In Middle School, drama is an integral part of the daily academic curriculum. In our unique arts program, Tandem Friends School honors and supports the cultivation of students’ growth and learning through the practice, problem solving, and artistry of theatre.
In the 5th grade, the class takes a trimester of drama that culminates in an evening performance for family and friends. 6th graders put on a Broadway Jr. musical at the end of their semester-long class. 7th graders take one trimester of drama, during which they brainstorm, create, rehearse and perform their original material as Cafe 007 (skits, monologues, poetry, etc.). 8th graders choose between theatre, 8th grade band and visual art each semester. The 8th grade theatre class puts on a show.
