    "We selected this school to help prepare our daughter for higher education and and the importance of free thinking. Unfortunately, the faculty point of view on worldly issues is very one sided and short sighted. This is not the kind of education we had hoped for"

    "Applying to high school, I was a little concerned about leaving all of my friends from middle school who were going elsewhere. But I was excited to start at Friends Select, which felt like home from the open house. I couldn't have made a better decision I have made amazing friends, am enjoying the refreshingly challenging classes, and feel completely accepted every day I go to school. I have maintained some friendships from middle school, and those friends fit perfectly in my new group at school. The teachers are exceptional and always willing to help or discuss ideas. The classes are fun, interactive, and flexible while remaining rigorous. There's a strong sense of community among the students, teachers, and administrators. I couldn't love a school more."

    "Friends Select gave me a great education. Friends Select is an inclusive school that gave me a quality education. I feel socially and academically prepared for college. They need to fix their theater though!"

    "Although the teachers are nothing short of amazing, I believe the administration at the school could be better since it seems like they prioritize the school's reception to the outside and often not the students."

    "The teachers at Friends Select are without a doubt my favorite things at the school. They're super easy to talk and are willing to help you whenever they can."
