Founded in 1784 in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, Moses Brown School today enrolls 796 girls and boys, in nursery through grade 12, in a rigorous, college-preparatory program. As it enters its third century, Moses Brown School exists to inspire students to reach their fullest intellectual and spiritual potential. We engage students with a rich academic curriculum, a broad offering of arts and athletics, and a daily life strongly rooted in the Quaker values of cooperation and community service. We affirm the Quaker belief that there is a divine presence in each person which influences our decision making, leads us to the truths we seek, and commands our highest respect. We consider the virtues of simplicity, integrity, group wisdom, and respect for differences paramount to helping students of all faiths and backgrounds discover their mission in the world.
