Newtown Friends School
1450 Newtown-Langhorne Rd, Newtown, PA 18940
Occupying a seven-acre site in Bucks County, Newtown Friends was founded by area Quakers and parents. The curriculum comprises course work in language arts, math, science, foreign language (Spanish and Latin), social studies, music and drama, art, computer and physical education. In grades K-8, the school divides each grade into two sections of roughly 16 to 18 pupils; in the prekindergarten, there is one class of approximately 16 children. Instruction at all levels combines hands-on experiences, group and individual projects, interdisciplinary approaches and traditional methods. An important aspect of school life is an intergenerational program that provides students with opportunities for interaction with individuals at Pennswood Village, a Friends' continuing care retirement community that occupies quarters next to Newtown Friends. The community service curriculum features one or more annual service projects per grade and a service learning class in grades 7 and 8.
