Looking For the Right School?

As a parent, you know all of the ways your child learns best and the type of environment in which they will flourish. You want to find a place where your child can practice kindness and respect, make good friends, and build a strong academic foundation. But as you fill out forms, make phone calls, and research your options, it can be hard to get a good sense of a school’s culture and environment without planning a visit.

The Tour Experience

At Newtown Friends School, we want to make your visit an inspiring and valuable experience. Because choosing the right school is a personal decision, we've designed our tour experiences to also fit a range of needs and desires. From personalized, private tours to Open House events where you can meet other families, we want you to feel welcomed and supported in your school search.

Personal Tour

Our Admissions Director, Rebecca Niszczak, will warmly welcome you during a personal tour. During this one-hour visit, you’ll see the classrooms, learning centers, athletic facilities, and more. 

Visiting on a weekday provides an opportunity to see classes in action and can help you envision how your child can flourish at NFS. You'll meet our dedicated, caring teachers and staff that will support your child as they learn and grow.

Open House

If you prefer a group experience and would like to meet other families considering Newtown Friends School, an Open House might be a good option.

During our Open House, you'll hear about our PreK-8th grade program and how our values align with those you teach in your home. You'll explore our various learning centers, such as the Nature Explore Classroom, Design Lab, Athletic Fields, and Music Room, where your child can develop their interests through enriching activities.

Our Open House also includes time to meet teachers and become more familiar with our admissions process.
