a gradelink where it is possible for teachers to input assignments so as parent you get an idea of how your child is doing. Of course, the teachers refuse to use this system because once again they actually have to do some work by inputting the grades. With the exception of a kindergarten teacher who is exceptional, all the rest of the teachers are not involved and just want a paycheck. If you bring concerns to the principal, she just pays lip service, but none of the problems are ever solved. The only reason why this school does so well on state testing is due to the parents, not the apathetic teachers.

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. With a few exceptions, the teachers are clock punchers who seem to care more about their union contract than the kids. There is little discipline in the school, with bad language and rough behavior common on the playground. The principal gossips with the parents and someone should teach her how to use email properly and spell. The test scores may be high but that's because so many parents are sending their kids to Kumon and other programs, and because the APAAS program kids come from other schools. I am almost embarrassed when I talk to my friends at other Irvine schools because their schools do so much more. Wish we'd bought a house in Northwood or Woodbridge instead.

Hi i go to deerfield im the school historian(photographer). Im in Mrs Schweers 5th Grade Class im pleased at the school over haul. Befor some things that they did not tell about the preveous school is that its wood roof every time it rained it leaked the fountains did not hav good pressure and lots of other things but now there all gone an is really nice . Other things like the kids are rude and mean is not true 7 kids during summer helped sevral teachers move in sharpen pencils and help out


Posted November 26, 2011

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 am pleasantly surprised at how little profanity I hear from our kids and their friends compared to my own peer group at that age. I think the Deerfield population is on the whole a very sweet group of kids. The school is currently undergoing a $12M overhaul - a project so massive it will take a full year to complete construction. Classes will be taught at a different school building a mile away during the 2010-2011 year. The teachers have been absolutely first rate - caring and patient in the primary grades, organized and academic in the upper grades.

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.

I did not know what to expect when our child started school this fall. There is a great emphasis on being positive, making sure kids are being encouraged to do their best. PTA is very active and the school staff is very friendly. Only great things to sat about this school.

This school houses the rudest of Irvine people. The students are mouthy with profanity flying every where and the staff are rude to the parents and impatient. I've had my other kids going to other Irvine schools, and in comparasion Deerfield is truly 'ghetto' when it comes to class and structure. I'm so dissappointed and we are doing everything we can so our child does not attend school here next year. To say the least, their API improvement probably has to do with the increasing # of Asians attending the school, not because they care about the quality of child development. This school has too many students in such small campus, understaffed for attention to be given to our children.

Deerfield academics are great, with the APPAS program, but the kids are not very friendly. It is cheap with not that much money, so the equipment is limited.

I am a mother of two boys: a 3rd and a 7th graders this fall.We moved from a different district because of the good review we read about Irvine schools.We did the best thing possible for our boys. I don't know about other schools in Irvine but I can compare Deerfield with other 2 schools from a different area : this is an excellent school, excellent teachers, excellent staff, PTA, environment, everything is great.I recommended this school to everybody I know.If you have your kids starting at Deerfield this autumn be sure that they will get the best education.

What a shame that one of our own would use this anonymous and cowardly forum to slander our principal and put a dark cloud over our incredible school. Yes, Deerfield is a most magical place and very deserving of the National Blue Ribbon award. The ENTIRE staff is so very dedicated, capable and child centered. Also accurate, Mrs. McKeown is very high energy and friendly, however she is also bright, kind, innovative and has brought a restored sense of unity and pride to our school, and let's not disregard the 16 point increase in our API score under her leadership that ultimately earned our award. I would like to suggest that this disgruntled peer take the opportunity to speak directly with Mrs. Mckeown; her staff, community and students know full well how her door is always open and one is always welcome!

Posted February 20, 2008

While the teachers and support staff are wonderful and so deserving of the National Blue Ribbon recognition, I am VERY disappointed in the leadership of the school since Mrs. McKeown arrived. She is high energy, but it seems as though she is never there. And, when she is there, she seems so unprofessional. It seems that she is more interested in being friends with people than doing anything to help the school continue to grow after receiving their recent recognition, which all was in place before she ever arrived, thank God, because if it was based on her work, the state and federal government would probably strip the school of their honors.

It is both a pleasure and an honor to be a teacher at this National Blue Ribbon school. The staff is commited to providing an outstanding education to all the children. There is a cohesive comrardarie between all the teachers and support staff. It is a great community of dedicated and involved parents!

In 2012-2013 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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
