As parents we could not be happier with our choice to send our children to Tri City Christian Schools. Our oldest daughter attended a different private school for K-2 & both of our daughters were in the public system for the next 4 years (both elementary & middle schools with 10 ratings). The education they have received at TCCS far surpasses that of the public system. The small classes sizes as well as the dedicated teachers who share in our faith & enthusiasm for christian education, has made all the difference. The emphasis on spiritual growth with the addition of the bible classes, chapels, small groups, & mentors has created an atmosphere that our girls could feel safe & thrive both academically and personally. Both are involved in the sports programs, one is excelling in the arts & the other in the multi-media. The choice to send our girls to TCCS was not made lightly & has impacted our family finances, but we have no regrets. In fact, we believe wholeheartedly that the this is the best & most important decision we have made for our children... one that will impact them for the rest of their lives.

I agree with all the postings in regards to Tri-City Christian. I am happy with the academics and moral education. I am very concern with the bullying atmosphere at this school, almost gang mentality by kids attending this school since Kindergarten, cruel, mean spirited and bullies. I enrolled a beautiful girl in with great skills and self esteem but I noticed significant change in her personality. NOT GOOD! She has been made fun of via internet, at school few girls are her friends because she is not part of their little circle because she is new and different(blended family). Her best friend is moving to Solana Beach same story, she invited my daughter to move-out of this school. I am going to get more involved but its hard with my schedule, As a parent I am super concern because she believes that she needs to be thought and strong if she stays? DON'T LIKE THIS I WANT MY DAUGHTER HAPPY!!!! I don't want to find a new school, I hope the pricipal addresses what bullying looks like:( frustrated parent

Amazing college preparatory school that provides a good academic as well as moral base for all students K-12. Provides an exceptional education that prepares all students well for college, as well as offers college level classes at a higher degree of difficulty than even found within college system, preparing students for what they will face in the future of their education.

Solid academic college prep. Advanced course work. Caring staff Supportive, wholesome learning environment New facilities K-12, and our four kids attended all and enjoyed their time at TCCS. They look back with appreciation for their time there and felt they were well prepared for college. Administration is passionate about their vision of creating spiritual champions. Coaching is expert and develops outstanding character.

TriCity Christian School is an incredible asset to the academic environment in North County. Along with solid Christian values, they provide quality academics (85%+ pass rate for AP classes), superb staff and highly competitive athletics. Offering smaller class sizes, educational and missionary trips which span the globe, and a safe family environment, TCCS is an exceptional value. All of my children attended TCCS K-12 and were well prepared for the 4 year universities they attended. It was the best investment we have ever made, for their education and their future. It is exciting to see the new building and field being completed. It will add strength to an already powerful program.

The mission of Tri City Christian School is to "partner with parents to train up spiritual champions for Jesus Christ." As an involved parent at TCCS, this is my focus every day. Along with the rest of my brothers and sisters in the Lord, ( I am referring to staff, teachers, administrators and other parents) we strive to use our God given gifts and talents to serve Him. It is in this spirit of Christian community that my 2 children have grown academically, spiritually and socially. It is a privilege to call TCCS our home. My son was mentored by the best high school coaches and was well prepared for college. My daughter is taking part in sports and performing arts. With Jesus as the foundation of our school and our relationships, we run the race with fervor ... keeping our eyes on Him! BTW, if you would like to hear some testimonies about how the Lord is answering prayers at TCCS, ask us about our Master's Plan. There are great things happening at TCCS!

My son has attended TCCS from 1rst to 9th grade. This school was a great choice when he was a little guy and I was a busy professional, and it remains awesome today. Private schools have had to make changes due to our suffering economy and TCCS is not an "elite" institution in terms of it's constituency. That is one of it's best features... It has a great mix to help our children learn some real world truths in a safe atmosphere. Reading prior reviews, I sense that some recent changes have been hard to swallow for some. Change always has detractors but to my way of thinking, TCCS is being purposefully and prudently managed. It was not always so, and I am thankful to tell you it is now. I have volunteered in many areas and am always finding points of pride. The teachers teach with Jesus in their hearts and their desire is to help the students excel. It is not easy to pay tuition when public school is paid by tax $, but really, where else should we invest our $ but in our child's hearts and minds? TCCS, with rigorous academics, inclusive athletics and elevating art programs is the best value in San Diego County to my way of thinking. Thank you, TCCS!

GREAT friendships have been made. Teachers are caring and very capabale beyond a doubt. No perfect schools, perfect people. My family has had a great experience at TCCS, BUT the admin that has taken over the last 6 yrs has created a repressive spirit/low morale over our precious teachers! Things aren't so "Christian." You have to stick up for your brothers and sisters. We are called to stand for truth on all levels. If you only have a myopic view of your kids happiness than you will not relate to this review. Life is more than your kid "making the team" or "getting a scholarship". Forget sharing your concerns at school board meetings; you'll be labeled divisive. Don't get involved unless you want truth or you don't mind your kid getting a detention for having on the wrong collar, wrong socks, etc. It's provoking to teens; it puts a label on them as not being good enough and turns them from respecting "Christian" authority. They are judged for things Jesus could less about. Ask those who have retired and couldn't wait to leave after 20+ years if u want truth. My apologies to the teachers who remain faithful to our kids! You are priceless; God bless you! Missing Don Hulin!

