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.

MEDIA-PROVIDENCE FRIENDS SCHOOL
www.mpfs.org/rsvp

Founded in 1876, Media-Providence Friends School is a co-ed Quaker day school for students in preschool through eighth grade located in downtown Media, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

 A close-knit learning community, MPFS offers students big views of the world ahead. Here, in small classes, under the caring tutelage of early childhood, elementary school and adolescent experts who love what they do, students from different backgrounds and faiths grow up together, immersed in an academic environment that speaks to all the aspects of their beings: intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual.

Every day, students at Friends are engaged in the processes of learning and discovery in contexts that honor the values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality and service. As they reflect upon what they hear, see and feel, make connections between lessons and life, construct knowledge and act upon their convictions, they learn that learning itself is a lifetime pursuit.

Please contact Angela DiMaria, Assistant Head of School and Director of Admissions & Program, with any questions at adimaria@mpfs.org or 610-565-1960 ext. 145.
