Friends Community School

Friends Community School teaches young people to be life-long learners, courageous risk takers, and joyous peacemakers; to discover that of God within themselves and others; and to reach their fullest potential as individuals and as contributing members of society. A Quaker school, we welcome students of all beliefs, offer developmentally appropriate, experiential and vigorous curricula, and actively express environmental stewardship as a core value.

FCS moved into our permanent "green" home in September 2007. The facility and grounds are adjacent to National Park Service land in Greenbelt. It is a fabulous facility in a spectacular natural setting that has permitted us to expand our academic, extra-curricular and summer programs. And it is the largest known straw bale insulated building in the world!
