“I am grateful to have come across Friends School of Minnesota. I felt immediately at home and inspired by FSMN, its teachers, and students. Our teachers bring energy and inspiration to their classrooms, bringing academic subjects to life and making them relevant for students. Our students are a testament to the power of a progressive Quaker education and the FSMN community.”
