What are people saying about Alexandria Friends School?
"Finding the Alexandria Friends School was a godsend! Our ADD son was convinced that he was 'stupid' (which his IQ scores belied) and absolutely hated school. He looks forward to school everyday and is doing well in subjects that were previously a challenge. When I asked what the difference was at Alexandria Friends, he said: '...the teachers treat us and respect us like equals.' It seems it is this one single element that has helped unlock my son's natural love of learning again. He is even learning to love subjects that he thought he had no interest in.
While the small enrollment size was initially of concern, I now realize that it is a gift... like having private tutors and mentors. As Yeats said, 'Education is not so much the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.' We are so pleased that AFS is providing the perfect 'match' for our son!"
