Princeton Friends School Reviews

We live in a highly-rated public school district and I am always asked why we choose a private education. We found that Princeton Friends School provides an equivalent level of academic challenge and rigor as our public school but exceeded our expectations in equipping our daughter with the necessary self-knowledge and EQ skills. Social-emotional development is on equal footing with academic accomplishments at PFS, which is so critical in order to thrive in this increasingly complex, polarized, multi-cultural, risk-filled 21st Century.

The student body is diverse; class sizes are small and our daughter has become an empathetic, curious community member. We could not be happier.

We found PFS when our daughter was just five years old, a reserved and shy child who often had difficulty in larger groups advocating for herself. Nine years later, my confident, wise, and academically gifted child had found her voice and so much more, thanks to Princeton Friends School. The focus on empathy in education is so lost in many academically rigorous schools. There is much school choice in our area, and the public schools are excellent, but I would never change the investment we made into our daughter's PFS education. There is a creativity in thinking that blossoms when a child is heard, challenged in a encouraging way, and allowed to express themselves safely at a school with gifted teachers. My child learned creativity and critical thinking skills at PFS and has gone on to excel in public high school. More importantly, she is still the PFS student who notices the person in the room who is uncomfortable or who needs a kind word or gesture.
I like that my son gets a dose of progressive Quaker education every day at PFS. He's encouraged to find his voice through writing, story telling, and theater. He's exposed to interdisciplinary thinking through the school's Central Study program, learns to collaborate and take risks, and, because it's a Friends school, attends silent meeting once a week and exercises and implements our best instincts through a commitment to social justice. He reads and discusses literature, does math past my understanding, and wades into the Stony Brook in science lab. I'm proud of the young man he's becoming and I think the school has a lot to do with it.
