This school has lost touch with the community. students and parents. School has been on years of steady decline and it continues. No accountable allows for costly mistakes and it shows. I was once told "I don't care what the parents say" when explaining what a mother told me. Besides other issues I ...  Read more

Abington Friends School is an amazing school with amazing teachers and students. Everyday I go into school excited, and can't wait for long breaks to end to get back to school.

During my son's years at AFS, he seemed annoyed by the treatment of the young athletes, he felt that the teachers there sometimes picked on the varsity athletes for obvious reasons.

Abington Friends was mired in favoritism towards the wealthier students. Students receiving financial aid were treated harsher when brought up on disciplinary charges. Sometimes students are given two periods of study hall a day. Not good for teenagers to have that much free time, especially an hour ...  Read more

Abington Friends provides the most authentic, meaningful learning environment. It is committed to children and educating the whole child. My son has really blossomed on every level since he has begun attending AFS.

We have chosen not to send our second child to AFS due to the poor leadership there. Families continue to leave as a result of a very poor upper school advisory program and a fairly new LS director. The communication is terrible and the headmaster is unremarkable. There are much better schools available ...  Read more

My child has been a student at AFS for many years. I have been very disappointed with the leadership and do not feel that the headmaster or the new principal demonstrate Quaker values the way that they should be. I chose AFS because I am Quaker and felt very strongly that I wanted what was being instilled ...  Read more
