About Friends Community School – College Park

Serving families who live or work in DC and Montgomery County

A challenging atmosphere where children can be excited about learning!

Children love to learn. We provide a challenging atmosphere where children can be excited about learning. Emphasis is placed on the intellectual, creative, social, spiritual, and physical development of each child. We are concerned with the growth of the whole child. We respect different development stages and honor the process of moving from one to another.

FCS is a progressive Quaker school, founded on the belief that every child is a valuable member of our community. We offer a challenging curriculum imbued with strong values of equality, simplicity, integrity, and environmental stewardship, rooted in our Quaker heritage. Our educational approach is experiential; students learn through classroom activities, field trips, projects that build on concepts taught in the classroom, and through collaborations that provide opportunities for decision-making and leadership. Time for reflection on these experiences gives students awareness of themselves as learners, and awareness of their impact on the class and larger community. The result is happy, engaged, confident and accomplished citizens of the world.

It is of primary importance that  FCS children come away with the feeling that they can make a difference in the world. Our goals for the children are that they:

  • be active participants in their own learning, through exploration of home, school, and community;
  • acquire all the skills necessary to enhance their interaction with the world, including both academic and practical life skills;
  • have the courage to take risks without worrying about failure;
  • develop a positive self-image;
  • develop a sense of responsibility for contributing to their world;
  • respect and appreciate individual differences;
  • strive to be peace makers;
  • and, acquire a life-long love of learning.

FCS is accepting applications for the 2015-2016 school year. Everything you need to know about visiting and applying to FCS can be found HERE.
