Frankford Friends has been an amazing experience. They are a truly nurturing community where kids have a chance to be kids and have authentic learning experiences.

Frankford Friends is a small, community-minded, lovely school. My son, who is first grade, is reading beautifully and enjoys school.

Frankford Friends School is full of teachers and even administrators who truly care about the students. The school is founded on Quaker values like tolerance and pacifism and truly keeps up with them.

We have found FFS to be a wonderful school that offers an excellent education at an affordable cost. This is a very special place founded in the 1800's. The small size (just over 100 students--not a typo--in K-8) means there is a tight community. Everyone knows everyone else.
