Richmond Friends School is a Preschool-8th grade independent Quaker school founded in 1971. Our multi-aged classrooms are purposefully designed to have low student to teacher ratios allowing for customized instruction, expectations and assessments tailored to the academic and social needs of each individual child. Students are challenged to solve problems critically and collaboratively in a rich and nurturing community where faculty and staff, parents and guardians, and students are all important partners in the dynamic process of learning. Our graduates go on to be life-long learners and compassionate citizens committed to making the world a better place. Richmond Friends School admits students of any race, color, religion, national, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national, or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies, financial aid programs, and other school-administered programs.


Covid-19 Precautions:
The Wayne County Board of Health has announced that all area schools will be closed March 16th-April 13th.  Please read this statement for more information. RFS is committed to ensuring that our staff are able to meet their financial needs while school is on hold; therefore, the board has committed to paying all full- and part-time employees during this unexpected leave.   

What To Do Now?:
We are grateful for the amazing RFS teachers who are working hard to keep our students engaged. THANK YOU! There are also tons of resources flying around social media right now which is wonderful, but also a bit overwhelming! An RFS parent has reviewed a few of these to give you a good place to start (Hint from the parent, you’ll love these, too!): Resources for Parents
