Social Curriculum

FSW utilizes a comprehensive social curriculum that helps us create a safe, warm, productive, academically challenging school environment rooted in the Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and service.  Our social curriculum is inspired by the book, Teaching Children to Care: Classroom Management for Ethical and Academic Growth, K-8 by Ruth Sidney Charney, the Responsive Classroom approach to community building in schools, and Developmental Designs in the 6th-8th grades.
