Let Your Lives Speak at Sandy Spring Friends School.

Sandy Spring Friends School (SSFS) is a progressive, coed, college preparatory Quaker school for students from preschool (age 3) through 12th grade, with an optional boarding program in the Upper School. Our pastoral 140-acre campus is in the heart of Montgomery County, Maryland, midway between Washington, DC, and Baltimore.

Our motto, "Let Your Lives Speak," expresses our philosophy of educating all aspects of a person so that their life—in all of its facets—can reveal the unique strengths within.


Our People, Our Planet Day

On Wednesday, May 23, our whole school will come together for a day dedicated to a dual focus of environmental literacy and greater understanding of the unique social, global, and cultural composition of all SSFS community members.
