I was genuinely impressed by the school’s desire to pursue cutting edge research in teaching philosophies combined with the traditional values that the school instills in it’s students.
I suspect that Quaker school values likely are quite pervasive in non-Friends schools throughout Greater Philadelphia.
GFS was always our first choice and we have been extremely happy with the quality of our daughter’s education since she began kindergarten in 2007.
I looked around at middle and upper school students and asked myself, “Is this what I want my kids to be like when they get older?” At GFS, the answer to that question was an unequivocal “Yes!”
