Friends Community School: What's in a name?
As a Quaker school, we believe that intellectual education and moral education are integrally connected. Our core Quaker values — simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship — are embedded in our curriculum and our interactions with each other.
As a community, we are diverse and inclusive. We support one another in our day-to-day activities and in our larger endeavors as lifelong learners, courageous risk takers, and joyous peacemakers.
As a progressive school, FCS focuses on educating the whole child: socially, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, and creatively. We recognize that children learn best from experience and meaningful relationships with peers and teachers. Our teachers meet students where they are and — through experiential and inquiry-based lessons, a child-centered curriculum, collaborative projects, and intentional reflection — promote deep learning.
