Friends School of Wilmington provides students with a variety of activities that supplement and enrich our academic curriculum. Ability and confidence is discovered and nurtured so that children come to see themselves as artists, musicians, linguists, and athletes.
Physical education, communication, art and music are natural parts of children's lives, and all are essential elements of the weekly curriculum. Physical education classes and fitness activities provide opportunities for skill development and cooperative teamwork experiences. Spanish classes stimulate second language acquisition and an appreciation for cultural diversity. Art and music classes help children develop skills for creative expression.
Enrichment expands beyond the classroom into the school's many outdoor areas, the community's arts and recreational facilities and, with aid from technology, into the greater realm of world culture.
