Founded in 1883, Sidwell Friends School is a PK-12, co-educational Quaker day school with campuses in Washington, DC, and Bethesda, MD.
Sidwell Friends School offers a challenging academic experience in a warm, supportive environment. We seek students who demonstrate the potential to meet high academic and personal standards and contribute to the vitality of the School. Because we believe that students learn from each other, it is central to our philosophy that the student body be co-educational and include diverse economic, cultural and racial backgrounds, as well as a variety of interests and talents.
For the 2013-14 academic year, 1,132 students (563 boys and 569 girls) are enrolled. Forty-seven percent of the student body are students of color. Twenty-two percent of the student body receive almost $6.2 million of need-based financial assistance.
Sidwell Friends students have access to a broad range of opportunities, facilites, and a rich and social experience that will influence their personal and professional choices for years to come. Our desire is to create an intellectually vibrant community where students are guided by the pursuit of uncommon academic and personal excellence, a commitment to diversity, an understanding of Quaker values and a deep appreciation of environmental stewardship.
