“Because our world needs ethical leadership, education must provide the rising generation of children with an ethical core, an unshakable foundation of integrity that fosters respect, the non-violent resolution of conflict, and the desire to make a positive difference in the world. These themes speak directly to our historic strengths as a Friends school and are in alignment with Moses Brown’s mission — to inspire the inner promise of each student and instill the utmost care for learning, people and place.” — Matt Glendinning, Head of School

Nurturing Inner Promise Friends education celebrates the essence of every child, holding to the Quaker belief that every person has a sacred, inner Light. All voices are valued and every child contributes to the learning process. Within this supportive environment, confidence soars as children become comfortable taking risks, stretching their learning, and developing their voices. Children are encouraged to question, to search multiple sources, to value differences, and to discover the truth. It is a model that builds confidence and character, while nurturing each child’s individual talents and passions. The result is a graduate with the talents, skills and ethical mindset needed to live and lead in the 21st century.
