At Southfield School, our talented
and experienced faculty cultivate curiosity, character, kindness, and a lifelong love of learning. We do things a little differently around here and it’s one of the reasons we have more than 85 years of outstanding outcomes with our students and alumni. We don’t teach to a test – we have a proven method that works. Our secret is in helping our students find the joy of learning. We believe in creating a partnership between faculty, parents, and students and our students meet our efforts with enthusiasm.
