Welcome to The Tatnall School! It is a great honor to serve in the role of Head of School and to have the opportunity to lead the school in the years ahead. As a new member of the Tatnall community, I am most eager to meet and interact with our wonderful students and families during the 2020-21 academic year. I was drawn to Tatnall by the School’s compelling mission, the palpable sense of community forged by strong faculty-student bonds, and the stunning campus.
For 90 years, Tatnall has served as a beacon of educational excellence in the greater Wilmington area. The school provides a holistic, well-balanced education encompassing exceptional academics, outstanding athletics, unparalleled arts, and authentic relationships. Perhaps most importantly, we offer a warm, caring environment in which students feel valued and known. To that end, we perpetually strive to live up to our motto Omnia in Caritate, which translates to “All Things Done in Love.” In this family atmosphere, students develop morally while preparing to become responsible, contributing members of society.
Every day, hundreds of parents entrust their children to Tatnall; it is a responsibility the faculty, staff, and I take seriously. We pledge to do our best to care for and challenge students in age-appropriate ways every day. We also pledge to approach this endeavor with joy and enthusiasm to make the school day an enjoyable as well as an enriching experience.
And last, but not least...Go Hornets!
Andrew D. Martire, Ed.D.
