About Us

Founded in 1994, Friends School of Wilmington is the choice for families who want an education for their children that will prepare them to lead their lives with wisdom and confidence. FSW is a vibrant learning community that prioritizes simplicity, integrity, equality, peaceful resolution of conflict, and stewardship of the earth. Our students experience school propelled by possibility, motivated by optimism, unrestricted by convention, reinforced by achievement, and guided by principle.
