Lansdowne Friends School Philosophy

Lansdowne Friends School provides models and opportunities for children as they develop academically, socially, and spiritually. Our goals for children include:

  •   Growth in academic skills
  •   Cultivation of an inner discipline and strong sense of self
  •   Enjoyment of learning
  •   Development of compassion and care for others

We provide opportunities for self-directed learning and for the application of that learning. We teach life skills needed to preserve good health, to serve the community, and to settle differences peacefully.

Lansdowne Friends School challenges and supports children in their growth as creative and capable human beings. Children and teachers work in developmentally appropriate formal and informal learning settings. Together they strengthen and refine problem solving, decision-making and academic skills.

Our program builds on the natural curiosity our children have for their immediate surroundings and supports exploration of their ever unfolding world.

Lansdowne Friends School is Accredited by the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools.

Lansdowne Friends School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, religion or national or ethnic origin, or sexual orientation in admissions and scholarship programs, in administration of its educational program or in employment policies.
