Greene Street Friends School is an urban coeducational school under the care of Green Street Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. We strive to provide high academic standards in a school community where all relationships are influenced and guided by the beliefs of the Society of Friends. It is our hope that through their own experiences, the children will discover and affirm themselves and others as they come to know and value differences in ability, language, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, family structure, or family income. This deep respect for each individual springs from Friends' belief in "that of God" in everyone. Emphasis on simplicity, honesty in word and deed, a sense of responsibility for others, development of self-discipline, and reliance on non-violent conflict resolution underlie our life together. Small classes and close student-teacher relationships make it possible for us to acknowledge the uniqueness of each child and to encourage the development of his or her talents and abilities. The goal of our school community is to help our students develop as fully as possible -- academically, spiritually, physically and socially.
