15 Parent Reviews for Sidwell Friends School

Sidwell is a great school for a lot of kids. It is great for very smart kids who want to go on to do great things. But if your child has some learning disabilities or seriously is thinking about being a professional athlete, this is probably not the best school for them. It is an extremely academically ...  Read more

Very challenging academics. Students will have already experienced college level academics by the time they graduate from Sidwell. Lots of high achievers. NO grade inflation here. Not for everyone but a great school.

I'm a highschool student at Sidwell, and I'm here to set things straight. A parent cannot base the school on their own child.

I have had a love/hate relationship with my experience as a Sidwell parent in the lower school. While the academics are challenging and very interesting for my child, the experience coming into the environment in the 3rd grade expansion year was jarring. There was little in the way of true orientation ...  Read more

Like the last reviewer said no students, nor faculty, or parents respect one another. The school is like a vacuum that is very easy to get lost in. Most of the time I was popular while attending. However, when I tried to speak to other kids or teachers about honor issues such as cheating and bullying ...  Read more
