Quakers have historically emphasized the equality of all people. The belief in "the Light within" has led Quakers to work for peace, prison reform, humane care for the mentally ill, civil rights, and economic justice around the world. Everyone has the same human rights and should be treated fairly.
Quakers oppose war and the violence of oppression. We believe that world peace begins with each of us. We try to settle all disagreements without using weapons or words that hurt others.
Integrity means being truthful and always trying to do our very best. We say what we mean and mean what we say.
We strive to be a welcoming, supportive, and inclusive community where everyone—students, teachers, staff, and families—feels respected and affirmed.
The Quaker testimony of simplicity reminds us to live wisely. In an increasingly busy and materialistic world filled with a vast amount of external stimulation, we all need space and time to discern what is truly important in our lives.
We need to take care of the things we use and own as well as each other. We believe in leaving the world a better place than we found it.
