“Lifelong learners, courageous risk-takers, and joyous peacemakers.”
The motto that describes FCS students applies to FCS faculty as well. Daily, our teachers model lifelong learning, courageous risk-taking, and joyous peacemaking. Our faculty and staff have found different paths here, but they all share compassion and an understanding of progressive practice and Quaker values.
“FCS is a community that encourages students to be comfortable with themselves. I didn’t realize how important that is--for students to be able to express who they are and act in a way that is true to themselves--until I came here.”
