Princeton Friends School

  • More than three centuries ago, Quakers established Friends schools in order to provide an education that would recognize and nurture the spirit in each child within a community of learners.
  • For this reason, Friends schools typically attract students from a wide range of religious, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • Over the years, these schools have maintained a tradition of high quality education, offering supportive environments in which children encounter rigorous intellectual challenges, acquire necessary academic skills, discover outlets for playfulness and creativity, and develop a sense of responsibility to the broader community.
