Employer Description
Friends School of Portland is an independent preschool through 8th grade school arising from Quaker faith and practice and built upon long-held standards of exceptional Friends schools. Embracing the Quaker belief in the unique worth of each individual, we seek students from diverse ethnic, economic and family backgrounds. In small, multi-age classes, as well as in after school and summer programs, we nurture children’s unfolding development as curious, creative, and compassionate world citizens. We emphasize high standards for independent thinking and personal integrity. We offer a place-based curriculum with cooperative, hands-on learning in a close community where simplicity, service, stewardship, and peaceful resolution of conflict are practiced every day.
Diversity Mission Statement
Guided by the Quaker belief in the light within each person, we seek to create an engaged and diverse community of people from different backgrounds, identities, beliefs, and circumstances. We value the shared wisdom that individual and cultural differences and perspectives bring, and we strive to build a community in which each person belongs, is known, and is valued. We believe that learning and playing in a diverse school community enriches our shared experience and prepares our students for lives of purpose in a diverse world.
