Founded in 1994, Friends School is the choice for families of Wilmington who want an education for their children that will prepare them to lead their lives with wisdom and confidence. The Friends School experience stimulates imaginations, engages intellects, strengthens bodies, and enriches spirits. Friends School of Wilmington is an independent school in which girls and boys and women and men share in silence and noise, reflection and debate, with a self-respect and mutual regard that inspires each individual to grow in confidence and strength.
Friends School is a progressive learning community committed to teaching children to find and keep their balance in a changing world. Firmly rooted in enduring Quaker values, Friends School is a vibrant learning community that chooses simplicity, peaceful resolution of conflict, integrity, equality, and stewardship of the earth as a collective and personal responsibility. Friends School students are lovingly educated; they travel to many destinations and experience school as a place that is propelled by possibility, motivated by optimism, unrestricted by convention, reinforced by achievement, and guided by principle.
