A Quaker School

We are a Friends school, under the care of Germantown Monthly Meeting, founded on the belief that there is that of God in everyone. Together, love and respect for each individual provide the premise for all that we do.

We regard education not as training for a particular way of life, but as part of a lifelong process, and as we guide and encourage our students in their personal growth, we try to cultivate and support them in principles that Friends have long considered to have lasting value. Among these are truthfulness, simplicity, and self-discipline, the resolution of differences without violence and respect for diverse heritages and experiences.

Faith & Practice

A good way to understand how Quakerism lives at GFS is through the publication "Faith & Practice of Germantown Friends School." It is intended to give members of the GFS community insight into the core values that guide everyday life at our school and that give the institution its Quaker character.