Finally a Christian school that puts The Lord first! We are so blessed to have our children involved in a school that is academically challenging, offers all sorts of sports and student activities, and communicates almost daily to the parents via email. I have a student in elementary, junior high, and high school. The school uniforms take a lot pressure off the stress of what to wear each morning.

Teachers are great, but the environment is toxic. I almost cried when my daughter told me she felt like the world had been lifted off her shoulder when starting the new school year. She has increased self-confidence and self-esteem since leaving. She thought it was her fault the other students picked on her but has has no problems this year. TCCS is not the Christian environment I was expecting.

We love TCCS! Our kids have grown and been challenged both acamediczlly and more importantly spiritually. Watching what has happened the past couple years with such great quality families coming to the school has really reinforced our decision to stay here until our kids graduate. So impressed by the quality of the kids who graduate with their opportunities.

I went to this school from kindergarten to senior year (13 years) and played Football, Basketball, and Track and Field for the Eagles. After attending college I am proud to say that Tri-City Christian has prepared me immensely for college and provided me with skills and lessons I could apply to my life to keep me on the right path with my Christian faith. Also the Athletics get better and better every day winning more and more championships every-year due in part to the amazing Godly coaches i had the privelage of playing under. Also in response to the criticisims by some that our school is quote "Clique-y" and has "Bullying problems" after 13 years of being at the school I have not even once been victim to or even seen a hint of these but rather my senior class was always thanked for how much we welcomed younger kids and brought them up along side us. Most people that hold these complaints already have a predisposition towards Tri-City Christian for some unknown personal reason that is unrelated to the school. I could not have asked for a better Godly Christian Education than that I got of Tri-City Christian. ENROLL YOUR KIDS NOW they will thankyou later I promise :)

After reading the comments, I was amazed. This school has one of the highest tuitions and it is only going to go up under the current administration. I took my daughter out of this school because of the bullying. My daughter used to come home crying every day and administration did nothing to help her. People are leaving because there is a problem. Wrong person in charge.

We have 3 children at Tri-City. We just got out of chapel for our daughter. The Pastor talked about how Jesus is the bridge between death to life. The children sang and performed wonderfully. We feel The Spirit of community here. When one part of the body suffers, we suffer with them. When someone rejoices, we rejoice with them. Thank you, staff, for your continued commitment to HIM.

We are extremely pleased with the school. It really is the lowest priced private school in the area. We did alot of research and found the price to be very reasonable. The teachers are amazing. It was neat to see that 100 percent of the students last year ALL went to very good colleges. They have a great program to prepare our children for college, starting even at 7th grade to help the students and guide them to the right career. Thanks Tri City, we love you.

We have two children at tri city and are very happy. We love the new uniforms. We paid approx. $200 per child for the uniforms, less than what we pay for regular clothes at Justice. The teaching is Christ centered. Bullying is not tolerated. They assigned a family to us when we first started to make us feel at home. We are all family in Him.. I was so touched when a dad passed away last year and the whole school rallied around the family. Praise God for Prayer. By the way God hates those that cause division.

LOVE THIS SCHOOL!! My son graduated in 2011, and my daughter is finishing 12th grade this year. I am pleased with the way the admin handles parent issues, and understand that issues/requests must be prioritized. Admin has been wonderful in accomodating my daughter's special needs to the best that it can. Teachers are available for help, and all go the extra mile for the kids. Although many parents don''t understand the concept of running the school as a business (even though it's very Christian), I applaud the decision, as it is absolutely necessary in order to run "in the black." My daughter is thriving, despite the work-load, because she is challenged, surrounded by like-minded kids who really care for her, and known by her teachers who reach out to help her often. Some families have been displeased for different reasons, but I am convinced that this school is an excellent choice for any family that has determined that a Christ-loving environment is what they want.

We have 2 kids at TCCS, one on the elementary campus and one on the secondary campus. Our oldest attended another school when she was younger and we have been so happy with our decision to have both kids at the same place. There is an amazing presence of God's work at the school in the classrooms, activities, sports, and with the teachers. All you have to do is look at programs kids are offered, the missions they go on, and the impact they have in their communities, and it is clear what the focus is. Private school is an investment and when we see the quality of the kids who graduate each year, and relationships our family has with others at the school, we love the returns we have seen and look forward to many more.

Both of my children currently attend this school and will not be returning. This is not a christian based school and they do not enforce rules. They care more about the children having the outwear with the TCCS logo than they do about the serious bullying problem that is happening. For the 2012-2013 school year, they have raised the tuition yet again and are forcing the parents to purchase uniforms thru a specific company so they can get kick backs. They are very greedy and I would not recommend this school!

