Why TQS Is Right For Your Family

Finding the right learning environment for a child who struggles in a mainstream school setting can be overwhelming.

Families may wonder: Will my child fit in, make friends, and enjoy learning? Will they reach their full potential? Will they have an independent, fulfilling future?
We understand. At The Quaker School at Horsham (TQS), we are relentless in our commitment to each student's personal, social, and academic success. We believe that the right place for your child exists - and that place may be here.

Is TQS right for your family? Consider these questions:

  • Does my child need a very small class size?
  • Does my child have a diagnosed disability?
  • Does my child struggle with social communication?
  • Does my child have difficulty expressing themselves, or understanding others?
  • Is my child functioning below grade level in reading, writing and/or math?
  • Does my child need support in self-regulation?
  • Does my child need a specialized sensory diet?
  • Does my child struggle with attention, focus or organization?
  • Does my child have a hard time making friends?
  • Do I wish to be involved in my child's educational experience?

If you answer YES to most of these questions, contact admissions (admissions@quakerschool.org) or use the scheduler below to set up a virtual tour of our school.

TQS provides a connected continuum of support from kindergarten through the young adult years to ensure every student has a bright future. We look forward to introducing your family to our community!
