The Friends School of Atlanta is committed to diversity and community far beyond the traditional practice of inclusion.
Guided by the Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship, we are a diverse, welcoming community of learners and seekers. Our teachers and students work to educate and be educated by children from a broad spectrum of racial, economic, ethnic and religious backgrounds as well as differing physical abilities and family structures. As a result, the student body is among the most diverse of any independent school in the Southeast.
As we strive to create what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called “the beloved community,” we purposefully engage in self-evaluation and reflection. We are resolved to maintain, expand and nurture diversity in our faculty, administration, Board members, parents and student body. We challenge ourselves to become a leading example of diversity in Atlanta and the larger educational community.
