A Philadelphia Area Education Experience Where Professionals Can Thrive
At Delaware Valley Friends School, an explicit part of our mission is to share our expertise with professional colleagues beyond the school community. We have created this section of our website as a place to facilitate that exchange of ideas and share our faculty's experience and expertise with others engaged in the field of educating students with learning disabilities.
