Friends School has been transformative for our son. Coming from public school, he went from a student/teacher ratio of 27:1 to 8:1. With cool project-based learning, we noticed he was immediately more engaged and positive about school. But the biggest payoff has been seeing him grow academically, emotionally, and socially. His teachers recognize his unique strengths, while nurturing him in weaker subjects, which ultimately fosters newfound confidence. When our son completed fifth grade, he and his classmates all stood up and gave speeches with jaw-dropping grace and poise that went with him into middle school. We're so grateful for Friends School!

Challenging minds. Nurturing spirits. Honoring individuality.
