Developing a Social Conscience

The cornerstone of the Friends educational model is the belief that our students' quality of character – what kind of people they are becoming – is vital to their intellectual growth. 
From Preschool through 8th grade, our students grow in knowledge and are filled with the best qualities of mind and spirit: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship. Within our community of learners, our faculty strives to bring out each student's individuality, working to develop creative thinkers, problem solvers, peacemakers, and humanitarians who will contribute compassionate, responsive, and responsible leadership throughout their lives.
The Middle School Student Government has been active this school year in raising funds through their bake sales and Movie Night.  
They have deliberated on and have now selected two charities to donate to from raising these funds. Thank you to all parents and guardians who helped make this possible.
UNICEF, specifically for children affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.
Women Against Abuse
Women Against Abuse, for racial justice and education to help prevent domestic violence.
