George Rowe, co-founder of TQS
George Rowe, in partnership with Beverly Morgan, started The Quaker School at Horsham in 1982. Together, in the basement of the Horsham Friends Meetinghouse, they started what they called the "Pipedreams Friends School" to offer another way of serving children with complex learning needs.
On Saturday, May 16, 2020, George Rowe, surrounded by his wife, Margie and children, Bill and Kathy, died from COVID-19. George was kind, gentle and giving. He positively impacted the lives of so many, both within and outside of the TQS community. Our past and current faculty, students, staff and families hold a special place in our hearts for George. Our future students, faculty and families will learn about George, his compassion and his vision.
George's pipedream came true through the strength of his and Beverly's efforts, and over the past 38 years TQS has changed the lives of thousands of children and their families.
