Networking and accrediting in conjunction with these Quaker schools around the world, and especially vis-a-vis the countries they are in, both at the high school I.B. and the C.C., MIT OCW-centric {http://video.mit.edu/channel/opencourseware/}, WUaS University levels, may make sense ...

... haven't been able yet to find Quaker schools where the language of learning is in Russian, Mandarin (Chinese), or French in the main United Nations' languages, but there probably are Quaker Monthly or Yearly Meetings associated with these languages (Friends House Moscow - http://friendshousemoscow.org/?page_id=55 ... Hong Kong Meeting - http://www.friends-hk.org/ ... France Yearly Meeting - http://fwccemes.org/fam/?mg=6), and there's Friends World Committee for Consultation - http://www.fwccworld.org/.

Glad, too, to have found Mid-India Yearly Meeting information ... which says there are 6 Quaker Monthly Meetings in this Yearly Meeting, and that it once oversaw three Quaker Schools in India ... :)

And, indeed, that these large bodies of Quakers are in India:


  • Bhopal Yearly Meeting
  • Bundelkhand Yearly Meeting
  • General Conference of Friends in India
  • Marble Rocks Monthly Meeting
  • Mahoba Yearly Meeting
  • Mid India Yearly Meeting

Quaker schools really care for students as individuals (vis-a-vis the 'light within' young people), creating an ethos or culture around this, which is centuries' old, and many students love Quaker schools, long after they've graduated.
