    We recently moved to Warrington from Florida. My sons attended an A+ school in Florida. I was surprised when we moved here to find that Tamanend was a much better school than the one that my sons attended in Florida. My sons love the school and the faculty. It really is a great school. The teachers are very involved in the success and well being of the students. This is definitely a 5 star school.

    This school is amazing. I just moved out of it only to find out i would never find a school better than it. There are tons of people to hang out with there and the students are really smart and friendly. If you want to move near this area. This should definetly choose this school over others.

    The quality of academic programs is great! Students receive a wonderful academic experience and can choose from many extra-curricular activties. Parents are very involved - this is a community school.

    I loved this school when i went there and now my sister loves it. Not only are the academics great so are the extrcurricular activities. Everyone can play join or just have fun. there are all groups of people and the teachers were great. Although it is an older school you can feel right at home. It also has a classroom for students with PDD disorders and it is completely handicapped accessable. (No Steps.) This school follows traditions and strives for excellence.
