General School Mission

"Friends School seeks to live the conviction that there is that of God in each person. This conviction guides all teaching and personal interchange. Because Friends values diversity, we cherish our differences and view them as opportunities for learning. All members of the community strive to work together toward the best development of individual and group potential in a co-educational environment that is inclusive, respectful, and supportive of all people.

Quaker education is a pilgrimage - a seeking after Truth that is not static or fixed, but is in a continual state of fulfillment. Friends endeavors to be a learning community for both students and employees. It needs and seeks the support and cooperation of all members of the School community - students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, and friends - in achieving its goals. The School values its freedom to experiment and to enter fields of controversy. The School cherishes simplicity, reflection, meditative concern, and hope - values that permeate every aspect of Friends School life and which are most directly practiced in regular Meeting for Worship.

Friends is a college preparatory school and has developed a Pre-K-12 program intended to be most effective for young people who will prosper in an enriched and challenging academic environment. All divisions of the School work to achieve a joyful, nurturing, child-centered community that fosters a variety of age-appropriate experiences. The School believes that it should educate for the whole of life and that its intellectual environment should foster the development of fulfilled and morally informed individuals.

Friends School believes that through self-awareness, growth, and service to others, that of God in each person is made manifest.
