    West Chester Friends School has fantastic teachers a great curriculum and a wonderful community of families staff and volunteers. After our first visit to the school we knew it was the right choice for our children. Our children love going to school are confident learners good friends and learning to care for and positively impact the world around them.

    Our two daughters attended this school and they have gained skills that will provide lifelong value that many kids don't get a chance to learn. They have skills in leadership thinking compassion and of course outstanding reading/writing and science/math that all too often are lacking in today's graduates. The creativity and depth of both the teaching and administrative staff are phenomenal. The school provides a positive lifelong impact that will never be forgotten. As a business owner I see hundreds of resumes and suffer through countless interviews. I shudder at the poor quaility of writing and communication skills that most young people possess. My advice Don't skimp on your child's elementary education.

    West Chester Friends School is a gem. Based on Quaker values the academics are superb and the teachers incredibly talented and dedicated. The school is small enough that all the teachers know all the students but big enough to allow for diversity and enriched socialization. When students leave after 5th grade they are completely prepared for their next academic setting. It's the perfect place for a child to spend their elementary years - being challenged academically in a caring nurturing environment. Don't let the older campus fool you -wonderful things happen inside those walls.

    My daughter is extremely inteligent but was falling behind in public school. During her first interview and assessment at WCFS they noticed what might be a tracking disorder. Taylor my 9 year old was referred to a specialist. Sure enough Taylor has a severe Tracking disorder. She is recieving therapy and is doing tremendously well in school - math and reading have improved greatly. Additionally the mission statement of WCFS supports non-violent conflict resolution community awareness and volunteerism in students art is infused in all subjects and the children of all grades work together during some subjects. Kids from these types of schools will create a brighter tomorrow!

    West Chester Friends School is a wonderful school with an enriching environment for elementary students. The classes are small the curriculum is challenging the teachers are extremely dedicated the cultural arts are enriching and the children learn the value of being a part of the greater community through participation. Our oldest child was well prepared to take on the social and academic challenges at a competitive independant secondary school because of the foundation he received here. Our second child is a current student and is eager for school and to learn each day. We highly recommend West Chester Friends School.

    My son is in Fourth Grade at this wonderful school. He has a wonderful teacher and there are only 11 children in his class. The school has exciting events such as the Mold Symposium and the Science Fair. Each year the school concentrates on an 'All School Unit'. One year the children studied Ireland. Another year they studied everything having to do with the 'underground'. It is a magical place with fantastic teachers!
