We've recently completed the first session of Interest Groups of 2015/16 in Lower School. Children picked their favorites and got to be in one of their choices for three Friday afternoons.

Carolina Friends School is a vibrant and inclusive learning community empowering students to think critically, creatively, and independently. We foster active exploration and quiet reflection, individual endeavor and collaborative engagement. Inspired by Quaker values -- pursuit of truth, respect for all, peaceful resolution of conflict, simplicity, the call to service -- we teach our children that it is possible to change the world.
