At Princeton Friends School, diversity is not only what we do. It's who we are.
We come from all walks of life – different neighborhoods, different countries, different families – and we treasure all the richness that this diversity brings to our school community, to our classrooms, and to our playgrounds.
Our program and curriculum reflect a global view, from our multicultural literature offerings to in-depth study of countries and cultures in our Central Study classes to instruction in both Spanish and Mandarin beginning in pre-K. To further our commitment to building community, parents, teachers, and administrators gather on a regular basis to raise and discuss issues of diversity.
In recent years, we have supported between one-quarter and one-third of our student body with tuition aid, by setting aside at least 13.5% of our operating budget for tuition assistance. Last year, approximately 38% of our students were of African, Asian, Middle Eastern, or Latino descent and 6% came from Quaker families.
