The mission of Cambridge Friends School (CFS) is to provide an outstanding education. Guided by Quaker principles, CFS engages students in meaningful learning within a caring community committed to social justice. They expect students to develop their intellectual, physical, creative, and spiritual potential; to challenge oppression; and to contribute to justice and understanding in the world. A CFS education is rooted in academic excellence. Students are taught not only a breadth and depth of knowledge, but also the skills to research, write, and communicate that knowledge. A CFS education sees the light in every student. Each student is celebrated for who they are and where they come from. A CFS education is centered in antibias work. Cambridge Friends is committed to being a community that challenges racism and celebrates LGBTQ individuals. A CFS education is grounded in thoughtful pedagogy. Drawing on researchbased best practices, their curriculum is designed to meet the academic, social/emotional, and developmental needs of each child.
