Friends Community School Open House Receptions 

It is admissions season at Friends Community School, a kindergarten through 8th grade Quaker school that educates students of all beliefs. Open houses for prospective families are scheduled for January 10, and January 15, from 9 – 11 am sharp at the school, which is located in College Park, MD. About 25 students from Capitol Hill attend Friends.

Friends has a student-teacher ratio of 8:1 and an average class size of 12 in kindergarten and about 18 in other grades. The school is in the process of growing to 240 students after adding a lower school science lab, an art studio, performing arts space and more classroom and office space to its LEED-certified building last year. -Eric Rosenthal
