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.


Head of School Search:
The 2020-21 school year is successfully underway.  We are so grateful for the efforts of our Interim Head of School, Joe McHugh, who is doing a great job of guiding the school as we search for our permanent head!  Do YOU know someone who might be a perfect fit?  We hope so!  Please help us spread the word about this wonderful opportunity beginning Fall 2021.  Find the Statement of Opportunity HERE.

Special Thanks:

Beginning October 19th and 20th, RFS and Trueblood Preschool will transition to in-person school for the first time since March.  Parents and guardians are welcome to call Joe McHugh, Interim Head of School, at or call the office at 765-966-5767 if you have questions about this decision.  We are eager to share our thoughts with our community.
