The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.

Welcome to High Point Friends School. Our school was established in 1963 with the purpose of providing a Friends Education to inspire students to reach their full potential in a safe and nurturing environment by using the principles of Quakerism to instill a moral compass. We believe that each person has the capacity for goodness and a responsibility to attain that goodness.
As educators in the 21st century, we are charged with preparing students to become citizens of the world and stewards of their own environments. High Point Friends School is a leader in education, we believe the best preparation for our students is to develop the whole child. Our teachers are more than conduits of information. High Point Friends School is a community where educators and students develop collaborative relationships that foster trust, tolerance, appreciation and respect. Collaboration is an important skill as employers consider this a vital skill set along with being able to articulate their thoughts and ideas. In addition to collaborating with peers, our students are digital citizens using technology to bring the world into the classroom allowing them to make real and relevant connections to the world.
High Point Friends School has transformed young minds while creating an active student body through the tenets of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardship. These tenets are known as Quaker Testimonies and they are essential in developing student leaders that will serve as role models committed to becoming lifelong learners and the agents of change in a global society.
Please call the school to arrange for a tour and to discuss your student’s future at High Point Friends School. We are eager to respond to any questions and I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
