Profile: At Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS), we believe students learn best when creative thinking, active listening, and positive interactions are reinforced in the classroom. Through close collaboration between teachers and peers, students develop a deep love of learning. Our students learn to shape questions about concepts and ideas, to reflect upon their learning, and to put their learning into action, developing initiative and self-advocacy skills in the process.

“We seek daily to create an environment in which children can follow their curiosity into experimentation and engagement, applying their energy to full participation in collaborative learning, hands-on activities, and opportunities for academic enrichment.” – Brenda Crawley, Head of the Lower School
