Overview

Overview

State College Friends School says

State College Friends School is a Quaker Pre-K through 8th grade school nurturing intellectual growth with a stimulating academic curriculum in a spiritually enriching environment. Since 1980, we have been guided by the principles of equality, community, simplicity, and harmony. Our uniqueness comes from celebrating diversity and welcoming families of all faiths and perspectives. Our school motto states that "Education is a journey, not a destination." That means we view learning as a process of exploration and self-discovery, with students actively engaged in constucting knowledge from experience. The teacher's role in this process is to provide a careful balance of challenge and nurture. Consequently, our expectations are high, both for intellectual learning and for developing self-discipline and responsible independence. At the same time, we nurture the capacities of the spirit that enable students to do their best: confidence, self-esteem, imagination,caring.
