Westbury Friends School takes a whole-child approach toward education. We recognize that there are many dimensions to each of our students. We seek to care for the spirit as well as the mind; we encourage social growth as well as physical development. Westbury Friends School aims to instill in each of our students a high level of respect for others while inspiring a love of learning.
At WFS, we believe that the children are the heart of the school. Education occurs not only in the classroom, but throughout all areas of the school and throughout the day. We seek to foster independent learners - children capable of recognizing strengths in themselves and others, accepting and working through challenges and appreciating opportunities for learning.
Westbury Friends School belongs to a worldwide network of Quaker schools. We are part of over 280 member schools of Friends Council on Education.
