Our Outcomes

What happens at The Quaker School at Horsham?

Here, your child will… 
BELONG in a community created for them. 

No more trying to fit an uncomfortable mold: TQS is where kids with complex challenges can just be themselves. Your child will make friends, try new things, and feel safe and loved. It’s our “magic beyond mainstream school,” and it’s built on acceptance, equality, and Quaker values.

"It means a lot to know there are people out there who do everything in their power to help you learn in a comfortable environment."

"All of my teachers have helped me at TQS.  I thank each and every one of them."

"There is no other place that has the kind of atmosphere that this school has. This school is a family to me and I can't be more thankful to The Quaker School."

BLOSSOM socially, behaviorally, and academically.

TQS is where kids rediscover their confidence – in learning, as part of the community, and within themselves. That’s because our highly trained teachers, therapists, and support staff are devoted to providing the individualized support that allows each student to shine. 

"I want you to know how good I am at science. When I started science, it was hard and I didn't understand it. Now I understand it."

"TQS helped me become a better student. I know that I learn differently and that if I need something explained a certain way, I can ask for that. Before I came to TQS, I didn't know how to do that."

BUILD A FUTURE of previously unthinkable possibilities.

We promise: your child has a bright future ahead, and we will help them get there. Whether your child is preparing to live independently, get a job, or go to college, our goal is to give every TQS student the skills and support they need to fully thrive on their future path. From the first day here and beyond, your child will be OK. 

"After being at TQS for 4 years, I found an ability to dig deeper in my classes. I am more interested and attentive."

"I have opened up. I am open to answering questions in my classes instead of being quiet in the back of the room."

"TQS has given me so much courage to dream."

Are you ready for your child to be seen, valued, and relentlessly understood?

“Leading the Change is the most far-reaching strategic plan in our school's history,  yet I have never been more confident in our community's ability to accomplish our goals. Together, we will deliver bold leadership, authentic engagement, emboldened people, unparalleled programs, and audacious innovation - and we will impact the lives of even more individuals with complex challenges.” -Alex Brosowsky, Head of School
