FlexSchool is the learning community for gifted and twice-exceptional learners from grades 5 through 12, with a curriculum for post-graduate students as well. If traditional school environments have not been a good fit for your student, please join us to learn about our philosophy of embracing differences and meeting students where they are. We accept students gifted in one or more areas, including those who have challenges ranging from dyslexia to ADHD to ASD to social anxiety. We are a strength-based program, focused on helping students develop their gifts and talents with the assistance of our expert educators. We offer rolling admissions because we understand school fit issues don’t often conveniently line up with application season. FlexSchool's team of highly trained experts work with students to create a plan that removes barriers to their learning and allows them to soar. Teachers receive ongoing professional development throughout the year and each campus has learning specialists who work with students and teachers to make the classroom less frustrating. 1:1 courses are also available for classes that are not regularly offered or for students who require more assistance.

FRIENDS MEETING SCHOOL
The Friends School of Frederick County
3232 Green Valley Rd.
Ijamsville, MD  21754

The future is a great unknown. The best thing we can do for our children is to teach them how to solve the problems they don’t even know about yet; we can do this by stimulating their imaginations at a young age, and maintaining outlets for their creativity as they grow. Problem-solving stems directly from imagination, which needs to be cultivated at all ages.

Friends Meeting School was founded in 1997 as an intellectually vigorous, community-centered, inclusive alternative to the other school options in the region. Annette Breiling (who had previously founded what became the Lower School at Sandy Spring Friends School in Montgomery County) felt so strongly about the mission of Friends Schools that she had to start another. While she has since retired, Annette remains highly active in several Frederick County communities. The current Head of School, Mara Nicastro, carries on that passion for the students, working to maximize their curiosity and academic abilities.

The only Friends School in Frederick County, Friends Meeting School’s values offer students a solid foundation for growth in Mind, Body, and Spirit. All grades, K-12, get hands-on exposure to the world around them – they learn to garden, perform and create in between their accelerated academic courses.  The High School at Friends Meeting School has a 100% acceptance rate to top-choice colleges: every single graduate of their program has had their pick of universities!

Think differently. At The Nora School, these are words we take to heart. This intentionally small, inclusive, and personal college preparatory high school works to bring out the best in bright students with diverse learning styles. Students turn to us because they’ve become frustrated in large, impersonal institutions, while others seek a richer, more engaging education without the emphasis on standardized testing. In our discussion-based classrooms, we inspire a critical world view, and students find their voice in an intellectually rigorous, accepting, nurturing environment. With a thought-provoking curriculum, inclusive sports and arts programs, Intersession, mindfulness and more, The Nora School helps students find their unique paths and prepare for college, work, and life. Building deep connections between the faculty and students, we encourage responsibility and build confidence and excitement about learning.     
   
We’ve expanded, offering more curriculum choices and openings for more students! Discover the essence of our school. RSVP for an Open House or call us to arrange a visit. Come see how our students thrive. Celebrating the same mission for over 50 years. Think Differently.
