Plymouth Meeting Friends School

We are an independent Quaker school, guiding children in their most formative years of Pre-K (age 3-5) through 6th grade to become lifelong learners.
In an environment of social-emotional security, students develop their curiosity into academic risks and growth.
We preserve childhood while preparing students to leave PMFS as creators, thinkers, collaborators, global citizens, and problem-solvers.
Located just northwest of Philadelphia 1/2 of our students come from Northwest Phila; 1/2 from Montgomery County (School district busing is available for areas within 10 miles of PMFS).
