Transition from Public School to Deerfield
Hi. My son was just accepted at Deerfield - yay! He currently attends a public school where he has a 4.0 with mostly honors classes. However, his workload really isn't tremendous - if he has more than an hour on any given night, I'm surprised. Can anyone comment on transitioning from public school to Deerfield's rigorous curriculum? Also, do the teachers encourage extra help and developing relationships outside of the class? My son may be outgoing when playing sports, but shy when it comes to asking for help in the classroom - typical boy I guess! Thanks!
