History Established in 1784 In the 17th century, George Fox, the founder of the Religious Society of Friends, encouraged early Quakers to “live adventurously; let your life speak.” This call to live deliberately found expression in our school’s founder, Moses Brown. His life spoke through his actions as a community leader, entrepreneur and philanthropist, and through his leadership at the forefront of the abolitionist movement and the birth of the textile industry in America. The same Friends values embraced by our founder continue to inspire the work of educators at Moses Brown. The Friends view of integrity, as an example, is very important as it relates to seeking the full truth and fostering a genuine spirit of inquiry. In this educational setting, children are encouraged to ask many questions, to search multiple sources, to respect the opinions of others, and to discover their own truths. It is a model that builds confidence and character, while helping children develop their unique inner promise and value
