the best school a student can go to i loves the staff and teachers and more
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 1, 2010

My son has been a student at Tucker for the last three years and enjoys Tucker. I personally think the principals and teachers are great, however the front office staff is extremely rude. I feel uncomfortable every time I walk into the office. i have never felt so uncomfortable at a school due to the front office staff. I also feel sometimes the more intellectual students get held back due to other students.
