School Notes

  • Tandem Friends School offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum in an environment built on Quaker values. We are a coeducational day school serving students in grades 5 through 12. Our students receive an education in which intellectual, ethical, artistic, and athletic ideals are pursued. We foster capable students who value a spiritual, egalitarian, kind, and creative community; thrive on independent, imaginative thought; are fully engaged in learning; and seek the best from themselves and their community. Our community has a remarkable tradition of educating young learners to become powerful and purposeful adults. Children at Tandem Friends are honored and respected as they grow into adulthood. Providing an exemplary academic experience in a spiritual community based on Quaker values is an uplifting and sustaining mission that binds us together in a shared vision.
