This is a place that truly cultivates a love of learning in its community, celebrates each child's gifts, and offers loving guidance on things that need improvement. So thrilled to partner with such a special place." ~Derby Parent, 2015
The Derby Community
For Derby parents, "back to school" takes on a whole new meaning. Derby is, above all else, a community - one that emphasizes the participation of students, staff, and parents. Whether you join a Pre-Kindergarten class for a cooking lesson, chaperone a Middle School class trip, or work behind the scenes at the Derby Fall Fair, you'll have ample opportunity to contribute to your child's learning environment, and to become a member of a unique community.
Throughout the school year, the Derby community has numerous parent-inclusive events. From September's Curriculum Nights, which allow you a glimpse at your child's new classroom and a chance to greet other parents, to June's Derby Day processional and the sweet closure it brings to the school year, you can participate in the full range of experience that Derby offers.
You may be surprised to find that your child's school community becomes an important part of your world, too.
