About Us

New Garden Friends School was founded in 1971 with the goal of educating children from differing backgrounds together in a positive, affirming, and safe environment.

We are co-educational and the Triad's only independent preschool through grade 12 school built upon the long-held standards of extraordinary Friends schools.

We have two campuses in Greensboro: the Guilford Campus houses our Preschool and Lower School (age 3-grade 6) and the Page-Frederiksen Campus is for our Middle and Upper School (grades 7-12).



We are a community of learners. Experiential hands-on learning opportunities and a dedication to building resilience are cornerstones of an NGFS education.

Developmentally appropriate curriculum is introduced at each level and accommodations are made to support and challenge students. Service learning and outdoor education are important facets of our all school program across grade levels.

We Meet Students Where They Are

The commitment to honoring and developing each person’s gifts is at the core of our mission at New Garden Friends School. At NGFS, our concern for students’ social and emotional wellness and growth does not take a back seat to academic endeavors. We are committed to healthy, balanced, and developmentally appropriate levels of support and challenge.

Students have access to personalized plans for student support and extension based on strengths and/or challenges; these are created by the Learning Specialists in collaboration with faculty.

Our Community

We are a school focused on inclusion, innovation, and respect. 

“Whenever someone asks me to describe my daughter’s school, I can answer easily in just one word. Community.”
