Our Strategic Vision

The Wisdom of Youth

The Brooklyn Friends School mission statement says it all: our students and graduates are “compassionate, curious, and confident global citizens who let their lives speak in the spirit of leadership and service.” Many in our school community marched on January 21, 2017 supporting what Friends schools stand for: peace, equality for all, the advancement of civil rights, the health of our planet, social justice. See photos below of some of those in our community who participated.

And see a video of our student body president, Miles Nabritt ‘ 17, addressing his peers at the upper school’s annual Community Issues Conference just one day after the 2016 presidential election; his message continues to be relevant and reflective of the wisdom of youth.
