    "All 3 of our children have been here since pre-K. Every year we sit and discuss finances ... is it worth it? The answer is always yes, because... *If for no other reason -- Quaker philosophies (community, spirituality, responsibility and stewardship) guide curriculum. *Top notch teachers in all divisions. *competitive sports teams (4 made the state tournament this year) *challenging academics but students still find time to be kids. IB program is a big plus on college transcripts. Our students learn to write well -- My oldest, who was middle of the road in English at WFS is at a top DIII college, and was recommended to be a writing assistant next year. :) *terrific facilities. *many opportunities for student involvement - government, sports, clubs, etc. *diverse population where over 50% of families (including yours truly) receive financial aid. It's been a great fit for our family and I couldn't be more proud of the student/human beings that WFS has helped us shape."

    "WFS is a magical place. My children have not only learned that they have a voice, but they have learned that their voice is valuable. Academic excellence combined with value-based education is a winning combination. I highly recommend it."

    "The school is poorly run. There are good teachers but most are average. The students were pooled from mixed family backgrounds and school is very tolerant to various aggressive behaviors. The classroom culture thus was affected by a few bad apples. Administration is not doing anything to change the culture unfortunately. It is expected WFS is becoming less and less competitive for the best and brightest students in this area. For the tuition charged, we are better off changing to another private school."

    "I feel so fortunate that my children were able to attend WFS. It has been a transformative experience. Yes, the education was exceptional, but the community is amazing. The staff connects with the students, offers them opportunities, and encourages them to become their best selves! Especially in these times, I think it's so important to have an education grounded in values and I can't think of any better philosophy than one of "that of God in everyone.""

    "Good school, even students with average grades think college is a breeze. student culture is odd due to the size of the school but the people aren't that bad for high school students. administration is terrible, no regard for anything but money, will sweep just any transgression under the rug if the family is invested financially in the school. Teachers are ok, most are in it for the discount it gets their kid on the school but they are educated people and the majority are very invested in their teaching and their students. Quaker values are good and bad, its mixed, somethings are just ridiculous but others can instill pretty good values. Overall its a high school with rich kids, its not gonna differ much from the other Delaware private schools."
