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.
