Fanny Edel Falk Laboratory School is a K-8 tuition-based campus laboratory school affiliated with the School of Education at the University of Pittsburgh. Since 1931, Falk has been known for providing a learning environment that is grounded in community, diversity, progressive and experiential education, individualized instruction and a low teacher-student ratio. Being grounded in progressive education principles means the school community has a child-centered approach to learning that focuses on the social, emotional, and academic needs of each individual. It also means an emphasis on collaboration, intrinsic motivation, and active learning. The Falk community is also guided by the thoughts and intentions found within the faculty created booklet, Wishes for our Children.

Each year, our 60 faculty and staff members work with more than 6 intern teachers, 25 student teachers, researchers, and visitors to perform the major functions associated to Laboratory Schools: the development of innovative practices in education, research, the preparation of new teachers, professional development for practicing teachers, and the education of children using best established principles of education.

Nursery - Grade 12


Friends’ Central School is an independent, Quaker, co-educational, college-preparatory day school for students in Nursery through grade 12. Located on 41 acres across two campuses in Wynnewood, Pa., Friends’ Central cultivates the intellectual, spiritual, and ethical promise of students. Guided by Quaker values, since 1845, we have been educating for excellence, inspiring tomorrow’s leaders, honoring each individual, and encouraging our students to peacefully transform the world.

Friends' Central is committed to building and maintaining an inclusive, diverse community. A basic tenet of Quakerism stems from the believe that there is "that divine spark" in everyone, recognizing the spiritual equality of all persons. All constituencies are responsible for an awareness of and ongoing dialogue around equity issues of race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, privilege, religion, physical ability, and family structure. We honor each perspective and life experience, and through an intentional curriculum and differentiated methods of teaching, we seek to empower and engage all groups.
 
Friends’ Central is committed to education that is challenging, thoughtful, and dynamic. Our faculty set increasingly high standards, encouraging students to approach new ideas with an open mind and unreserved respect for one another. Our students participate in a process designed to foster creative, critical, independent, and flexible thinking, and our graduates are prepared to succeed in college and the world beyond.
