    I was lucky enough to attend AFS for 10 years and can honestly say that all divisions--lower, middle, and upper--provided me with a fantastic education not only academically, but also in kindness and community. AFS's commitment to Quaker values is strong and real, and it comes through clearly in the curriculum and the ways in which material is presented. Over my years at AFS, it has become clear to me that equality, diversity, and respect for the individual are at the center of the school's mission. Yay AFS!

    The preschool has been a magical land of learning for my four year old. She has thrived in this environment where she claims that her teacher is her best friend. She loves the playground, the assemblies, the resource classes and performing on stage each semester. She has been emerged into different subjects such as construction and building and the solar system and planets. She writes so well and can speak to adults clearly and articulately. Her love of reading and writing has expanded and she just loves to tell people what she is studying!
    I started at AFS when I was in the third grade. I spent 7 years at AFS and I wouldn't have changed a thing. The school was inclusive and diverse. My teachers pushed me in the right directions and were always available to talk when I was struggling either academically or personally. Because of the teachers at AFS, I was able to attend a University that I fell in love with and have had a very successful 4 years there. AFS taught me integrity, perseverance, respect and self-motivation. I highly recommend attending this school!
