“Wichita Friends School has been a true blessing for my family. My five-year-old son has made so many strides since starting at WFS. I see him grow each day. He loves going to this school! Academically, WFS meets his needs by providing individualized instruction and nurturing his love of learning and exploration. Socially, he has many opportunities at WFS to practice teamwork, cooperation, and his manners. The school also encourages peaceful conflict resolution and teaches, in a child-friendly way, how to approach differences with others in a way in which both parties are respected and an agreement is reached. When I see the staff members interact with the children, I know that they are providing loving guidance, even when they are re-directing negative behaviors. The thing that shapes my son the most at WFS, however, is the consistent exposure to Christian values. He knows that he is one of God’s precious creations, and he often comes home singing about it!
The elementary school years are such an influential time in a child’s
life. The basic knowledge, skills, and values acquired during this
critical period build the foundation for a bright future in which children are capable of reaching their full potential.
If you are looking for a nurturing school environment where your child
will be challenged academically by qualified and caring teachers and
will be shown the joy of God’s love, look no further than Wichita
Friends School, where your family will become part of a friendly and
supportive community that has high expectations for their children.”

“I love this school! One of the unique things about WFS is the “face to face” policy used when students have a disagreement. They are taught to LISTEN to one another, talk about their own feelings, and come to an agreement; whether an apology is needed, or some kind of resolution, etc. This skill will help them in every relationship they have the remainder of their lives.”
“Wichita Friends School works hard to educate each child at their own level. My daughter is now seven, in the first grade and has been attending WFS since the age of three and has had the same classmates since she has attended.”
“There are so many things that we LOVE about WFS! The children are able to grow academically at their own pace; they are able to interact with kids of all ages in the school; the SPICES values of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Stewardship that the school follows, and we especially love the ENTIRE FACULTY & STAFF who envelop my children for 9 hours every day, living by and teaching these values to my children on a daily basis and making every child that attends school at WFS feel so very special and treating each as the unique individual that they are!”
