Entering Our Next 50 Years:
Preparing Our Students—
for a World That Needs Them
Learning / Relationships / Resources
What we are striving to build is a school where children truly learn -
about themselves and the world, about the relationships between past, present and future.
~ Founders John Howard & Duncan Alling
(from the original prospectus of the Tandem School)
For Tandem, finding the Friends has been like finding a home. It seems familiar and comforting and it has brought
a focus to our work and to the life of the School.
~ Former Head of School, Rosalyn Berne
(from the formal request to Friends Council on Education to be considered a Friends School)
A happy and excited child learns far faster than a bored child.
~ from Tandem's first admissions materials
Many thanks to everyone who attended the event on the evening of Thursday, October 3rd.
There, we thanked members of the Tandem Friends School community for their help with the strategic planning process, presented the high-level priorities in our new strategic plan, and provided some examples of what you will be seeing at school as we move from planning to implementation.
This webpage has additional details about the plan, as well as information about how it was created.
