Friends School is a small, uniquely diverse co-ed independent school in Long
Island, New York, serving grades Nursery-1st Grade with plans to add
additional lower school grades. We are a Quaker school under
the care of the Westbury Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.
As a Friends school, we use what Friends refer to as testimonies, or
guiding spiritual principles, to inform our daily practice as educators. These
testimonies are: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality,
and stewardship. Friends schools
embrace these principles as we weave them through the daily life of the school.
Embracing the Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship, Westbury Friends School guides students through an academically challenging curriculum toward a lifelong love of learning; inspires students to recognize and appreciate their individual gifts and those of others; and, provides students with the tools to live peacefully in a diverse world in the manner of Friends.
