The 2016-2017 school year promises to be a great one for the “Coolest School on the West Side.” We are adding a Kindergarten/1st Grade class that has a full day with a half day option. This class promises to be the first graduating 5th grade class in 2021! We will also continue to build on the foundation of the things we know you value; a faith based program, small class size, a warm welcoming atmosphere, and a place your child feels safe to discover and explore something new every day.
SummerFUN – Our 2016 Summer Camps are all about creating wonderful memories! The 10 week camp program contains weekly themes ranging from Animal Outlaws with Tanganyika Animal Park to Treasure Hunters with our own teachers and staff. Exploration Place, Monart School of Art and The Cosmosphere join us in helping make this a great summer filled with discovery, learning and FUN.
Wichita Friends School (WFS) is an AdvancEd accredited, private Quaker school located in west Wichita, designed to serve students 3 years of age through 5th grade. We embrace diversity at WFS, including all faiths and belief systems. WFS is committed to nurturing and challenging the intellectual curiosity and creativity of each child. Small class sizes enable our teachers to create a caring classroom atmosphere which helps our children discover their own unique gifts, learning at their pace. Students consistently score above national averages and leave our school well-equipped to succeed in their next level of education. The rich history of Quaker education provides a nurturing atmosphere wherein children learn the values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship (SPICES) within the rich academic and social environment. Through daily devotionals, weekly worship time, Biblical teaching, and uplifting music, your child will come to know God’s love and find joy in all of His creation. Small class sizes, individualized education, and an emphasis on the SPICES make Wichita Friends School a unique learning community. It’s the right place to start a love for life-long learning. We hope you’re now excited and will bring your family for a visit. Observing a class and meeting faculty and staff are the best ways to assess your family’s fit as members of the WFS community. Call today to schedule a time. We look forward to meeting you!
