School Notes

  • Since 1957, Westbury Friends School has been recognized for fine academics as well as a whole-child approach to intellectual and moral development. Students are encouraged by word and by example to respect the talents and perspectives of others and include them in a cooperative search for knowledge. WFS believes that education is preparation for the whole of life: the development of intellectual, physical, and social-emotional capacities as well as those of the spirit. WFS teachers are facilitators of the learning process, using dialogue, reflection, and inquiry tools for learning in the classroom.
