Cambridge Friends School Reviews

I can't say enough about how great Cambridge Friends School has been for our family. Each and every teacher my kids have had has been AMAZING, and the parent community is an incredible group of people. I appreciate that CFS truly does focus on the individual needs of each kid. I like the small class size and project based learning. I strongly value the focus CFS places on social justice, not just in words but in practice. And as a queer family, I appreciate that our family has not only been accepted but celebrated. Different family structures have been included in classroom experiences from the beginning, and my kids attend "Rainbow Kids" with other kids from queer families. My kids have always had peers and teachers reflecting their own experience, something I am grateful for! CFS is a school like no other - I am grateful to be part of such a wonderful community!

This has been an excellent school for my children.

The teaching methods are carefully chosen, progressive, and effective. The teachers have been really good about paying attention to who they are teaching, as individuals, and helping my kids to learn in their own ways. Overall, they keep learning fun, and keep the curiosity in the kids, where it belongs.

The school's strong and explicit focus on social justice, community, and anti-bias education have been really inspiring to me, and have made it possible for me to have amazingly sophisticated conversations with my kids about society.
Related to this, there is very intentional work to support diversity in the community, so that every child's different indentities and challenges are supported.
Our family has been at Cambridge Friends School for almost 5 years now, and our youngest child just enrolled in the preK/K classroom this year. CFS is a very warm and supportive community, strongly grounded in social justice. Both of my children are engaged in their classrooms and have benefited from the project-based learning approach. I am so grateful to the outstanding teachers we have had each year. I'm proud of the people my children are becoming - from preK/K onward, they are learning about equity, fairness, privilege, human rights, and environmental stewardship. These values are embedded in the academic curriculum and also put into practice daily on the playground and during community time, when children learn how to resolve differences, challenge each other, and use their voices to speak out for themselves and others.
