A Message from the Head of School

Dear Parents,
For more than 90 years, The Tatnall School has been synonymous with an educational experience emphasizing character, values, and academic excellence. As Head of School, I am honored to continue stewarding the legacy of Mrs. Tatnall for the next generation of Tatnall learners. Our school community is dedicated to three core values that we believe are essential for delivering a dynamic educational experience and creating a community of trust and responsibility:
Curiosity - Perseverance - Citizenship
In our quest to unleash student potential, I am so impressed by how our teachers and curriculum create opportunities for inspiration. I have spent decades as a teacher, coach, and administrator in independent schools, and I believe in the impact of role models on developing students of character and purpose - role models who embody the type of curiosity, perseverance, and citizenship we seek to impart upon the students in our care. Tatnall has scores of such role models, and I love watching how our students observe their commitment, absorb their lessons, and aspire to excellence as a result.  
Tatnall is more than just an excellent college-preparatory education; it is an unparalleled student experience that fosters authentic relationships and encourages students to embrace their roles as responsible members of society in all its diversity. If you are looking for an outstanding school for your child and a community that will welcome your family with open arms, there is no better place than Tatnall.  
Welcome to Tatnall!
Sincerely yours,

Andrew D. Martire
