Profile

For students at Westbury Friends School the most valuable skills, knowledge, and memorable experiences are not composed of isolated facts and repetivie drills but rather from a child's ability to make meaning of his/her work by integrating it with prior knowledge and experience.  The academic program at Westbury Friends School is based on active learning, learning by doing, by challenging oneself and stretching in ways that promote growth in all developmental areas.  Across the disciplines, opportunities exist for areas of the curriculum to be integrated, thus deepening the student's interest and understanding. The Quaker values and testimonies of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Stewardship remain at the center of daily life for all at WFS.
