New Garden Friends School
Open House Events

Choosing a school can be a daunting experience; NGFS strives to make it an experience that is easy, open, and friendly. The goal of the admissions process is for your family to get to know New Garden Friends School and for them to get to know you and your child.

NGFS is a community of learners. From preschool through 12th grade, students experience critical thinking and experiential learning beyond the classroom. Students address teachers by their first names. It’s simple, but significant. It stems from the belief that every person deserves respect. At NGFS, cultivating a passion for inquiry starts with respect and a commitment to students being known, cared for, and thoughtfully advised.

Join NGFS at an admissions event to learn more about what makes an NGFS education unique!
