Inquiry-Based Learning

As FSW students move through our inquiry based program, they learn to read actively, to write clearly and persuasively, to listen thoughtfully, to think critically and compassionately, and to act responsibly in a rapidly changing world. Students and teachers learn with and from one another, growing from a willingness to venture from their comfort zones into their learning zones. Together, they create a vibrant community of learners, engaging in what Quaker educator Parker Palmer calls “an eternal conversation about things that matter, conducted with passion and discipline."
