What makes a Brooklyn Friends School education unique?

The academics are very challenging. If we didn’t have people supporting us, it would be something that might not be manageable. They [the faculty] push you to be interested in schoolwork – beyond just the grade, and beyond what you might get out of it later – to really be genuinely interested in learning and want to learn more and go deeper and excel.

How has Brooklyn Friends helped you to grow?

When I was younger, in the Lower School, I was always taught to say exactly how I felt. If there was an issue, we were always taught to try to work it out in a way that was a peaceful resolution, and in a way that would really benefit everyone.

"They're definitely preparing me for the better. It's pushed me to a place where I can feel like I can be successful and stay motivated."
