Rooted in Quaker values, Tandem Friends School prepares young people for higher education and fulfilling lives of integrity, creative expression and service. ~ Tandem Friends Mission Statement
At Tandem Friends School, we believe that the finest education is achieved through an active partnership between faculty and students. We honor students by holding them to high standards. Teachers are dedicated to the intellectual, aesthetic and moral growth of each student. In turn, our students are expected to enter into this partnership with a sense of responsibility and respect for their mentors and for the entire school community.
Our community has a remarkable tradition of educating young learners to become powerful and purposeful adults. Students 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.
The essence of our philosophy is captured in the school’s unofficial mottoes: “Freedom with Responsibility” and “Kindness and Wisdom."
