FSA’s middle school seeks to meet the educational and emotional needs of early adolescent students who are experiencing rapid physical, intellectual and social growth. While continuing to take into account different levels of maturity, students are expected to take increasing responsibility for their work. Middle School fosters successful study habits, academic growth and individual creativity within a framework of choice and self-discipline. It also affords various opportunities for social development while encouraging social responsibility, community activism and service to others.
After graduating from The Friends School, alum students have gone on to all types of high schools -independent, public and boarding- and have a record of academic and social success in these environments, as well as an ongoing commitment to community service and activism.
