Friends Girls' School founded in 1869.

"The Friends School has a long and honored history in Palestine and it is interesting to trace the origins of our two schools of which we are justly proud. The history of the Friends School is one closely tied with the history of Palestine. Over the last century, the School has experienced Turkish, British, Jordanian, and Israeli occupation, world wars, and closures. The Friends School, in its checkered political history, has served not only as schools, but also as a center for refugees, hospital, and a center for community lectures, concerts and other cultural activities." [1]

In 2001, the position of School Director was created to unilaterally manage both the Upper and Lower School. The Director is appointed by the Friends United Meeting (FUM) of Richmond, Indiana. The first such Director, Colin South, a Quaker and member of the British Yearly Meeting, served the School in this capacity from 2001-2004. Colin South and wife, Kathy

Joyce Ajlouny, a Palestinian Quaker and member of the Ramallah Friends Meeting, assumed the responsibility of School Director in 2004. [2]
