Profile

Since 1855, Greene Street Friends School, located in historic Germantown, has educated children according to the Quaker principles of honesty, respect for the individual, peace, integrity and simplicity. While embracing these core values, the School has dared to be at the forefront of innovative educational practices. That tradition of innovation continues today with an emphasis on hands-on active learning, non-violent methods of conflict resolution, cultural understanding and cultural competency, community service and community connection, environmental education and the thoughtful incorporation of technology into the curriculum, including a 1:1 iPad program for the School's oldest students. Greene Street Friends School is perhaps the most diverse school in the Delaware Valley, welcoming and serving more than 300 children of all backgrounds in grades PreK through 8. Strong fundamentals in all academic areas and ethical strength through an outstanding social and emotional curriculum prepare our students for a rapidly changing world and enable them to progress with an enthusiasm for learning and for life. It is our hope that through their experiences, Greene Street children will discover and affirm themselves and others as they come to know and value differences in ability, language, skin color, sexual orientation, religion, family structure and family income.
