Recently transferred out my sophomore year due to a family job change. Can honestly say Dexter Southfield has been one of the best experiences of my life. Close community, everyone knows one another, great kids- not cliquey or gossipy as my new school is, faculty is awesome- many have been there since the 70's and specifically in high school you develop great relationships with your teachers. Campus is unreal. Awesome facilities. Great headmaster. Amazing school.

Without question the best private high school in New England. The academics and pursuit of excellence are unrivalled by other schools, new or old. Dexter Southfield truly cares about its students, and passionately fosters their intellectual and personal growth. Not only do the boys and girls receive the best education possible, but they are also very happy. The world class facilities are such that other schools frequently come to use them. The school's motto Our Best Today, Better Tomorrow can be seen in beautiful evolution as it crafts the leaders and scholars of tomorrow.

This school relies heavily on memoratization and rote learning. It employs little creativity and turns out little robots. The headmaster hasn't had a new idea in about 50 years. No parental involvement. Beautiful campus but no soul.

Each year, more and more students arrive and make wonderful contributions to our already talented and diverse student body. Last year the school hosted four foreign exchange students, from the Ukraine, Brazil, and South Korea respectively. Classes are still small however, so the student gets the maximum amount of attention they require, and the student-teacher relationship is kept close. Last years' High School production of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court was a huge success, and the choirs and ensemble performed several times. We now also have several varsity sports teams, and I love that each girl participates on an interscholastic team, whether varsity or not. As a parent I am wholly satisfied with Southfield, as is my daughter.

Southfield is a great school that has a traditional curriculum of three years of Latin starting in 6th grade and offers French and Spanish. Southfield has been a great experience for my daughter and still is today. She likes her teachers and has excelled well. This school also offers a wonderful science program.
