I'm now 6 years out from graduating from AFS and can confidently say that I wouldn't be where I am today, with a successful career in public service, without my AFS education. It has stayed with me every step of the way and helped propel me into the world with confidence, critical thinking, and poise. AFS' unique approach allowed me to explore myself and the world around me in ways traditional forms of education could not. I am eternally grateful for my AFS experience, and all of the teachers and administrators in particular. I cannot recommend AFS more.
My daughter is enjoying her first year at AFS. She's being challenged academically. The diversity of the student body is one of the top strengths of the school.
Outstanding early education program. Our toddler has advanced emotionally, socially, physically and intellectually. The culture is inclusive and the teachers clearly value each child. This is reflected in the support that the children provide for each other.
This is our first year at AFS and we have been thrilled with the level of education and caring. Our daughter is in Kindergarten. She gets exposed to such a variety of different activities daily and I love that the teachers follow the kids' lead on what interests them. Her teachers are exceptional and we continue to be impressed daily by their genuine care and compassion. The Quaker values are what attracted us to AFS but we have gained so much more. We are confident that our daughter in the right place for her education.
I just graduated from afs and they have instilled so many amazing qualities in me. They strive to make sure that you as a student are the best that you can be. The faculty always seem to have a bunch of tricks up their sleeve to make sure that if you don’t understand something, you learn it in a way that works for you. The facility don’t think that they are above you in any way and the discussion based learning really helped me grasp some hard concepts. Outside of the classroom, the afs theater program has given be the space to do something that I love so deeply. And weather it’s on the sports field of the stage, the community is always there supporting their friends and colleagues. I will miss afs and I know that it has prepared me so well to go off into the world and truly feel comfortable in my own shoes.
Such a supportive and creative community. A community of doers, if you have a dream or an idea, they are there to make it happen.
I have been at Abington Friends School since I was in Kindergarten. I have grown in many ways, but I would like to specifically give credit to my school for stretching me academically. I wouldn't be the student I am today, without the support and encouragement I received at Abington Friends. Abington Friends has also given many opportunities to branch out, I play lacrosse, take part in the theater program and a series of other clubs. Abington Friends also gave me the opportunity to go to Paris, France on a school trip. Needless to say, there are many opportunities, and a lot of room to grow at Abington Friends School.
Great teachers and a very supportive staff. We are so excited that we have the opportunity to be a part of the AFS community.
We are thankful for this community. Seems that decisions are made from the "people first" perspective and during these times this approach is appreciated. The care and consideration of all of the families and friends has proven that we made the right decision of entering this institution. We are happy with our choice and continue to feel supported in this community. Thank you AFS.
AFS has been a perfect, incredible experience for all three of my children. My first two are now in college and both are thriving. They got a great academic preparation for college, but also learned self-sufficiency, leadership, perseverance, and confidence. These and other qualities were fostered in this amazing place, and I am forever grateful for the experience we all, as a family, have had as a part of this school community.
We are extremely fortunate to be a second generation family sending our children to the school we went to as students. AFS has instilled in all of us a strong sense of community unity and an unparalleled education that has met us all where we can be successful in our lives. Myself and the children have had the opportunity to have great public education however I see how we have all thrived in a smaller diverse and creative learning environment.
Its one of the best Friends schools in the North East, I've studied them all—Im thrilled to be a part of this community.
AFS is welcoming and transparent from the very beginning- giving us multiple opportunities to learn about the school through information sessions, open houses, tours and talking to current parents as well as administrators. We love the diverse students and staff, the care and consideration to make a welcoming and inclusive community and thoughtful consideration of curriculum. AFS is built on Quaker values which offers respect, simplicity, values the individual’s unique contribution to the good of the whole, and the importance of silence and appreciation. These are wonderful community building tools to create a safe and nurturing environment where my child is blossoming.
AFS is an amazing school that feels like family. Every teacher strives to meet the student where he or she is and provides the level of support and challenge to help each student reach his or her potential.
AFS has been a fantastic setting for our daughter. She has grown from a socially anxious child into a confident high school student. She has particularly enjoyed the opportunities to express her creativity through the outstanding theater and arts programs.
Abington Friends School has become the perfect place for our kids. Our children are thriving and learning.
My kids are new to AFS this year and we've seen so much growth in them already. They're excited to go to school and come home talking about all the fun ways that they learn during the day. It was amazing to witness how quickly the teachers were able to get to know them and we really appreciate the care and commitment they showed in getting them adjusted to the school.
We switched to AFS after a disappointing Charter School experience. Our wanted a loving environment where our daughter could be celebrated and her curiosity could be nourished. AFS fit the bill. We are so glad we made the switch.
First year and we love it. From the admission process to the first day of school. We have felt very apart of the AFS Family
Very diverse and friendly environment both for parents and students. I will recommend Abington friends school to others. The faculty and staff are very involved and are always ready to help with any issues that I have.
