Why I’m Passionate About Quaker Education
Quite simply, for the foundation it sets. A Quaker education supports each student's unique gifts and talents, embodies challenging academics, and encourages students to believe in who they are. Westfield Friends School builds and strengthens the quality of each individual's character. Students recognize the responsibility they have to themselves, one another, and the community.
This Year in My Class
Kindergartners work on building self-esteem, taking risks, and will understand making mistakes is part of their educational journey. We explore the world around us and problem-solve together daily. Students will recognize their strengths and weaknesses and will know they can achieve anything they put their minds to with dedication and hard work.
