School Reviews

FSMH has been such a great place for my two daughters. They have grown from shy and sometimes unfocused children into confident and self-motivated young people who are supremely prepared academically. They love their teachers and also greatly enjoy the extra-curricular programs. There are so many opportunities for children of varying aptitude to participate on their athletic teams and in the drama program.

We love FSMH. We have three children in this school. Friends School offers an incredible academic program. We really like that its a Quaker school so simplicity and service are a big part of school life. Even in pre-school they learn that there are people less fortunate then them and have service projects to help. We looked at a lot of schools before we found Friends School Mullica Hill. In your search for schools, FSMH is a must see !!!
