As any parent will tell you, teenagers no longer speak on the phone. Instead, they communicate through their fingers with typed words.
Friends' Central enjoys a proud legacy of excellence in the pool. From dominance in both girls' and boys' swimming – 14 consecutive championships for boys' swimming – to a vibrant yearlong aquatics program, swimmers of all ages flock to FCS to learn from outstanding coaches and have the best experience possible in the water. This year, five alumni/ae – Max Bernard '08, Ryan Cassidy '13, Olivia Gillison '10, Victoria Gillison '13, and Mary Stroman '08 – have returned to FCS to continue this legacy of excellence in swimming and to pass along what they learned as swimmers, and as students, at Friends' Central.
In the world of current events, the word global is everywhere. It implies a level of cooperation and interconnectedness that is belied by news of wars, political groups, and neighborhoods where people are so polarized in their approach to issues that they cannot find common ground. Ultimately, our ability to transcend difficult and complex issues hinges on whether or not young people will be defined by their differences. One way to reshape their understanding of difference is to give children the opportunity to collaborate, play, and grow with classmates from different backgrounds.
