I now have all 3 of my children attending Tucson International Academy and they are all students at the top of their class. The only thing I have concerns about is the school doesn't have a bus. I like the atmosphere and the level of learning.
My daughter had a very positive experience learning about Chinese and especially about tea ceremonies. We loved the personal attention and saw a lot of growth academically.
This school is so cool yyou learn alot!i thought i was realy bad at math but i actualy pade attention and i get math now!
My kids love TIA. The kids get a lot of individual attention. They were performing poorly in their other school but are doing much better now. I appreciate the staff. They are very caring and always willing to speak with me about my children's progress.
this schhol under staffed, luches are poor, the rec area is horrible and 60% teachers do not atend to their students needs. Better off at a regular school.
I really like TIA. My sons have been going there a little over a year and they are being pushed greatly. The school isn't the most organized on some fronts, but teachers are great. My kids are learning at a fast rate and getting all the help they need. Thank you TIA!
TIA is a great school. TIA has made our son, Juan interested in learning on his own. He is always talking about how great his teacher Mr. Varner. Juan is knowledgeable in topics that his friends attending others schools shy of. His goals in life are much broader. His conversations are about traveling to China, and how he is learning Chinese to be able to comunicate with people in China.
This school is a huge disappointment. They offer Chinese and Spanish, however neither of my children have learned any Spanish in the three years that they have attended this school. They had a high quality Chinese teacher but she left last year. This will be our last year at this school.
I worked at this school and I really think that it needs a major overhaul. The curriculum & staff need to move into this century.
Tucson International Academy is making a huge difference in the education of my child. They offer Spanish AND Chinese! Our daughter even went on a school trip to China where she practices speaking Chinese in the real cultural setting of China. TIA has Music weekly for every class and is terrific about offering field trips that are pertinent to academic learning. TIA students also have computer lab EVERY DAY- not once a week like many other students. My daughter LOVES TIA, and as parents, we support the school by volunteering, raising money, attending special events and field trips, as well as by honoring the teachers for all their personal dedication to my child's education. Tucson International Academy has been a huge benefit for our family!
TIA has the potential of becoming a very good school. The language program is an excellent way to have well rounded kids.
This school is the best thing that has ever go on in my childs life. She is able to go to school with a smile on her face and come home to tell me all that she did. That is enough to make a life change!
I enjoyed this school very much. The kids are really great! I will miss it alot but im ready to start off somewhere else. Beacuse now I have the skills I need to go anywere!
Strengths: spanish and chinese programs are organized, creative, and challenging. The school is also great when it comes to teaching cultural lessons and providing the kids with diverse cultural activities. Weaknesses: too little emphasis on math and science. The math program is a joke, and the kids learn very little advanced math.
