Haddonfield Friends School
- New Jersey
At HFS, we believe that the best education is one that inspires within children an insatiable curiosity to learn. The Quaker testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship (“SPICES”) are woven into every aspect of school life; they are all by both logic and necessity integral to our academic studies, social development and conflict resolution. We implement a curriculum that is progressive, timely and relevant to today's world. We encourage our students to wonder and explore, ask challenging questions, and discover; that is, to become independent learners and thinkers. We provide effective tools for students to respond compassionately and thoughtfully to one another and the world in a non-violent manner; to be peaceful, creative problem-solvers. We seek opportunities to serve others and tend the environment in the context of community/global outreach and daily practice - to be good stewards of relationships, resources, and the planet.
