In keeping with the spirit of FCS, our Open Houses are truly “open,” welcoming events. We like to let our school speak for itself. FCS parents greet you at the door and answer questions one-on-one. Usually both Angela Garcia, Head of School, and Connie Belfiore, Director of Admissions and Outreach, present an overview of our progressive academics and Quaker values. If teachers are not in the classroom, they will chime in. Middle School students lead the tours.
We invite you to visit.
