Rooted in the Quaker testimonies of Simplicity, Peace and 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.
Mission Statement of Diversity
United Friends School works to cultivate and nurture an inclusive environment where we can explore, discover, and embrace our differences and similarities in non-judgmental ways. Using the guiding principles of the Quaker testimonies, particularly Equality, United Friends School embodies an atmosphere of equity and social justice.
The exploration of our diverse community and complex world is central to an education at United Friends School. Through our curriculum, culture, practices and policies, we seek to reflect the diverse community in which we live and encourage students to become catalysts for change.
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 learning experiences.
