This has been a terrible year for my children. There are some serious problems with the academic program or the rather the lack of one. One of our teachers was extremely lazy in teaching core subjects such as reading and providing materials for the classroom. I also question the qualifications of some of the teachers and the administration. To be fair, the art/music teacher is excellent, the campus beautiful and they try to foster a sense of community. I am sure that there are some fine teachers there but the program as a whole is severly lacking.
Both of our boys have been in this school for two years. They have really done well and we have been very pleased with the school in general. The school's emphasis on good behavior and zero- tolerance policy for unacceptable behavior has created a truly safe and warm environment for our kids. Besides that, they rank very high in test scores.
As a parent of two children at TCDS, I have to say that 2003/04 has been a challenging year. The administration had a difficult time dealing with a teacher that was not working out well, finally taking care of the issue after many parent complaints, our children are finally being instructed as they should have been from the start of the school year. Administration must listen to the parents, we do know our children. The school has a great campus and the mission statement sounds great. Please make sure that our children are treated with the same respect and kindness that is expected of them.
I always feel welcome. My children like to go to school and are much happier here than at other schools. People know who we are. We would like other extracurricular activities, such as Chess. The campus feels safe and comfortable. More adaptation to talented students' levels would be better. Truly, a great school overall.
Terrific, balanced focus on academics and social skills/growth. Unique campus, small class sizes, caring faculty, and administration invests and reinvests in the campus.
My daughter just transferred here and we couldn't be happier!! She is getting the help that she needs and deserves. Teacher is excellant!!
My wife and I looked long and hard and finely found the perfect school for our son. With the strong curriculum and beliefs that respect and courtesy hold equal value we are very please with our childs third year at TCDS.
