Welcome to Newtown Friends School

Newtown Friends School is a private independent school serving pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students in historic Newtown, PA.   We give students throughout Bucks County and nearby New Jersey communities an exceptional academic foundation, stimulating enrichment opportunities, and an affirming campus community that builds confidence and inspires a love for learning. Students and their parents find Newtown Friends to be a place of warmth and acceptance where they can truly feel at home.

Open to families of all faiths, Newtown Friends School embodies the timeless Quaker traditions of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship — values that prepare our students to make a difference in the world.
"NFS was our dream come true. Besides strong academics we were looking for a values system that would help us raise a kind, caring, sensitive and thoughtful person. The system of values celebrated at the school and digested in its SPICES is exactly what makes us proud and happy about having our child at NFS. The school's celebration of all types of diversity not only makes our family feel at home and respected but also teaches our daughter to value and respect others."
