Westbury Friends School is a small, uniquely diverse independent school in Long Island, New York. We are a Quaker school under the care of the Westbury Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. As a Friends school, we use what Friends refer to as testimonies, or guiding spiritual principles, to inform our daily practice as educators. These testimonies are: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship. Friends schools embrace these principles as we weave them through the daily life of the school.
WFS values the diversity of race, religion and socioeconomic status its students and families represent. Families come together to share cultural traditions throughout the course of the school year. Joyful expressions of diversity deepen our connections to one another and strengthen our community.
