Employment Opportunities at DVFS
As a Quaker school for students who learn differently, there are a number of fundamental Guiding Principles that underpin our culture and community, and which are important for anyone considering employment with us to know:
- Our Quaker heritage and beliefs compel us to see every individual as a person of infinite inherent worth. This is the core principle for our school and drives everything else that we do.
- We are a diverse community of people who care deeply about one another and about issues of equity and inclusion. We welcome and honor differences in many forms: race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, nationality, socioeconomic status, physical and learning differences.
- We prioritize relationships. Our Quaker principles and practice provide a framework that inspires us to be our best selves – supporting one another during challenging times, and celebrating each other’s successes.

The mission of Delaware Valley Friends School is to prepare students with learning differences for future work and study.
The school develops those personal strengths which enable students to succeed in its college preparatory curriculum. The school also recognizes that it has a responsibility to share its expertise with teachers and students beyond the school community.
Delaware Valley Friends School carries forward the Quaker heritage of compassion and justice. We acknowledge that of God in everyone and nurture the unique personal worth and potential good inherent in each individual.
Delaware Valley Friends School welcomes students in grades 1 - 12 with learning differences, particularly in reading (dyslexia), writing (dysgraphia), math (dyscalculia), memory (long-term and working), processing speed, ADHD and executive functioning challenges.
The School shall not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, sexual identity, age, disability or marital status in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school administered programs, or in hiring, use of volunteers or board membership.
