At Friends School, we not only prepare our students for the next step in school – we prepare them to make a positive difference in the world.
Friends School values all learners. Our creative, academically challenging, safe environment allows every student from preschool through 8th grade to be seen, known, and loved. Small class sizes allow us to know each student fully, meet them where they are as learners, and help them to know themselves and set their own path.
Our purpose and values influence everything we do, from how we teach math and the way we schedule our classes to the kinds of activities students engage in at recess and how we plan our learning spaces. Friends students enter the world as prepared, thoughtful, kind, genuine, self-advocating, confident, and empathetic citizens.
We invite you to discover why so many of Boulder County’s families have chosen Friends School since 1987: Challenging minds, nurturing spirits, and honoring individuality.

What would I change? Give the school and the dynamic new head, Honor Taft, more financial resources to boost the classrooms, preschool through 8th grade, and keep doing all that they do best!
