The World We Seek for Children Begins Here.

While Friends schools are renowned for their outstanding academics, the cornerstone of the Friends educational model is built upon the notion that our students' quality of character – what kind of people they are becoming – is as vital as their intellectual growth. From Preschool through 8th grade, our students grow in knowledge and are filled with the best qualities of mind and spirit: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship. Our faculty strives to bring out each student's individuality, working to develop creative thinkers, problem solvers, and humanitarians who will contribute responsive and responsible leadership throughout their lives.
Westfield Friends School has created and maintains an inclusive and equitable community that is safe and welcoming for all. We teach respect, affirmation, and protection of the dignity and worth of each member of our community and the world at large.

    This school has prepared my daughter for primary school. The school and its staff are exceptional. My daughter was a student of Mrs. Marrazzo's preschool class and she absolutely flourished as a result of Mrs. Marrazzo's teaching. I would highly recommend this school to any of my friends and family. Small class sizes, teaches REAL math, teaches how to be a good person using the tenants of the Quaker religion (while still feeling secular), abundant arts program, yoga offered and field trips - everything I could have asked for! Plus they started "income based tuition" which has made the educational experience more financially accessible to my family.

    We recently transitioned our daughter to Westfield and are very pleased with every aspect of the experience and school. The administration, teachers and parents have all been very helpful and caring to ensure a smooth transition. The academics and values are a true differentiator. We are also very pleased with the diversity and inclusive environment. Westfield Friends is a true gem!
    Westfield Friends is such a special place for me as a parent of alumni and a teacher. I love coming to school and work where there is a strong sense of community with a caring staff, and involved parents. Students are eager to learn and realize their potential in a discovery and inquiry-based approach.
    It is fun for me to work with them as they explore challenges and achieve their goals. I love watching them as they recognize that they are capable and have an active role in their education!
