About

Carolina Friends School (CFS) is a private school on the western outskirts of Durham, NC. Founded by Quakers, and reflecting the Quaker philosophy, CFS often does things differently from other schools. For example, Students and Staff "settle in" together for 15 minutes or more in the morning, with no formal reading of "announcements"; individuals speak as they feel the need. Upper School students also help with maintenance and instruction at the school as part of "School Service" classes (or did as of 1982, when I went there; I presume this still applies. -- W).
