Amazing School!!!!! Great Education, loving and supportive staff / teachers. My child loves going to school now, no more waking up sick or tired. He can't wait to get to school in mornings. This school is the greatest gift to give a child.

I have two children enrolled at TCE, my oldest has been there for two years. I have been very happy with his education. The school consistently rankes higher than most schools in AZ in all areas of curriculum. I feel comfortable that I am doing all that I can to afford my children the best education by sending them to TCE.

My son is currently attending this school. There are many positive aspects of the school. However a consistent curriculum, staff and leadership are in question. Language, arts, technology, and extracurricular activities are not in the offerings. The school has so much potential. Prayers for the future.

I have had no problems with the teachers in the lower grades (I have 4 kids)--my children like school and seem to be learning what they should. My 4th grader has done some really unique and educational projects this year; lots of great field trips, too. Not a lot of extracurricular activities, but there is potential for this to improve with a change in administration.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
