Michigan’s only Quaker-run school is closing its doors—at least for now.
Detroit’s Friends School told parents the news this week.
Parents and board members say it’s a huge blow to the school and larger Detroit communities.
But many remain committed to reviving the school, which would have celebrated its 50th anniversary this year.
“We may have to delay that for a year, but I think there are plenty of people who are going to be working to make sure this isn’t the end of the road,” said Brandy Robinson, a parent of three Friends students.
