Both my kids go hers. My son has ADHD and teachers are willing to work with him to help him do his best. The Vice Principal and other staff go out of there way to assure kids get the best education possible. Overall, they truly care about the kids. At any school there can be a bad teacher at this school teachers are GREAT and seems to support the kids regardless of the situation. I have also known parents with gifted children that stay at this school and do not move them. They are great about teaching children of different strengths and do more then is expected. Parent involvement is VERY high at this school and I know that helps too.
Every teacher, K - 3rd so far, have been truly incredible (except one who was average, Randazzo 1st grade). They can ID special needs early and work with the parents to help the child. Such a neat environment!!
Mr Hensley (principle) is AMAZING!! He knows every childs name! He goes to every PTO meeting. His methods and way of managing the school are beyond compare. This school is more like a family (in which you really like the people and everyone helps everyone else)
Tarwater has exceeded all of our expectations. Since joining the student body three years ago, my daughter has continued to excel in her studies and become a confident contributing member of her class. The principal makes class visitation and participation a top priority. And thanks to the extra effort provided parents, the teachers have more productive class instruction. We love this school!
