Welcome to The Tatnall School.
Embracing change and growth while
building traditions and fostering enduring values is and has always been at the
core of The Tatnall School experience. School founder Frances D. S. Tatnall herself said to a group of alumnae
many years ago that, “changes are amazing and almost bewildering, yet when we
come to examine them we find that there has been no change in our objectives
but only a widening of our horizon in order to keep pace with the broader scope
of our opportunities.” The
opportunities that are available to our students in this new millennium seem
almost boundless. At the same
time, we need to remain mindful of our roots that serve as an anchor to keep us
focused on our basic objectives, while allowing us the flexibility to explore
the opportunities ahead.
parents we all want the best for our children. We want them to have the broadest range of options from
which to choose as they invest increasingly in their own growth and
development. Beyond a solid home
environment and a loving family we as parents want our children to have a
supportive educational community within which the best in them will be nurtured
Tatnall School connects the dreams of every parent and the aspirations of every
child. Tatnall provides an
environment within which growth is stimulated and potential is nurtured. These qualities are ignited by
excellent teachers and fanned by motivated peers. Life-long bonds, critical attitudes and essential skills are
forged through the sharing of a common journey under the guidance and influence
of engaged, caring adults.
