Friends School of Wilmington is a warm, nurturing, educational community that prepares independent thinkers for a global, knowledge-based future. Continuing a 300-year Quaker educational tradition of fostering intellectual and spiritual integrity while affirming the value of each individual, the school offers a well-rounded program and a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Challenging, relevant, hands-on learning activities, including frequent projects, field trips and personalized growth opportunities, create a dynamic setting for learning that helps students to develop an awareness of the interdependence of life that extends to the world at large and empowers the next generation for global good. Permeating the entire approach to education is the school's basic philosophy that young people who are convinced of their own value will, in turn, seek and speak to the good in others. Accordingly, individual differences are honored, cooperation is fostered, responsibility is expected, and personal standards of excellence are developed.

The school has two campuses spanning ages 18 months through 8th grade. Preschool is an established Montessori program, and the elementary school builds on this developmental approach to learning. The teacher-pupil ratio is quite low (1:12). A very active Parent/Teacher Organization and a high rate of family involvement help build community and keep tuition low. The pre/elementary school is located in a 6,000-square-foot building at 207 Pine Grove Drive next to Winter Park Elementary School's playground. The middle school is located on a 5-acre campus at 350 Peiffer Avenue off Oleander Drive near Greenville Loop Road.
