Tandem Friends School offers a rigorous college preparatory curriculum in an environment built on Quaker values. Our students receive an education in which intellectual, ethical, artistic, and athletic ideals are pursued. We foster capable students who value a spiritual, egalitarian, kind, and creative community; thrive on independent, imaginative thought; are fully engaged in learning; and seek the very best from both themselves and their community.
