Welcome to Plymouth Meeting Friends School. Founded in 1780, PMFS is a community of joyful learners, from Pre-K (3 years old) through Sixth Grade. Our students thrive in a challenging and supportive environment that allows them to discover their best selves. At the heart of the school are faculty, families and community members committed to promoting excellence in academics, arts and physical education through experiential learning at every developmental stage. We recognize that collaboration is key to lifelong learning, as well as to the future personal and professional success of PMFS graduates.
Grounded in Quaker faith and practice, we celebrate the light that every individual brings to the PMFS community. As we lay the foundation of each student’s educational journey, we hold on to the “radical” notion that every child has a voice that is valued and respected and that needs to be heard. Plymouth students are tasked to be curious, wonder and explore; and faculty partner with them as learners and guides, who support their academic, social-emotional and behavioral growth.
Throughout their PMFS journey, our students come to understand that kindness and respect are critical to resolving conflict peacefully; they recognize the importance of acknowledging and respecting different people and perspectives. From preschool classes through Sixth Grade, our students settle fully into a community where their ideas and opinions matter. We believe that treating our students with respect is key to their sense of belonging and showing respect for others.
