Values & Mission

The fundamental belief that there is "good" in each person forms the basis for the values Friends embrace: Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Service. These values, referred to as the SPICES, infuse curriculum in every grade and subject, and explicit instruction in their meaning and application occurs in Humanities and Advisory classes.

Quaker SPICES

Simplicity: Friends aim to exercise moderation where material possessions and use of Earth’s resources are concerned.

Peace: Quakers seek to eliminate conflicts that lead to violence and war.

Integrity: Friends are expected to be truthful in all interactions.

Community: Respect for every individual compels Friends to foster open, mutually caring and enriching relationships.

Equality: Friends believe that all people are created equal, regardless of race, gender, faith, age or class.

Service: Quakers practice their faith through active engagement to affect positive change in the world.
