About Us

The Arthur Morgan School (AMS) provides a safe and loving environment where 27 day and boarding school students in grades 7, 8 and 9 learn to question and evaluate, think creatively and work cooperatively. A low student/teacher ratio ensures individualized instruction and guidance. Students and staff honor the Quaker values of simplicity, responsibility, service, personal integrity, nonviolent conflict resolution and respect for self, others and the environment.

At AMS students grow in capability, confidence and independence as they live, learn and explore the world with staff and their peers in a rural setting. With an emphasis on our work program, students learn the importance of community service, volunteerism, environmental stewardship and sustainability. As a staff run school with no headmaster, students are included in consensus decision making processes where peace making skills are gained and community is fostered.

AMS graduates successfully enter the adult world with a love of learning, interest in self-discovery, social awareness and a sense of personal empowerment. A strong sense of community and a nurturing environment give our alumni the confidence and life skills to explore the world around them and embrace the diversity that humanity has to offer.
