FSMH is a wonderful school that helps develop the unique academic potential in each student, while fostering values and expanding world-views. This school holds a special place in my heart for the start it gave my son on his journey to being the fine young man he is today.

We had two children graduate from FSMH after attending each for 10 years. They both entered High School being put in advanced placement classes in Math, Science, History and Spanish based on the academic preparation Friends School provided. The teachers take an active interest in the student's growth, both academically and socially. Extracurricular activities kept both them both busy and a basis for future growth. For example, our Son started Violin in first grade and continued until 6th grade to transfer to guitar. As a Junior in high School, he is now an accomplished musician, able to play multiple instruments.

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 !!!
