Watch our newest video to learn more about why we love this special community of children, teachers and parents!
Friends Western School is committed to a diverse and open environment with families of all faiths and no faith. We foster mutual respect and exploration of our differences in order that our children will evolve and grow into young people with highly developed life skills, able to sustain complex thinking. Quakers value independence, integrity and curiosity and we follow a course that nurtures these traits in our children.
Quakers have long valued education and we are honored to be part of a heritage that includes Bryn Mawr College, Swarthmore College, Cornell University, Sidwell Friends and many other highly respected schools and universities. Friends Western School was founded in 2001 and is recognized by the Friends Council on Education.
We hold the distinction of being the first co-operative Quaker school in the United States.
Friends Western School's Mission
- Foster academic inquiry and learning through divergent thinking.
- Encourage and honor each child’s individuality and unique gifts.
- Prepare children to use their knowledge with creativity and compassion.
- Nourish a diverse and engaged community of teachers, children and parents.
FWS is a vibrant school community where teachers, children and parents altogether are engaged learners taking a conscious role in each child’s education both socially and academically.
FWS students graduate as confident and capable self-sufficient learners with the 21st century skills of collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. Our children experience community on multiple levels: family, school, neighborhood and the natural world, becoming mindful global citizens. We balance direct instruction and discovery so that learning becomes intrinsically rewarding.
