Moses Brown School




Born a Baptist, Moses Brown became a convinced Quaker later in life, and thenceforth devoted his great intellect, business acumen, and political skill to issues of economic development and social justice.  One of America’s leading abolitionists, and the godfather of America’s Industrial Revolution, in 1784 he championed the opening of a school that would educate Quaker children–and non-Quakers–with ethical values at the center of their experience.

Over 230 years later, Moses Brown School is still fulfilling that vision.

At Moses Brown, 111 faculty members serve roughly 775 boys and girls ages 3-18, with a student-to-teacher ratio of 8:1.
