Friends School of Baltimore

Friends School is the best choice for families of Baltimore who want for their children an education that will ready them to lead their lives with wisdom and confidence. The Friends School experience stimulates imaginations, engages intellects, strengthens bodies, and protects spirit. It is a school that gives its students the time and the place in which to build the foundation of a happy, prosperous and contributive life. Friends is an independent school in which girls and boys, women and men share in silence and noise, reflection and debate, with a self-respect and mutual regard that allows all to grow ever stronger and truer to themselves. The oldest school in one of America’s foundational cities, Friends School of Baltimore is a progressive community of learning; its commitment to balance in education the product of centuries of work teaching children to find and keep their own balance in a world that is forever changing. Firmly rooted in the enduring values of the Quakers, today’s School is a vibrant, 21st Century learning community that chooses simplicity over material possession; peaceful resolution of conflict over aggression; integrity over expedience; equality over elitism; and stewardship of the earth as a collective and personal responsibility. Friends students are lovingly educated; they go many places and do many things, each propelled by possibility, motivated by optimism, unrestricted by convention, reinforced by achievement, and guided by principle.
