Friends School is a Quaker, co-educational, college preparatory school, Pre-K through Grade 12, in Baltimore City. We are guided by the Quaker ideals of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship. We strive for our community to reflect the racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and religious diversity of our city. Friends School faculty members and coaches teach by example, blending intellectual exploration, enthusiasm, and joy. Every day in their teaching spaces, they challenge and encourage students to think deeply, to question, and to seek truth, while instilling in each of them a strong sense of social responsibility, a willingness to embrace challenges, and an awareness of their potential as individuals. Friends School teachers and coaches are expected to model and foster the habits of mind we believe are essential to an outstanding education: creativity, curiosity, empathy, reflection, and resilience.
