School Notes

  • Friends School serves children ages 12 months through 5th grade. Friends provides half day preschool and kindergarten as well as full day elementary programs and wrap-around extended care services for families in need of full day care. Friends School's small class size and low student to teacher ratio provides the optimum environment for learning. All Lead Teachers are degreed professionals and the entire staff is experienced in working with children of all abilities.
