who we are
As a Quaker school, we believe that children learn best through purpose and play, in a diverse community of teachers and peers where the Light is seen in every individual. Our students grapple with complex, real-world problems, learning to identify problems, find solutions, and take action, becoming active changemakers in their own neighborhoods and in the world beyond. When a Frankford Friends student joyfully reaches for information with confidence, objectivity and inquisitiveness we believe that our purpose as a school is fulfilled.
the key components
A Challenging Problem or Question
It all begins with a meaningful issue focused on one or more of the UN SDGs
Students engage in an extended process of exploration.
The projects offer real-world content, tasks, tools, and impact.
Students communicate through technology, art, statistics, writing, and speaking.
Reflection, Critique, and Revision
Students give, receive, and apply feedback to improve their process and product.
Students make their work public through demonstrations outside of the classroom.
Our curriculum is grounded in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, our blueprint to understand and engage with the issues that will impact our communities today and in the future. From our earliest learners in pre-kindergarten to our eighth-grade leaders, every FFS student is offered a world view in which possibilities and opportunities can be found in every challenge.
Frankford Friends School guides and inspires students’ creativity as they identify problems, find solutions, and take action on the issues that affect them and the world.FFS Admissions
