Van Richards, In Memoriam

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Van Richards. Van was most recently our Grants Associate in the Advancement Department of TQS. Formerly he was the Director of Development 2005-2008. Above all, Van was a great loyal fan and generous supporter of TQS. He will be warmly remembered for his kind heart, great sense of humor and dedication to our school. Van dreamed big for our school; his aspirations will continue to be reflected in our work going forward at TQS.


Unlocking Learners, Building Leaders

Whether they've fallen far behind in school or are experiencing social difficulties, students with learning challenges and learning differences find a place at The Quaker School (TQS). Our Friends school in Horsham provides a sense of belonging to diverse learners who may have felt like outsiders in other schools. At TQS, a learning team is established for every student enrolled. Our experienced professionals analyze each child's diverse learning challenges, design an individualized plan, and invite the family to be part of the solution. Our research-based programs are carried out in a caring and supportive Quaker environment. A student who hasn't been appreciated for his or her unique gifts in the past will unlock hidden potential at TQS.
