Sidwell Friends School Reviews

My four years at Sidwell Friends School have been truly life-changing. In addition to challenging academics and incredible facilities/resources, the faculty and staff truly care about their students' success. I have had many opportunities to pursue research across all disciplines and to explore new subjects in depth. A Sidwell student learns to naturally take initiative, solve problems critically, and collaborate with peers and teachers periodically. I do not think I would have felt as prepared for college coming from another school in the area. In addition, the people at this school are some of the most compassionate and insightful people I have met. Thank you for everything, Sidwell!

Sidwell Friends School has been an amazing place to foster my intellectual growth. Sidwell is a Quaker school and Quaker values (especially community and integrity) are very present within the school environment. Students are very involved in the school community and participate in various activities including club, plays, athletics, orchestra, chorus, and jazz. Teachers are always available to help and foster students that are sensible, compassionate and bright. At Sidwell I have been surrounded by students that genuinely care about whats going on the world around them, want to change the world, and are using their education to do so.
I had a wonderful experience at Sidwell. I was surrounded by peers of all sorts of backgrounds- economical, racial, sexual orientation, and religion! There I was able to understand who I wanted to be and what I wanted to represent. The school was also extremely supportive of everything and anything students did with criticisms on the school and society as a whole. I really do appreciate everything the school has done and given me.
