A Pre-K to Grade 12 Independent Quaker Day School Serving the Greater Durham-Chapel Hill Area

Reflections From Our Head of School

Mildred Ringwalt

The time was 1962 and we were in the midst of the disturbances, sometimes violent, of the Civil Rights movement...We shared our dreams of a Quaker school where we could seek and welcome children of every race and economic background, since we believed that all are one. Mildred Ringwalt

Mildred Ringwalt was a co-founder of Carolina Friends School. In addition to being a founding member of the Board of Trustees (and its first chair), she was a Carolina Friends School grandparent and member of the Chapel Hill Meeting.
