Mission Statement Rooted in the Quaker testimonies of Simplicity, Peace & Social Justice, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Care for the Earth, United Friends School educates students to meet the rest of their lives with courage and conviction by engaging them in critical inquiry, solution-seeking, and participation in social action. United Friends School nurtures the intellectual, spiritual, and emotional growth of students and guides them to see the Light in themselves and in others. Philosophy Our Quaker focus on the spirit of God in each person is the foundation upon which we build a school community. Our community of students, staff, parents, grandparents, and trustees provides a special opportunity for all to learn, to teach, to serve, and to accept others. Subjects are integrated throughout a developmentally appropriate curriculum to allow students to make connections among project-based, interdisciplinary learning experiences.
