An eternal conversation about things that matter, conducted with passion and discipline.

Here at FSW, academic excellence is infused with the spirit of inquiry and a passion for lifelong learning. Our curriculum draws from nationally recognized, research-based programs in reading & writing (Columbia University’s Teachers College Reading & Writing Project; Orton-Gillingham) and mathematics (University of Chicago’s Everyday Mathematics Program; Michigan State University's Connected Mathematics ), as well as thematically scaffolded social studies and science units.

Our enrichment subjects uplift Spanish language immersion, artistic creativity, musical expression, and physical education, nurturing well-rounded individuals who thrive in both academic and extracurricular pursuits. Our dedicated teachers are expert facilitators, guiding students on a journey of discovery, critical thinking, and problem-solving through hands-on, experiential learning opportunities. As Quaker educator Parker Palmer wisely states, classrooms are an "eternal conversation about things that matter, conducted with passion and discipline."

Here, your child will experience more than just a standard education; they will immerse themselves in a community that fosters independence, exploration, and a profound love for learning. Our vibrant educational environment is where every child's unique potential is recognized and celebrated, igniting a joy of discovery that will accompany them throughout their lives. Whether you're joining us as a new family or have been part of our community for years, we invite you to embark on this journey of academic excellence and personal growth at Friends School of Wilmington.

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
