Academics & Program
Media-Providence Friends School is committed to creating a community of life-long learners, who grow in nurturing classrooms which offer academic challenge and provide opportunities for character development.
In a setting that both challenges and supports, we cultivate students’ intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, creative and physical aspects. A strong foundation in reading, writing, and math enables them to progress through the rest of the rich curriculum (science, the arts, Spanish and social studies). Whenever possible, subjects are integrated so that children understand that knowledge is connected and applicable across disciplines. And, because children learn at different rates and in diverse ways, we support them in their learning at individual levels, within the context of our program, from mastery of basic skills to higher order thinking.
We emphasize the Quaker belief that there is an Inner Light in every individual and are deeply concerned with nurturing the light and potential that is rooted within each child. Students are expected to develop a sense of responsibility and respect for all communities, and embrace diversity in all its forms.
