From a one-room school, we have grown to a vibrant and diverse student body of 235 students. We offer programs for students aged three through seniors in high school. The educational programs at Virginia Beach Friends are characterized by rigorous academic challenges balanced with principles of personal responsibility, leadership development, creative expression, social awareness, and spiritual recognition. We strive to awaken each student's exceptional qualities in a nurturing atmosphere while challenging students to attempt more complex problem-solving, to try new things and to take academic risks in their pursuit of becoming life-long learners Virginia Beach Friends School maintains an excellent faculty to student ratio of one faculty member for every eight students. Small classes ensure that each student receives the individual attention that he needs to be successful. Direct engagement between student and teacher characterizes our school. Each School within the school has its own building for core academic instruction. Individual buildings for each division allow the school to tailor the buildings in age-appropriate ways, from the Cottage to the Upper School Building. This gives each age group its own identity while enjoying the advantages of being a learning community for all ages. Separate facilities for elective classes allow for a diverse range of elective offerings from pottery to video production and are shared by all ages. The Wilson Center, dedicated in 2003, contains additional classroom space and a gymnasium. The campus also features two playgrounds for the Early and Lower Schools, a blacktop with a tennis court and basketball goals for older student recreation, and a regulation soccer field. One of the jewels of Virginia Beach Friends School is the library. Located in the center of the campus, our library is a favorite meeting place for students of all ages. The library collection boasts over 25,000 volumes, nearly ninety books per student.
