Message from Andy Jones-Wilkins, Head of School
Welcome to the Tandem Friends School website. Please take a few minutes to explore the site to learn about our school. And, if something interests you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Tandem Friends School is truly a wonderful place. Grounded in Quaker values and characterized by strong academics, a well-rounded extracurricular program and, most of all, deep, meaningful relationships between teachers and students, Tandem is a school that consistently seeks to keep students at the center of the educational endeavor.
Over 40 years ago, our founders, John Howard and Duncan Alling, articulated a simple and profound vision, to create a school in which students and teachers genuinely collaborate in the learning process. Today, as young people face the myriad challenges of the 21st century, that vision is alive and well every day here at Tandem. In the classrooms, on the stage, in the athletic arena and out in the community, members of the Tandem family are living proof of the brilliance of this simple vision.
My wife Shelly and I and our sons Carson, Logan and Tully, are delighted to be a part of the Tandem Friends community - Carson is in Tandem's 10th grade, Logan is in the 8th grade, and Tully starts in 5th grade this year.
Should this website pique your interest in our school please drop us a line or contact Admissions Director Louise Cole to set up a visit. We would love to welcome you into our community.
