Welcome to Wilmington Friends

Wilmington Friends School is a community.

Wilmington Friends is a private school in Wilmington, Delaware, with high standards for academic achievement and an environment where children thrive with confidence to be their very best. We emphasize critical and creative thinking, informed by the values of our Quaker roots: integrity, community, equality, simplicity, stewardship, and peace. Serving preschool, elementary, middle and high school students.

We offer an unsurpassed private school academic program, and just as important, Friends is a great place to grow up. What often brings families to Quaker education (95% of the families who choose Friends are not Quaker) is the appeal of an academic program with depth—one that asks students to question, to collaborate, to be creative, to take risks—within a caring community that balances focus on the individual with responsibility to the common good.

Our teachers (including coaches) know our students; teachers provide individual attention and are deeply invested in students’ growth and success. Because they are known as individuals, students are able to discover and develop the best in themselves; because they are valued and held to high standards as members of a community, students are motivated to contribute and to lead.

For parents, Friends is a great place to join with other families who share a commitment to education that inspires the best in each student while fostering an active responsibility to the good of all. There is no “typical” Friends School student or family. We recognize diversity of thought, identity, and experience as essential to both academic excellence and the character of our community.
