From New Garden Friends School

New Garden Friends School is the Triad’s only independent preschool through grade 12 school built upon the long-held standards of extraordinary Friends schools. NGFS was founded in 1971 with the goal of educating children from differing backgrounds together in a positive, affirming, and safe environment.

At New Garden Friends School, we are a community of learners. Our students experience critical thinking and experiential learning beyond the classroom. Developmentally appropriate curriculum is introduced at each level and accommodations are made to support and challenge students. We believe in teaching children the importance of service in their communities. Students are challenged to both see themselves as agents of change and to actively engage in the needs of the world around them. We learn together. We work together. We support one another.

We invite you to visit our campus, walk our halls, listen to our students, and see what a NGFS education could mean for your child.

    NGFS fosters a love of learning like no other school! The dedicated teachers; a curriculum grounded in reading, writing and critical thinking; a strong arts and athletic program; dual-enrollment opportunities with Guilford College and the inclusive social curriculum are just some of the advantages it offers its students. My son, who graduated in 2018 and now attends a highly selective liberal arts college in Ohio, gained not only a strong foundation in academics, but also a mastery of violin, and he now plays in his community orchestra. My daughter also discovered her passion for the arts at NGFS by performing in the school's outstanding musical theater program and taking a dance class in middle school. She is now applying to study dance at the college level and has already been accepted at several schools with academic and artistic scholarships. But even more important, NGFS has taught my kids how to lead by example, to give back to their communities, and to be successful in life.

    One of my children graduated and one is still there, I can honestly say they always wanted to go to school. They were appreciated for who they were and they were challenged to not only be good students but to be good people. They particularly loved the many opportunities to be outdoors. One played every sport and the other was engaged in every art and performing opportunity. If you want to feel good about one parenting decision, send the kids to NGFS!
    We have had a great preschool experience! The faculty have been kind, understanding, and helped make the transition to school easy for my daughter. She is so excited to go to school every day and that is the best feeling for a parent.
