FCS is amazing. The parents, the teachers, the kids. Quaker values of every voice heard inform student, teacher and parent relations. The curriculum is organic and child-focused and yet ambitious. Wow!

The presidents of Haverford College and Harvard University have sent their kids to this school. No wonder. This is top notch education with all the resources of the upper school with truly dedicated teachers. We couldn't be happier. I have never heard anything negative word of mouth of this school and now I know why. The Quaker philosophy teaches strong values and responsibilty toward your fellow student and community. The academics are strong and thorough with plenty of hands on in the classroom and out of the classroom. The teachers are caring, nurturing and excellent in communicating frequently with the parents. All of this on top of an excellent facility both indoors and out. My child has flourished and grown exceptionally since the start of school. This is a great school well worth the tuition. Hands down.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
