The Value of The Quaker School

The Quaker School is a special place, created with love and intention. An investment in a TQS education is an investment in the joy and confidence of your child, and his or her ability to become a lifelong learner.

At TQS, we are committed to ensuring this opportunity is within reach. For this reason, financial aid is readily available for all grades. We encourage you to contact us to learn more.

"Samira first arrived at TQS with an inability to communicate as she struggled to read and regulate her anxiety. Four years later, Samira blossomed into a capable communicator who has written more than 500 creative short stories. Samira now prides herself as an astute researcher and author thanks to the individualized education and support she has received at TQS."
