Sandy Spring Friends School is a progressive, coed, college preparatory Quaker school serving students from Pre-K through 12th Grade, with an optional boarding program in the Upper School.
At Sandy Spring Friends School, we are a community of scholars, performers, artists, athletes, thinkers and doers, each with different strengths and interests, but bound together by a determination to honor Quaker values and to see that of God within each of us. Accordingly, we are a debate-driven community that is respectful of differences; we are open and sometimes noisy, but also reflective seekers of quiet. We celebrate being a marketplace of ideas while providing a safe place to explore new concepts with an incredibly vibrant and dedicated group of adults. Faculty and staff are here because they are deeply committed to providing PK through 12th graders with an education that will serve them well in the world that they will inherit.
