Becoming an Antiracist School—for the Whole Community

Head of school Michael Gary pledged to make Friends Select an antiracist institution, and has since moved faculty and staff to join him in working toward the eradication of structures, systems, and policies—both within and outside the school community—that contribute to racism, biases, and white supremacy.

Michael Gary Speaks

“We believe in the Quaker values of respect for all, simplicity, the peaceful resolution of conflict, and a constant search for truth.” When I read this segment of our mission statement, I reflect on how we are living it during this transformational time at Friends Select School.
