Principal's Welcome

    Dear Deer Hill Parents, Guardians, and students,

    Welcome to our new website on SchoolWires!  I'm very pleased to be able to offer you this website as a resource for checking in and learning about all the amazing things that go on here everyday.  I'm so fortunate to be the Principal of Deer Hill School, where the community, the staff, and the students are the best!

    The Mission of the Deer Hill School is that we strive to prepare our students for success in the 21st century.  We work to ensure students succeed socially, emotionally, and intellectually.  Throughout our instructional program we emphasize critical thinking, creativity, analytical and technology skills, and we incorporate lessons of collaboration and communication across all curricular areas.  We are committed to providing a safe, respectful and academically challenging environment with clearly defined goals and expectatins.  We strive to develop responsible citizens with an appreciation for diversity, an understanding of global connections, and a passion for lifelong learning.

    We are strongly supported in our efforts by our community.  The Deer Hill Parent Student Organization (PSO) works very hard to provide enrichment programs for our students that promote our rigorous curriculum, to offset costs for high quality instructional materials, to promote our family events, and to support the staff through gestures of appreciation.  The Cohasset Education Foundation (CEF) also works very hard to raise funds for major projects not covered by our school's operating budget.  The CEF has funded such projects as our STEM Lab, technology integration in the classroom, Author in Residence Programs, Orff Instruments for our music program, iPads for teachers, and many other worthwhile and innovative projects.  Both important groups welcome participation from our parents and guardians.

    More information about our programs can be found at this website, which will be updated periodically to include school news, important announcements, upcoming events, and current resources.  Thank you for visiting us!


    Yours truly,


    Jennifer deChiara, Ph.D

    Principal, Deer Hill School
