Employer Description
 
Haddonfield Friends School is an independent Quaker school educating students from age two through eighth grade. Conveniently located close to the PATCO Hi-Speed Line train, we are an easy commute for families across South Jersey and Philadelphia. Accredited by the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools.

HFS is a leader in progressive education, integrating challenging academics within a spiritual foundation of community, spirituality, responsibility and stewardship. A hallmark of a Quaker school experience is the basic beliefs that we are all teachers and learners and that each child has unique gifts and talents. Students are called upon to discover their own voices and interests within the framework of rigorous, college-preparatory academics.  The foundation of the educational experience is built upon the ideal that students’ quality of character – what kind of people they are becoming – is as important to their lives and to the world as their intellectual growth and exploration.

Diversity Mission Statement
 
Statement of Community
HFS understands learning communities as microcosms of our larger society. Students graduate from HFS with strong reflective skills, the capacity for active empathy, a deep understanding of conflict resolution, and the ability to engage in complex problem solving. The social organization of the school serves as the foundation of this learning:  HFS strives to achieve a balance between the needs of individuals and our community in an atmosphere of cooperation and concern for the betterment of all.

Diversity Statement
In true Quaker spirit, HFS is committed to genuine diversity, equity, social justice and activism.  Our learning community explores, celebrates, and encourages differences and commonalities, as well as the challenges and opportunities that they present.  We understand these efforts as integral to the personal and intellectual growth of each member of our school, as well as to the overall wellbeing of our community and the wider world.
