Our Strategic Vision

The BFS at 150 History Book - "150 Years of Light"

To recognize our 150 years of Quaker education in Downtown Brooklyn, the School embarked on an exciting and important project, the Brooklyn Friends School Sesquicentennial History Book. The book formally documents our rich history, the evolution of our extraordinary academic program, our relationship with the Brooklyn and New York City communities and the impact that a Quaker values-based education has had on thousands of Brooklyn Friends students over the last century and a half.

With photos, stories, anecdotes and memories, 150 Years of Light  is a keepsake for anyone who loves Brooklyn Friends School. To request a copy, please contact the Advancement Office.
