What stands out about the teachers at Brooklyn Friends School?

I feel that I had the best teachers. In every discipline, I had an extraordinary teacher who was extremely passionate about teaching. The most important thing is that I felt like they were teaching from a genuine interest and not from a textbook.

What is something that you’ve noticed since becoming Alumni Director?

I’m always amazed that although we fit into different classes and decades, everyone I have spoken to has had the same experience and can talk about a favorite teacher and how that teacher impacted them. They can talk about the importance of Quaker meetings and how different Brooklyn Friends is from any other school.

"I definitely was challenged at Brooklyn Friends School, but in the best way possible and in a way that brought out my strengths and didn't highlight my weaknesses."
