Germantown Friends School, founded in 1845, takes its strong identity from five distinct elements: a vibrant intellectual community of teachers and students; an historic urban setting in Germantown; a diverse and multicultural faculty and student body who value difference as indispensable; a Quaker vision of what is possible for both individuals and communities; and a belief in fulfilling this vision through reflection, collaboration and action.
