As a Quaker institution, we view school as a spiritual community that reflects, develops, and relies on the full gifts of each of its members—and on the belief that it should exist in harmony with its surrounding neighborhood.
GFS takes its strong identity from a constellation of four distinct elements:
- a vibrant intellectual community of teachers and students who share a profound belief in the power of education;
- a historic setting in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia where we are richly connected to a complex human story and fabric of neighbors and neighboring institutions;
- a diverse and multicultural faculty and student body in a community where difference is valued as indispensable;
- a Quaker vision of what is possible for both individuals and communities, and a belief in fulfilling this vision through reflection, collaboration, and action.
We continually seek to build our contacts with those interested in teaching at GFS. If interested, please send a letter of interest and resume to:
