I loved this school! It was an amazing experience though it's different form your typical "high school experience". It is filled with rich, preppy, white kids who live off their parents money for the rest of their life in Delaware. They believe they are walking gods on this earth, but that is because they never see the real world! Send your kids to this school!

Loved my time at tatnall. There’s a reason why they call it the family school! All the teachers really care about the students. Everyone is super friendly, and it’s a great size.
I went to Tatnall for a total of 11 years, and I left before high school. Overall, my experience was pretty average. There were about 40 kids in my grade; I enjoyed the small classes because that meant more attention from the teacher and a decent work environment, but I got tired of the classmates that I had known for years, and I had a lot of trouble making friends. The social groups were always very cliquish and exclusive, and there was basically no diversity in race and wealth. I was never challenged academically as well; the admissions criteria is very low and I personally felt like I was held back by a lot of my peers. Because there were so few people, the extracurriculars were not good, like with kids who weren't athletes being forced to play two seasons of sports a year and holding back the team. At least the campus was beautiful, with all the surrounding nature and an amazing theater.
