Princeton Friends School Reviews
Princeton Friends is a small school that focuses on community and educating the whole student. Teachers really know my children not only in the context of the classroom, but socially, creatively, and emotionally as well. Many positive changes have been happening lately, including the expansion of the nurse's hours and the addition of a counselor for students, so some past reviews may not have up to date information.
No full time nurse. No health education by health educators. No school counselor or school social worker or psychologist. Teachers have asked for a counselor and head of school refuses.
Few after school; most at lunch time makes it awkward for students to eat and do clubs. Seems stuck in the 1980s.
Administration is very poor, resistant to change, doesn't support teachers or families. School has gone downhill dramatically in past few years. Many unhappy families and teachers.
A few standout teachers. Many are either outdated in their practices or not strong in their subject areas.
The school focuses on preserving a community feeling and as such there is little to no bullying. The school is very safe and has many emergency plans.
The school and administrators are very kind to incoming applicants, they work with the parents and children to make sure it's the right school for them. Academics requirements are not excessively difficult at all. Financial aid is available.
