Welcome to FSW
A place where students are not just learners but explorers, where they are encouraged to question, reflect, create, and grow.
Welcome to Friends School of Wilmington. It brings me great joy to introduce you to our exceptional community. At Friends School, we believe in nurturing young minds with a holistic approach, rooted in Quaker values and progressive ideals. I am thrilled to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you on behalf of our vibrant and inclusive learning community.
Friends School of Wilmington is a place where students are not just learners but explorers, where they are encouraged to question, reflect, create, and grow. Grounded in our Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship, our school encourages students to become compassionate and socially responsible global citizens. We believe that by teaching reflective thinking, we empower students to make a positive impact on the world around them.
At Friends School, we practice experiential learning through inquiry and immersion, sparking students’ curiosity and intrinsic motivation to learn. Our environmental education program is centered around a connection to and understanding of the natural world while promoting a sense of responsibility and stewardship for the environment.
Through engaging teaching methods, our students are encouraged to embrace their curiosity and pursue their passions. Our commitment to our students extends beyond the classroom, as we encourage active community involvement, instilling in our students a sense of responsibility to “Let Their Lives Speak.”
Friends School of Wilmington is a very special place. I encourage you to explore our website and better still, to find time to come and visit. You won’t be disappointed!
