Tatnall Classrooms are Not Limited to Four Walls

Children are natural explorers who are eager to experience the sights, sounds and feelings of the natural world. Few things are able to capture a child’s attention more than the sight of a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, the sounds of a bird chirping or the feeling of a stone smoothed by a rippling stream.
 
At Tatnall, students age 3 through grade 12 experience the natural world each day. Our campus is uniquely positioned as the only day school in the area with both the natural setting and state-of-the-art facilities to provide indoor and outdoor learning experiences. Functioning as an outdoor classroom, Tatnall’s 110-acre, environmentally-diverse campus gives students the opportunity to bridge multi-disciplinary curricula and laboratory investigations with field experiences as they develop an appreciation of the world around them.
