Virginia Beach Friends School

  • "My son's confidence, especially in writing and math has soared, as has his curiosity and desire to delve into what appears on the surface to be insoluble.
  • He has gained confidence in expressing what resides within all of us, but which often goes unspoken.
  • You allowed free expression, encouraging his compassion to blossom, his desire to be a peacemaker to be expressed, his gentleness to be respected, his competitive spirit to emerge -- and not restricted to "winning." What greater gift could you have possibly given me " Parent of 8th grade student.
