The upper school at Friends engages students in an unsurpassed high school academic program, including the International Baccalaureate (IB). As we guide students in developing their talents and passions, we also continue to encourage a process of discovery, in and outside of the classroom. Students are able to participate broadly if they choose—and can take on multiple leadership roles—in competitive athletics, performing arts, and clubs and committees, from Robotics and Science Olympiad to Random Acts of Kindness to Eco Club.
The structure of our 1:1 laptop program ensures that all students have the same computer hardware and software, which is both reflective of our mission as a Quaker school and practical in enabling students and teachers to collaborate more effectively. As part of helping high school students to define what they value and to reach their full potential, we offer highly individualized, professional college guidance.
