Lower School (Grades PK-5)

Pioneering innovative teaching and learning since 1784.  

For our youngest learners, Friends’ academic program ensures that all lower school students have a strong foundation in the core subjects — language arts, math, science, social studies — and develop a capacity for collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. 

Innovative teaching and learning speaks to a modern approach to education that marries mastery of content and skill with values education. Schools today are just now understanding—and pivoting to—the kind of pedagogy we have employed for over two centuries.

Our foundational Quaker values compel us to serve as leaders in Baltimore and beyond.  By “letting their lives speak” our students understand the impact they can and will have on the world.  Perhaps more than anything, we are proud of the people our students become.
