The Friendship School (TFS) is a NAEYC accredited program whose staff nurtured the development of 484 children in the 2022-2023 school year. As part of LEARN's Magnet Schools Assistance Program grant, The Friendship School began the journey of transforming into a museum-themed magnet school. Students now spend time out in the community for museum experiences and the community now comes into the school for student-created learning exhibitions.
