explore our CAMPUS

What's cool about our campus is that it's spread out over seven acres in Philadelphia's historic neighborhood of Germantown. The buildings are an eclectic mix of old and new, a unique look and feel more consistent with a college campus. With three gyms, three auditoriums, a student center, numerous open, green spaces and nine classroom buildings, it's a place worthy of adoration and exploration. The Meetinghouse, at the center of it all, provides a beautiful and spiritual focal point.

The Pillars of A

Quaker Education

At GFS, students and teachers gather in Meeting for Worship once each week. This is a time for shared, silent contemplation. Anyone who feels moved to speak may rise and do so. It is a simple formula, and can be a remarkably powerful experience.In these days of constant connectivity, the ability and opportunity to sit in silence have special value. Meeting for Worship is a cornerstone of the GFS culture that many come to cherish throughout their lives.

Meet Assistant Operations & Equipment Manager LaToya Myers

LaToya Myers joined the GFS staff as the Athletics Assistant Operations & Equipment Manager in September 2022. She also serves as an assistant basketball coach for the Varsity and JV Girls Basketball teams. 

As the Assistant Operations & Equipment Manager, Myers will help to ensure efficiency within the Athletic department in partnership with the maintenance and transportation departments for all aspects of operations for our multi-site athletic program. Myers will oversee the inventory, care, and ordering of all sports equipment and uniforms; maintain the multiple Athletics storage spaces ensuring safety and functionality; oversee competition and events logistics; and assist with daily Athletics operations including serving as a substitute coach, scorekeeper, and van driver. 

“I’m looking forward to this new journey with GFS; it’s been a long time coming. I plan on helping the Athletics department progress to greatness, while still maintaining my love for coaching basketball,” said Myers. 

Myers played a role in the Varsity Girls Basketball’s road to the Friends Schools League championship game – and PAISAA state tournament – in the 2021-2022 season. She returned last season after a hiatus from when she assisted with the same program in 2011-2015. Myers has also coached for Philly Pride, an AAU program, and was a player at Northeast High School and Bethune Cookman College. 

Myers draws on operational management from her time running a small business, ToyzKitchen. 

“It’s been an honor to work with LaToya over the years, and it’s great to be able to bring her on campus in a more robust capacity. Our focus continues to be on the student-athlete experience, and knowing that our program is so intricate, we’re so excited to have LaToya’s highly organizational mindset to help us bridge the equipment and transportation needs of our program. I’m excited for more students to get to know her,” said Director of Athletics Katie Bergstrom Mark.
