We're More Than a Community. We're Family.

The Quaker School at Horsham is different because each student here is different. Yet all students, all student families, all staff and alumni are united by one thing: our caring, supportive community.

Quite simply, when you come to TQS, you join our family.

Before I came to TQS, life for me was horrible. I wasn't making any friends. I was getting bullied and I wasn't learning well. When I came to TQS, things really got better for me. I started to make friends and my grades were improving. At TQS, I got to figure out new things about myself like my love for acting. The people at TQS really care about people who learn differently and TQS wants to do everything they can to make sure kids with a special need can get a great education and that's what I love about the school! -2019 Alumnus

We're a family of students who become lifelong friends.

We have 88 students enrolled, and hundreds of school alumni. This tight-knit group of students, past and present, recognizes the special opportunities they have at The Quaker School – opportunities to learn, to grow, and to become their best selves.

We're a family of parents, grandparents and siblings who care about each student, and each other.

We have an active school calendar, with events such as the Book Fair, School Play, and Talent Show.

Families are also involved in the classroom. We hold three family-teacher conferences each year. The first is held prior to the first day of school and the student attends. 

We're a family of dedicated teachers and staff.

Our classroom teachers have an average tenure of ten years. Specialty teachers offer classes in yoga, health and wellness, and more. These are dedicated experts with highly regarded certifications and training who care deeply for our students, both in and out of the classroom.

We're a family of supportive individuals and organizations who believe in our mission.
