From Headmaster Gordon Walker:

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Southfield School website. I have had the privilege of serving on the Southfield administration for the past 15 years, and I am delighted to share some of our rich history, as well as our current and ongoing efforts to build upon this school's distinguished legacy and many unique qualities and attributes. Here you will find information about our program of study, the many people who make up our superbly qualified faculty, staff and administration, and the unique accreditations and memberships that link Southfield to the very finest independent schools throughout our region and country.

Southfield is a warm and friendly environment where a core commitment to academic excellence blends gracefully with equally strong traditions of pursuing excellence in character, an appreciation for the arts, and the development of well-rounded young people who thrive on challenges and opportunities in all areas of life.

At the same time Southfield holds itself to the very highest standards of transparency, accountability, and self-improvement. Our accreditations demand nothing less and they ensure that Southfield is always on the march toward ever higher plateaus of educational excellence.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about any aspect of what Southfield has to offer, and welcome to our special community.

Sincerely,
Gordon Walker
Headmaster
