45 Parent Reviews for Connecticut Friends School

My child has been attending Friends Nursery School for the last year. We were sold on the school because we wanted a very play based, individualized curriculum for our child. In addition, we loved the idea of a program that honors all beliefs and instills a love of community. Thus far, we have been ...  Read more

My daughter is currently in her third year of preschool at Connecticut Friends School, and she absolutely loves it. The teachers here are the BEST and give each child exactly what they need in terms of attention, care, and education. What I love most about CFS is how they observe the child-led method ...  Read more

"Education is not preparation for life; Education is life itself." This quote sums up so many of the positive feelings I have for our school, Connecticut Friends. My two children attend CFS and are thriving there, academically, emotionally and creatively. I really appreciate the open communication between ...  Read more

Connecticut Friends School (CFS) has a nurturing environment where the students feel safe to take risks in their learning. The student-teacher ratio is small so the students have many opportunities to work directly with their teachers. The learning is very hands-on so the students have a very active ...  Read more

Love the Friends Preschool - my child has been there since we took a Mommy & Me class when he was not even 2 years old, then he joined the 2 year old class and then moved up the 3 & 4 year old class. I love that this school is on the smaller side and focuses on the social emotional growth of the preschooler ...  Read more

Our two granddaughters attend CFS, one in the nursery school and one in the middle school. They love it and can't wait to get there every day. The teachers and auxiliary staff are exemplary both in their caring approach to the individual needs of each child and their teaching methods. The buildings ...  Read more

We are parents of a middle school student and have been overall very pleased with our child's experience at the school. We are now midway through the year, and our child continues to be engaged, challenged, and is learning a tremendous amount across the strong and emergent curriculum. The friendships ...  Read more

I Graduated from CFS a couple of years ago. It is absolutely the best school I've ever been to and believe me I've been to a lot. Everyone is so kind and welcoming, I attended CFS for four years and I have to say, best four years of my life so far. With the classes so small you really get to know each ...  Read more

My wife and I appreciate that the teachers ask the children to think for themselves, but also require groups of students to collaborate and listen to each other's ideas. The practice the kids get problem solving is invaluable and the fact that they are challenged to consider alternate points of view ...  Read more
