It's a good school of you are hispanic, there is no support there for kids because the principal is smug. Kids get bullied and nothing is done but when a kid sticks up for theirselves it's the end of the world. This school shows what is wrong with the south west, when you cater to one group of people
Both of my kids went to this school. And it was beyond the best school my kids have ever went to. Teachers and Staff are awesome.
My child loves this school. And we are very sad to hear that maybe in 2009 we might wont be going there because of the boundary changes!
My son just started Kindergarten at Tarver and we are so happy with this school! First week was rough because he had never been in school. But his teacher Mrs Johnson was patient enough to let him adjust to his new environment and now he goes to school with a smile on his face. This school is awesome. The teachers really care for their students like they are theirchildren. The reward system is great. They teach you how to be kind, and how to always do nice things for people! Great parent teacher communication. Wonderful principle. Best school on the westside!
great school great teachers, great programs great principal great safety and disceplen we love this school!!! -way to go Bret Tarver
Tarver is a great school. I have two children and both teachers that they had went above and beyond what was to be expected from teachers! way to go Ms Martin and Miss Gaurinck
I couldn't of asked for a better teacher than Mr.Palmer. He made my daughers learning fun, and she enjoyed coming to school every day! He went far beyond what I expected a public school teacher to do. One downside of the school though are the parents. Mr.Palmer also taught my daugher computers. Many newly hired teachers seem to be young and inexperienced instead of veteran teachers. Is this school or disrict problem? You can request your teacher at this school, so be sure to do your homework!
