FWS: A Unique Private Cooperative Elementary School
Friends Western School is a community-based elementary school in Pasadena, California 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.

FWS is a wonderful match for our family. Our daughter loves school and we are proud and excited to be members of a community of parents building a values-based environment for our children. We continue to marvel at the high adult-to-child ratio and focused attention to the children's needs throughout the day. Our daughter is thriving as a student and as a whole, well-cared-for growing person."
