Teachers, school administrators and community of volunteers and parents are all passionate about education. Integration of tech in the curriculum is fantastic; the school has been recognized as an Apple Disntimguished school for several years. Teachers are experienced and caring, and set an impressive example for the children. Values are instilled regularly via a Character Counts program which teaches, encourages, models and rewards positive behavior.

My daughter attends TBES, and she/we couldn't be happier. The teachers are committed to the students' progress, keenly observe them throughout the school year if there's any problems and constantly communicate with us, the parents. I might also add that the entire school's spirit is a reflection of Joe Erpelding, whom loves and is committed to the children and is just a great person overall to be around!

Tierra Bonita has some innovative ways of teaching. Technology is the focus at this school with 1:1 iPads for all students 3-5. Because technology is the principal's focus, other very important foundational skills are left behind. Reading is not a focus at this school!!! There is a need for quality reading material (real books) at this school. Some teachers are very good but others need to be do the minimum to get by. Technology is good but overshadows everything else.

The focus at Tierra Bonita is on 21st century learning with a large emphasis placed on personal responsibility and leadership skills. Our staff has worked hard to create engaging and meaningful lessons that will empower students and produce problem solvers who will be college or career ready when they finish high school. I love being a part of the learning at our school!

I am a student at Tierra Bonita and I love it. The teachers are great, the activities are awesome, and our principal is amazing.

The principal at this school is very involved and genuinely seems to care about the school and the students. There are some very good teachers, but also some poor teachers who have been at the school too long and should retire. Parental involvement is high, but almost to a fault - helicopter parenting runs rampant to the point that I think the students will grow up to be spoiled and entitled (for example, parents are asked to clean up after art lessons, rather than having students clean up after themselves), and I am weary of the constant solicitations for donations to the school. The school's test scores are above the district's average, but this is probably attributable to the demographics - there are more educated and affluent parents, and few English as a second language students, which will naturally bring up the average.
