The World of Friendship

Welcome to Friendship Learning Center

Greetings, Oriole Nation!

As your K-5 Principal since 2016, I am extremely proud of our district and the generosity of our community, and I wholeheartedly believe that the members of the Friendship Learning Center Faculty and Staff are exceptional individuals who are making the world a better place every day!

As a K-5 Learning Community, we educate 600+ students annually, and take great responsibility and care in doing so. Our instruction focuses on social, emotional, behavioral and academic growth. This shared purpose binds us together and focuses our efforts on preparing each student for college, career, leadership and life. Thank you for your investment and entrusting us with nurturing the next generation!

Serving with Gratitude,

Kerri jo Patten
