    "Our daughters preschool teachers are the two most wonderful teachers I have ever come in contact with in schools. The kindness and acceptance they have shown for not only our daughter but every other student is above anything a parent could wish for. Our daughter is very sensitive, struggles with new situations/transitions, and fears the unknown. We knew that this year was going to be a great growing step for her (sometimes painful for us!) but we knew she was in the right place. Up until this past week, she cried each day that we left in the morning. But knowing that she was in a very safe place, having teachers that care about her as much as we do, and friends that would give her hugs each day, made this parting almost easy . Jessie and Hetta would either run out to the parking lot to give us the thumbs up to say she was doing great, or a short phone call to let us know how she was doing. I am so proud to say that both of our children have had this most amazing experience at Friends . Outstanding leadership throughout with the Head of School, Steve DeBeer, and the culture of the school is outstanding. There is NO place better for the beginning of a child's education."

    "Friends' School has been absolutely wonderful for our whole family. We started out with our oldest in the preschool, and we had planned to send all our kids to public school. But the preschool experience was so excellent that we just had to continue. When our youngest starts preschool next year, we will have all three of our kids in Friends' School! Friends' School is very strong academically, but that's just a small part of the story, and not what makes it so special. The teachers and the staff are amazing. They are all obviously passionate about children and teaching, and care deeply about doing what is best for the children. They keep up on the latest research for childhood education, and they thoughtfully apply the best of what they find. Another thing that sets Friends' School apart is the consideration of the whole child ("Head, Heart, and Hand"). Our children came in to Friends' School having some difficulty with social situations. The teachers make sure that the students learn to be compassionate and inclusive, and also have helped encourage our kids to be more proactive in forming new friendships. It helps that they have at least 2 teachers per classroom!"

    "Enrolling our 2 children at Friends' School has been the best decision that we have made as parents. We are reminded on a daily basis about this decision because our children are happy and thriving socially, emotionally, and academically. Friends' School is unique because both the preschool and elementary teaching staff integrates experiential learning, creativity, and social-emotional lessons into daily planning. We have noticed that our daughter in the elementary building has become a passionate, curious, and deep thinking learner. We believe this is because the staff at Friends' School has created a safe, friendly, and non-judgmental learning environment where children are encouraged to think outside of the box. Not only are they learning how to be mindful individuals, our whole family has benefitted from the philosophy at Friends'. We have attended multiple parent education workshops that have enriched our lives with our children outside of the school setting. We feel very fortunate to be a part of this wonderful community. Thank you Friends'!"

    "I cannot say enough positive things about Friends'. My daughter has only gone to preschool there and is going into Pre-K this year. We previously went to another school before Friends' and had an awful experience. My daughter hated the other school, but when we started Friends' school, she loved it so much, if she had a sick day, she would cry and cry because she didn't want to miss one day of school. The teachers are incredible and truly take every issue into consideration and really care about your child. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this school."

    "I have been a teacher for the past 18 years, and feel incredibly blessed to have spent the last 9 years at the Friends' School. The first part of my career was in public schools, and although I loved that time, once I landed at Friends' I knew I was home. My fellow teacher are the most dedicated, intelligent, kind individuals I have every been blessed to work with. Every staff member has a growth mindset and is continually striving to make their own teaching stronger. That in turn helps their students succeed, and models for students and parents that we are all learners. My own two daughters attended this school, and both gained so many gifts beyond just academics. Friends' is really a very special place for parents, teachers, and students."
