Frankford Friends School, at its present historic urban location since 1833, provides a quality Quaker-based education to approximately 120 students, from pre-K to eighth grade. The academic curriculum maintains high standards for excellence, requiring solid mastery of basic skills, as it challenges students to broaden their horizons. Small classes (average class ranges from nine to 16 students) provide a warm, personalized setting in which each teacher knows the children well, shows love and care for them as individuals, and encourages their best efforts. Basic skills are taught in reading and mathematics in an orderly, sequential fashion by providing plentiful practice and introducing new skills when old ones are mastered. Teachers stimulate children to apply these skills to think analytically. Artistic, dramatic, and musical expression are often interrelated with other areas of the curriculum, and each child has the opportunity to participate in performances for parents and other students throughout the year. A high priority is placed on Spanish language exposure, from pre-kindergarten through the eighth grade. Other classes include physical education, swimming at the New Frankford Community Y, computers, art, music, and handbells. An extended day program is available, for morning and afternoon, as is busing (for children in grades one through eight).
