Revision as of 20:21, 9 October 2005

Carolina Friends School is a private school on the western outskirts of Durham, NC. Founded by Quakers, and reflecting the Quaker philosophy, the school 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 help with the 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.)

CFS in 1979-1982 was quite a magical place. I met people there who totally changed my life. (Bad things also happened, and they didn't handle Harena's crisis very well when she was there, but they at least erred on the side of allowing the individual to make their own choices, rather than being heavy-handed and authoritarian.) It would also seem to have been very good for for Mel, who graduated from the CFS upper school in 2002(?), and Zander (age 7 when he first went there in 2004), who was not getting along very well at Hope Valley (Durham Public Schools). (My wiki offer still stands, for what it's worth.)
