Our Strategic Vision


Academic Excellence, Plus Strength of Character

Brooklyn Friends School integrates a rich learning environment with a compelling history of values-driven education and a dedicated and diverse community. The Quaker values of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Stewardship are the underpinnings of our academic strength. They inform our faithful commitment to academic excellence and opportunity as well as the warmth and respect our students, parents, and staff impart and experience within our school.

From an in-depth study of the solar system in Preschool to participation in the prestigious International Baccalaureate Program in Upper School, study at Brooklyn Friends provides students with the academic preparation sought by the most competitive colleges and universities.

We nurture a lifelong love of learning, and we foster strength of character, values, and the ability to think expansively in all of our students.

Our school may span two campuses, but there are meaningful interactions between students in all divisions, because we recognize that there is great value in offering opportunities for our students to teach and inspire each other.
