The Tatnall School Reviews

Unless you are a far left liberal or alt left progressive, Tatnall is not the school for you. While Tatnall is diverse in ways you can see (race, ethnicity, gender, etc.), they have no space for diversity of thought outside of progressive, and alt left views of the world. Our child was actually bullied by staff because if his compassionate conservatives views. The new head of school is an ego centric bully, and that attitude prevails across much of the staff and student population. Those who do not fit his mold are quickly targeted for bullying and harassment. Safety is a major concern. Almost anyone can enter the school almost any time they please. No security officer or real-time safety camera monitoring. The campus can be accessed from grounds adjacent to the campus and, absent a security officer, can roam as they please.

Tatnall has helped shape who I am as a person. The motto is "Omnia en Caritate," meaning "All things in love," and I can say without hesitation that this is true. Before I came to Tatnall, I attended a different private-day school in Delaware, but I can assure you, Tatnall is different. Here, I work with instead of against my teachers. All the teachers know me personally as a student, my strengths and weaknesses, and how I learn best in the classroom. The teachers are truly the reason I came to Tatnall and it would honestly not be such an amazing school without them.
My family has been a part of the Tatnall family for a long time. We used to live and breathe Tatnall- you could find at least one family member of mine at any sports game, performance/show, school event, or fundraiser. However, in recent years, the administration has tried to change the school and turn the school into something it is not. The essence that I used to love about the school is gone, and it's sad to say, but I won't send my children there after seeing the corrupt new administration. Even the students are unhappy- there is no more school spirit.
