About Chicago Friends School

Chicago Friends School is an independent kindergarten – 8th grade school in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago.

The school is built upon the principle that a child’s academic, emotional, physical, and spiritual development is all of one piece. We challenge students to think creatively and deeply, value the role of community in their own education, reach their highest potential, and begin the journey of discovering the very best in themselves.

The school is guided by the Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and service.
