We are Princeton Friends School – a progressive and Quaker preschool to 8th grade learning community where young people engage their natural curiosity to gain core knowledge, acquire life skills, express their voices, passions, and gifts, and develop responsibility for themselves and service to others. Here, children are known, respected, challenged, and loved.

The magic is in the everyday joy of learning that vibrates through our classrooms; the atmosphere of trust, openness, collaboration, and kindness; the peaceful, woodland environment where children discover and revel in being scientists, explorers, artists, and – well – children.

We invite you to visit Princeton Friends School and experience it for yourself. Attend one of our Open Houses, contact the Admissions office directly by filling out a short inquiry form. We’re eager to show you what a difference one school can make!

“One of the most striking aspects of this school are the interactions between the adults and student and how everyone knows everyone. Some of my fondest PFS memories are just talking with Pete about current events, or discussing comic books with Jimmy, or the latest science news with Brian. The sense of community permeates the school deeply.”
