They provide kindergarten through high school classes, offering high academic standards as well as an “ethics program” that develops the Quaker values of respect, equality, and non-violence. Their program also includes a 3-year environmental awareness curriculum.  Shadi Othman, the school engineer and project manager and an alumnus, speaks about how the program “builds personality on all levels.”

Scholarships

Because 80% of the Friends Schools’ budget comes from tuition, the cost of tuition is high:  from $1700 to $3000 per year depending on the grade level.  Twenty per cent of the student body get financial aid, all based on need.  No student gets more than 70% tuition assistance.  The school struggles to get enough scholarship funding to assure that less-privileged students have access to the excellent education offered here.

Granted:  $1000 for scholarships in 2017.
