Founded in 1784, Moses Brown is a Quaker school enrolling over 700 girls and boys, with roughly 400 in the Upper School. The school’s founder — an innovative thinker, philanthropist, and entrepreneur named Moses Brown — envisioned a progressive school that defined excellence.

Here, faculty emphasize process as much as content; the curriculum prepares students for a globally interconnected world; and Quaker values impart an ethical mindset grounded in tolerance and respect for differences, the willingness to confront injustice, and the desire to do both well and good.
