I love Friends. I have been going to Friends since Kindergarten (I am now starting my 9th grade year) and I absolutely love it. The people who are in my grade are some of the nicest people I've ever met and everybody is inviting. I don't feel excluded from anyone and I feel like I could talk to whoever ...  Read more

My daughter and son went to Friends. My daughter, staying until 8th grade and mr son, staying all the way through. The Lower School at Friends Seminary is fantastic!

I am a lifer at Friends, but am leaving for high school. I have felt many ways about this school. Friends really knows how to make an amazing lower school! I feel confident about my experience as a young child there. As for middle school, Friends is extremely inconsistent. The teachers range from ...  Read more

I graduated from Friends in 2009 and in the fall of 2012 my sister will enroll in high school. We don't yet know where she will end up, but I truly hope it will be Friends. Friends is very strong in the humanities, particularly English. At the end of 12th grade, a few of the members of the class of ...  Read more

I'm a lifer at Friends and I've always loved it here; the sense of community and the rigorous but fun classes offered have always been what kept me coming back every year. I cannot picture my life without Quaker meeting in the mornings, and as recently as two years ago I cannot even begin to imagine ...  Read more

This school is simply outstanding, from the top down. Bo Lauder is an extraordinary and accessible leader, the teachers are first-rate, the parents are warm and welcoming. Could not be a better experience for my child.

Truly a first-rate school. My children are receiving an outstanding education here. This school also seems to be a few years ahead of other NYC private schools, which is beneficial for a hard-working student. But, I should mention that it is quite difficult to be accepted into the Friends high school ...  Read more

Excellent school. I had many reservations about sending my son there. I was scared that it wouldn't have been competitive enough and that my son would be forced to adopt the Quaker religion. I'm happy to say that neither was true. It's super competitive, rigorous and exclusive. It's just a really good ...  Read more

My daughter started Kindergarten at Friends this year and she is thrilled to be there. Her teachers are very nurturing and committed to their work. My daughter comes home each day excited about what she has learned not only in her assigned class, but also in all of the elective classes she goes to. ...  Read more
