High School Senior: There is a variety of academics at my school. From classes to math essentials, to AP level classes, there are classes for everyone. The teachers are all very educated in their subjects. They know the material very well. Some teachers give more work than others, but it's always a manageable amount. Almost every teacher has a set extra help time or offers it at least once a week, or when needed.

Senior: Small class size, pro-active teachers who are always willing to make time for you. Each HS grade is comprised of approximately 100 students and you know almost everyone in your grade and the entire high school. I learned so much about myself and how fortunate I am as community service is required at Friends. It speaks to one of the underlying Quaker premises of treating others as you wish to treated. Spending time working (cleaning, cooking, food prep and kitchen work) at a Friends Seminary homeless shelter and then in the evening interacting with the men was ENLIGHTENING!

Middle School Student: I love this school! I am currently in sixth grade here, and this is my first year. The staff and kids are so friendly and the school community is the most welcoming.
You do have to wear a uniform which is kind of annoying, but it’s a beautiful uniform and is pretty comfortable.
I wish we had bells for the start of every period and had classes farther apart, which is an odd wish, but I’d like it to be kind of a, “Okay class, head to your classes! See you later!” But, no. Well, we switch for 5-8 graders and the younger grades have specials as well, but we come back in between most classes to homeroom.
Overall, this school is amazing though! I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
(This school is Nursery, Preschool, and K-8, and I know the school profile here says it starts at pre-k, but they have nursery as well.)
