What We Believe

Lansdowne Friends School engages children in a challenging educational program guided by Quaker values, especially those of respect for all people and peaceful problem solving.

Respect for all calls us to honor the racial, religious, economic, and cultural diversity of our students. We treasure each child and cultivate creative, compassionate, and capable individuals.  Peaceful problem solving calls us to work cooperatively and to practice non-violent responses to conflict.  We recognize the spirituality of life by encouraging reflection in weekly Meeting for Worship and by offering opportunities that enable students to construct knowledge from direct experience.  Our program supports academic growth and responsible stewardship of our earth.
