    my school is a quaint little school it is a small quaker school and we only have a few kids going to our school. We have only a total of nine kids and we have 5 teachers our principal Mrs.Ninan is basically our main teacher shes a really good teacher shes helps you when you need it and we have some one on one classes to help you alot better with everything. we have real food (not procesed) and its cooked right here at the school or at Miss.Arons (our lunch lady) i like that the school gives one on one classes with students and the school could improve by having more activities for the kids and newer books for certain classes. and i do think others should know about blossom gardens.

    It has been my privilege to work as principal at Blossom Garden Friends School K-12 for 37 years. We use an interactive individualized approach based on students' needs and gifts. We emphasize creativity and critical thinking in a nurturing Christian community. Students actively participate in community service. Our most recent graduate was one of five incoming college freshmen to receive a $40 000 scholarship for community service. J. Ninan .Master of Science degree.

    I am a graduate from BGFS and I couldn't be more satisfied with my education. I went to Trocaire immediately after graduating from BGFS. The teachers at BGFS really take the time to get to know you as a student or parent. Every teacher here knows every student because all teaching is done on a one to one basis because everybody learns differently and this school respects that. I have absolutely no regrets when it comes to my Middle school and High school education because I know the caring teachers at BGFS set me up for success.

    I am a former student who attended Blossom Garden from 3rd grade through the 12th. I found the atmosphere at this school to be very nurturing and I received an excellent education. When I attended the school was not graded in the traditional way but I took standardized tests and I always scored far above my grade level. I took several college courses in high school and received A grades. I went on to my undergraduate and graduate studies and got my MD. I have now been in practice for 10 years. I feel the education I received at Blossom Garden prepared me for my very successful career and I feel very lucky to have been able to attend there. The academic preparation is excellent but also the emphasis on being a loving and ethical person has helped me in all areas of my life. I would also like to mention that all of the teachers at this school are quality individuals with proper credentials and experience.

    I graduated from BGFS and went on to college right afterwards. I wholeheartedly enjoyed being in the school and am very thankful my parents gave me the opportunity. I feel that a smaller classroom size gives the students the ability to get to know each of their classmates and teachers on a personal level unlike public schools. The teachers are also very dedicated. They make sure each student has the attention they need to reach their full potential. Another bonus is that parents are always welcome to go on field trips and interact with the students in the classroom. BGFS was the best investment my family made for my education.

    ok I have learned alot since I posted my comment of Blossom Garden Friends School .......... I took my daughter out of that school since I noticed that the parents of other students in the school disaplined students when there was a problem and the students wasn't being taught by teachers that had a degree and it was a non credited school so when I took my daughter which was in 11th grade out of Blossom Gardens Friends School and tried to put her in a regular school she had no credits and she was told that even if she stayed there she wouldnt have the credits to graduate so my daughter is currently going to school to get her G.E.D

    I was a teacher at this school and I can tell you first hand that the teachers are more than good they are outstanding. They are dedicated to providing the best education for each and every child. The students are also taught kindness which in todays world is so very important. So if you want to protect you children from the harsh realities this is the place for them. Even a struggling family in todays economy can afford this school. Check it out you will be surprised. The school is also a place where parents can make a difference. Check it out you will love it.
