It is Upper School Experience Week at Tandem. Our 9th graders are in North Carolina studying Cherokee culture, Appalachian arts, and music as they camp, hike, white water raft and perform service work. Our 11th graders are in the Black Hills of South Dakota on Borderlands Ranch, experiencing the land and culture of the Lakota, visiting Pine Ridge Reservation and Wounded Knee, and immersing in the heartland. Our 10th grade visits Baltimore, where they tour historic Baltimore, explore the Inner Harbor, and perform service work with Friends School of Baltimore, where they stay. Our seniors are brainstorming for Senior Projects and focusing on the college application process, with a few local activities for fun.
