About NFS


Why Newtown Friends School?

If you’re searching for a school for your child, it’s likely you have a long checklist to consider. You know that few decisions will have as great an impact on your child’s future. You wonder where your child will find the strong academic preparation, enriching activities, and deeply nurturing culture that will allow them to flourish.  

If you are comparing facts, visiting campuses, and reviewing your options, consider the benefits of Newtown Friends School that make it such a meaningful investment for your child’s future.

A Solid Foundation

Our research-based academic program does so much more than simply impart facts. We teach students the skills they need to be critical thinkers: observing, analyzing, interpreting, reflecting, evaluating, explaining, problem-solving, and decision making. Students with these abilities become the leaders, creators, and communicators our world needs.

A Curriculum Both Robust and Relevant

We prepare students who can nimbly adapt to the evolving technologies and emerging challenges of 21st century life.  Newtown Friends helps students make connections between the disciplines, applying what they learn in new and creative ways. The curriculum is rich from core content to special subjects, and is taught by caring, highly-qualified faculty.

Safety and Emotional Wellness

Every parent wants their child to love school and find joy in discovery. Children thrive when they feel safe and confident, aware that their school is protecting their physical and emotional wellbeing. Parents know that at Newtown Friends their child will be part of a school culture with a true sense of community, a place where they will be known and celebrated.

Values that Align with Your Own

Parents choose Newtown Friends School because they want a school setting with a warm and loving culture that is compatible with what they teach and model at home. Quaker values are so apparent in our campus community — respect, responsibility, mindfulness, empathy, action, diversity, nonviolent conflict resolution. These foster a climate of welcome and inclusion that influences every aspect of campus life.

Outcomes that Matter

Visitors often remark that our students are well-rounded, articulate, and mature. Those may be some of the reasons why they so regularly achieve entry to some of the most selective high schools and universities in the country. Our most gratifying endorsements of NFS are our students' high achievement on standardized tests, our history of service in the community and around the world, and our students' track record of career and personal success.
