We are a creative, challenging, safe environment where every student from preschool through 8th grade is seen, known, and loved. Small class sizes allow us to know each student fully for who they are, meet them where they are as learners, and help them to know themselves and set their own path.
Friends students are challenged academically and prepared to enter the world as thoughtful, kind, genuine, self-advocating, confident, and empathetic citizens. Friends provides a strong balance of rich academic and social emotional curriculum with an emphasis on character development that allows our graduates to successfully transition into any high school environment. Our students not only learn the importance of a social emotional education, they actually LIVE it.
Parents delight in seeing their child come home from school each day thriving in the joy of learning, the excitement to return to school the next day, and the discovery of knowing themselves well.
