Friends Western School is a community based school that values inquiry, participation, examination, and reflection. We believe in each child’s natural curiosity and compassion, and we work with each student to nurture a lifelong love of learning and a strong sense of integrity.

*** Join Us For The 2015/2016 School Year***
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.
