Parent-School Partnership

All parents are welcome as full participants in the learning community of Friends School Haverford and are automatically members of the Parent Teacher Organization. Because children learn best when all the adults around them are involved in their education, the faculty and staff work in partnership with parents to provide the best possible growing and learning experience for each child.

An understanding of the Friends School Haverford philosophy and academic curriculum is central to building the partnership between home and school. Please keep yourself informed by reviewing the School’s curriculum and other publications, by attending PTO events and other meetings throughout the year, reading the School’s website and e-mails, by discussing questions and concerns with your child’s teacher, and by generally communicating with us about your child’s joys, successes, concerns, and needs.

If you would like to volunteer for any PTO activity, please call a PTO officer, class parent, or the Admission director:  610-642-0354. You are welcome and encouraged to become involved in the life of the School.
