FSS is only getting better. The new Lower School director is responcive and welcoming. He has changed the 'tone' of the Lower School. Parent envolvment now seems welcome and the environment feels safer.
Friends Select has so far exceeded my husband, and myself expectations. The children here are very independant, and are exposed to so many things on a daily basis. Computer games, science, recess, library, p.e, music, Art, piano lessons. There are just so many choices every day. There are a ton of parent volunteers. I am grateful. It's a wonderful place to send a child.
Friends Select is a good school, mostly for it's diversity, resources, and extracurriular activities. The school is small, the type where everyone knows your name. Teachers give every student individualized attention. I give this school an A.
As a recent graduate of Friends Select, I can honestly say that no other school could have prepared me better for college. I received an education with breadth and depth and have brought much of what I learned to my college courses. If I ever have children, I wouldn't send them anywhere else. The faculty are some of the most intelligent people I've ever met, and my fellow students were diverse and outgoing and remain some of my closest friends to this day. The administration is caring and accessible, and the school's resources get better and better. Going to school in such a lively cultural area, how could they not? FSS really takes advantage of such opportunities. A great place I will hold in my heart forever.
Friends Select is wonderful school. A great place for kids to learn and expirence the world together. Not only accademically, but physicaly and emotionaly as well. my sister and i have attended Friends select over tens years now. Both of us have been here since pre kindergarden. Over the years Friends Select has become like a home to me. Everyone, supporting me and each other makes our community like a family. I have enjoyed every year here, and could never imaging going to school any other place.
The school is okay, but it is not the best for the extremely high tuition you have to pay. The teachers aren't very good, and the school is very small. I am not a parent, I am just a 5th grade student, but I know just as much as a parent would know about the school. We are not learning on the correct level. You should really think before you send your child here.
