27 Parent Reviews for Princeton Friends School

My daughter started at PFS this year in the 1st grade and we could not be happier! Academically she is engaged and acquiring new skills every day. Her teachers are warm, caring, and invested in her growth as a student and a person. The school truly nurtures the individual and encourages students to care ...  Read more

It has become very clear to us that the administration is the issue in this school. The head of school and some key "founding" administrators are very resistant to changes to bring the school to the 21st century when dealing with multicultural issues. If your child and family fit their "good White liberal" ...  Read more

Why does the school appropriate an African name for its end of the year party but can't hire/retain faculty or staff of African descent? Why does the school have children of color who are Asian--male and female, and a handful of girls but almost no boys of African descent or Latino? Who will replace ...  Read more

I believe a higher focus on academics is something that all parents can come to expect from the private school experience. Indeed, it is the typical 'bragging' point of schools in attaining enrollment. But what speaks to the quality of the education, as opposed to the quantity of it? In other words, ...  Read more

Our daughter has been at PFS since early lower school and will be graduating this Spring. She has transformed from a shy, reticent student to a self-confident, eager learner. Our daughter was always reader, and PFS nurtured and guided her in her reading as she matured. The school's math teachers took ...  Read more

We came to Princeton Friends School four years ago with our expectations sky high. Everyone we had spoken to reinforced our notion that the school was exceptional, but our time there has been even better than we had dared to imagine. The teachers and administration are extraordinary and work tirelessly ...  Read more

We have three children at PFS, three very different kids with very different personalities and needs, and we couldn't be happier with their experience over the past five years. The teachers and administrators are incredibly caring and dedicated; our children are loved there, and perhaps more importantly ...  Read more

This school is not run in a professional manner. The lack of professionalism comes from the top level administration which has led the school for over twenty years, but still runs the school like a new experiment. There is a lack of clear policy for myriad issues and an overwhelming sense of the administration ...  Read more

I can't imagine a better school! My daughter and son are both graduates, and though I have been involved professionally with PFS as well, this review comes from a parent's perspective. I have never seen another school care so deeply about its students and offer so much individual help in terms of both ...  Read more

Leaves a lot to be desired at this price point, the faculty, with a few exceptions, leaves a lot to be desired. There seems to be an lot of inexperienced teachers. We gave PFS a chance and finally left after 2 years.
