Carolina Friends School Ratings & Reviews

We interviewed many schools before ultimately selecting CFS, including Cary Academy and Durham Academy and could not be happier with our selection. CFS truly educates the whole child vs. teaching the student to perform well on tests (though CFS students do perform well on tests). Our students have scored 4s and 5s on their AP exams, high percentile marks on their PSAT, ACT and SAT, but what attracted us to CFS was the strong sense of community and values baked into the schools curriculum and identity. Though we are not Quaker, the values resonate deeply with our family and glad CFS is there to support us.

Our 3 children all graduated from CFS from early childhood through grade 12. Two matriculated into Ivy League universities and our third attends a highly selective liberal arts college. CFS has not only prepared our children to excel academically, but has taught them to love learning. CFS has nurtured our kids to become active agents of change within their communities and supported the development of their character and values. We can't thank CFS enough.

I am incredibly grateful for CFS. My daughter loves school, loves her teachers, loves her days. CFS nurtures kids. Meets them where they are and through positive encouraging teaching and modeling, helps the individual want to be better, do better, do more. The classroom environment is geared to curious, genuine learning, and teachers are involved beyond books to helping kids create and lead positive, inclusive social situations. Flexibility. Outdoors. Movement. Fun. Celebration. Joy. Silence (settling in). Real learning. Quaker service-oriented perspective driven into the fabric of every day. True community. I could go on all day. I wish our country could simply roll-out the Friends School way. We would have a different planet.

We have had a tremendous experience at Carolina Friends School. I share a unique perspective as a former Assistant Director of Admissions at UNC-CH, a role in which I read applications and made admissions decisions. CFS's policy of written reviews by teachers instead of grades gives colleges a much richer understanding of a student's performance and potential than traditional grades and GPAs. Students coming from CFS are in no way disadvantaged by this policy. Likewise, although CFS does not offer traditional AP/IB classes, they do offer a rigorous curriculum that allows students to learn the material and score high on those exams. Admissions folks at competitive colleges are assuredly able to determine if a student is challenging themselves by choosing to take the most rigorous classes at CFS, just like at any other school.As far as our personal experience with our sons, we've been thrilled. Our older son entered kindergarten at CFS's Durham Early School. His teacher identified his unique learning struggles, of which we were completely unaware. She taught him from a strengths-based perspective to understand how to help himself learn, and to overcome his sense of low self-esteem. He came away from that year with a profound sense of confidence about his areas of weakness. This confidence and sense of self has persisted through his years at Lower School. Students are taught to understand themselves as individual learners, and the curriculum is tailored to their needs. Earlier this year, when his teacher recognized his advanced mathematics skills, he was given the opportunity to learn the next grade's material to keep him challenged and interested. I suppose what I really love about this school is its recognition of what is truly important in helping to develop children into fully capable, successful adults. At a Lower School parent meeting, a parent asked what would happen if a particular negative social incident happened on the playground. Renee Prillaman, Acting Director of the School, answered that they don't just take a few moments out of the "learning" to address those type of issues...those types of issues ARE the learning. Academics are important, and CFS recognizes that. But there is so much more to the development of the mind of a child, and that is also where CFS excels.
