Near the Five Colleges (Amherst, Smith,Mount Holyoke, Hampshire, and UMass Amherst), Deerfield’s 300-acre campus hosts exceptional facilities that enable powerful teaching both in and out of theclassroom. Our students are engaging and excited to learn—and they are willingto work hard at their studies. Outside the classroom, our community is focused on active and ethical living.
Our teachers are committedto ongoing renewal. We seek candidates who are committed to their own professional growth, who are eager towork with colleagues in a productive manner towards departmental goals, and whocan foster critical thinking, empathy, and determination in our students. As aboarding school, our faculty teach, mentor, and model—in the classroom, in thedorm, at the dining hall, and on the playing field.
Diversity is essential to Deerfield’s success. Diverse perspectives within our school population fuel creative and innovative thinking, build empathy and consideration, and provide varied skills and experiences from which the entire community can benefit. Deerfield actively seeks candidates who are members of or support traditionally underrepresented groups—especially in terms of race, sexual orientation, religious, ethnic and socioeconomic background.
