Mission Statement:

The Quaker School at Horsham is a Friends Elementary and Middle school for bright students with learning disabilities.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Our school fills a special need in a unique way, as one of only ten schools in the world which is both a Friends school and a school exclusively for students with learning disabilities. Our Friends history enables us to offer authentic learning opportunities in an atmosphere that honors each student for their differences while providing curriculum-wide opportunities for deeper understanding. This history lays the foundation for a caring approach to students with learning disabilities. In addition, experienced professionals deliver research-based curriculum in small classroom settings with both the integration of assistive technologies and speech/occupational therapies. Together this approach guides students from a place of failure and frustration to success in both academics and life.
