Employer Description
Brooklyn Friends School (BFS) is an independent, college preparatory Quaker school serving a culturally diverse educational community of approximately 650 students, ages 2 years through 12th grade. Founded in 1867 by The Brooklyn Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, BFS is guided by the ideals of acceptance, compassion, equality and non-violence.

Located in two buildings in downtown Brooklyn, BFS offers spacious classrooms, seven science labs, three libraries, two dance studios, a ceramics studio, two gymnasiums, a media center, a 300-seat theater/meeting house, a wood shop, two cafeterias, and roof-top playground.

BFS Mission Statement: Guided by the Quaker belief that there is a Divine Light in everyone, Brooklyn Friends School cultivates an intellectually ambitious and diverse community that celebrates each individual’s gifts. We challenge our students to value and embrace difference as they develop critical thinking skills and apply their knowledge and intelligence both in and out of the classroom. In this rich learning environment, we inspire all members of our community to voice their convictions, to discover and pursue their passions, and to seek truth. Our graduates are compassionate, curious, and confident global citizens who let their lives speak in the spirit of leadership and service.
