Principal's Message

Dear Defer Families,

As the new principal of Defer Intermediate School, I welcome you to the start of the 15-16 school year! I am eagerly anticipating a successful and rewarding year, and I look forward to working with the dedicated faculty/staff, parents and community to provide an exceptional educational experience for the students of Defer.

As we focus our efforts daily on academic success, we encourage all vested members to join us in recognizing and supporting lifelong learning. 

I recognize the start of school can signal feelings of both excitement and trepidation, and I thank you for entrusting your children to the Defer faculty/staff. We do not take lightly our responsibility in ensuring your children experience a highly-engaging educational experience in a safe and nurturing environment. We are thrilled to partner with our families as they embark on the next leg in their children’s academic journey.

I am excited and honored to join the Defer family for what I know will be an amazing school year. Those who know me know that I truly have an open door policy, and I welcome your questions, concerns, and input at any time.

Proud to be an Rocket,

Jeffery S. Keruski
