This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Westfield Friends School is a coeducational independent day school for students in Preschool 2 through grade 8. As a Friends school, Westfield develops students to their fullest potential by focusing on active learning grounded in Quaker values. A Westfield Friends School education ignites the natural wonder of childhood, channeling their curiosity as they grow into confident, capable learners.
We believe that a diverse community leads to a confident, empowered child. Finding strength in our differences, we use kindness and compassion to help students forge lasting friendships. A learning environment marked by respectful interactions makes us stronger, smarter, and more resilient. We celebrate each child’s unique spirit honoring the principles that bind us together.
Minutes from the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge, our historic, beautifully wooded 8.5-acre campus is convenient to students coming from Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey, and from the greater Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania.
The world we seek for children begins here.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

Your student can look forward to small class sizes that include inquiry and project-based learning, personalized instruction, and well-rounded experiences in the humanities, art, music, Spanish, physical education, and technology throughout the grade levels. Our faculty strives to bring out each student's individuality, working to develop creative thinkers, problem solvers, peacemakers, and humanitarians who will contribute compassionate, responsive, and responsible leadership throughout their lives. Students graduate from Westfield well-prepared for high school and continue a 100% acceptance rate at their first-choice high school.

What is your mission statement?

Westfield Friends School lights a brilliant path for children. As a Quaker school, we honor the Divine essence in every student; we find power and wisdom in our differences; and we seek truth through active, joyful, collaborative inquiry. Our graduates go on to lead lives of conscience and consequence. The world we seek for our children begins here.




An inspiring academic setting, a diverse, empowering community, and a Quaker moral compass—these are the essential elements of the Westfield Friends experience. Together, they produce life-changing results. We are proud that our graduates pursue meaningful careers that help to create the world we seek.
