COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:
In service to our community, our Return to School Task Force has been hard at work all summer in preparation for our school opening, starting August 17, 2020. We are guided in all things by our mission, by directives from the national, state, and public health officials and by balancing the safety of our students and staff with delivering our comprehensive education program.

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.
Westfield sustains education in a COVID world
In our distance learning program, faculty are dedicated to supporting families and students by providing structure, continuing all areas of their students' educational progress, and supporting their student's social and emotional well being. We have successfully translated our many community-building activities into our distance learning program as well.

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!