My son has been attending Tri City since his Kindergarten year. He is now in 7th grade. We are VERY happy! I read many comments on some of the difficult choices the school has had to make. I respect them! God calls us to be good financial stewards and as a result, yes, cuts had to be made. But I have NEVER had a teacher or leader at Tri City that did not show their love and support to my son. The encouragement and support has been amazing! Any teacher or coach my son has had shows their first priority - to Love his student as Christ does and to influence my son for for Christ. My son is excelling and becoming a Godly young man. I attribute a lot of this to the Godly influence he gets each day while at school. They say when you find a perfect school, church etc. leave! We'll ruin it... I keep hearing horror stories regarding the ungodly influence in the public school. I haven't seen any of it as of yet at Tri City! Thank you Lord for providing so miraculously for our boy to attend Tri City! Come, give it a peek, talk to parents and teachers & I'm sure you will find what we have!! May God bless you in your decision!

My children currently attend Tri City, we are happy in a lot of areas, but the constant increase in tuition, the inequitable enforcement of school rules and dress code and now the requirement of specific uniform companies has left us disenchanted. The cost is prohibitive if you have more than one child and want to be able to save for college and retirement.

Qt one time, TCCS was a jewel of a school. I enrolled my son there due to excellent reviews. I WOULD NOT do that again. Teachers and administrators are not responsive to parent requests. If you choose to enroll your JH or HS student there expect to throw family life out the window. The homework load is overwhelming (and much of it is busy work). My child does not have time to attend church youth group, will have to quit his particular sport this year, has stayed home from school 2 days this year so far just to catch up on assignments and have enough time to prepare for tests. We had to cancel a planned Thanksgiving vacation because teachers assigned enough homework over the break that it was not worth paying high priced hotel fees to sit in and study. Although I asked for extensions, teachers responded with an absolute "no" ... one of them in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. Tuition goes up every year and yet we are treated as a food trough instead of valued clients. The primary reason I chose TCCS was the 7-12 campus because I believe the less time a child moves schools, the better. I have a tough decision to make. Moving my child will break his heart; leaving him will break mine.

The review below "Private School with a cross" could not be farther from the truth. I'm sorry if the person had a bad experience and I hate to see another student leave, but we've been attending TCCS since 1997 and we LOVE IT! To have your children love their school and love learning about Christ is an amazing thing. The parents and teachers are amazing too. It's like one big family under God. The admin had to make some very tough choices (I would not want to be in their shoes) and had to cut some positions. The economy is bad and people can't afford private school and it is very sad because we've lost many wonderful people. We hope and pray things will turn around and we can start to grow again. The admin I feel is doing their best to save $ and keep tuition down. I can understand some people thinking TCCS spends too much on sports unless sports are important to your family. My son or daughter would not want to attend a school with no sports programs and neither would I and let me tell you TCCS has awesome sports programs! Great academics and a strong Christian environment!

We've been at TCCS for over 10 years but will be leaving as TCCS has unfortunately become nothing more than a Private School with a cross. The pastor of the church no longer supports TCCS, no longer leads the worship, and has told us that the school and church have a mutual agreement to leave each other alone. The new leadership at TCCS has mismanaged funds in favor of sports at the expense of academics, has raised tuition many times and openly abused (verbally) both parents and staff. Many good teachers have been let go and enrollment has dropped to near 1/2 its peak before the new administration's arrival. This is NOT a coincidence nor a result of the current economy. It is too bad that the non-Christian elitist attitude of TCCS leadership has corrupted what was once the jewel of Christian education in North County.

Absolutely wonderful & dedicated teachers, the majority of support staff are good too. The administration & school board aren't as responsive to the needs of parents & students as they should be. This is so despite the many respectful & polite suggestions & complaints aired by parents at school board meetings. The superb teachers desire better support than they are getting from admin. This was once a great school, presently a cornucopia of issues & many new rules, strictly enforced, make it feel more like a military school than the wonderful Christian environment it was for so many wonderful years. We hope that it can turn things around for the sake of all concerned & will be praying that things will get better.

I have had my children here for 5 years and are having to make the change to another school due to the changes that are occurring at the school. The administration does not listen to the parents and make quick corrections. 5 years ago, the elementary campus had over 600 students and 3 classes per grade, now it is down to under 250 and 2 classes per grade. Tuition has gone up and the services provided has decreased dramatically. The library used to have a paid librarian, now it is run by parent volunteers. If you want your child to be safe during recess, this is not the place since most of the staff was let go last year and now they are relying on parent volunteers to keep things safe. The curriculum is at least a year behind other private schools in the area and if you have a child who is smart, they will be bored. School is geared more towards the middle to low student. If you are concerned about security, they just spent $60,000 to get a gate in front and cameras to watch the gate, not how I would have spent the $60K since many of the class portables have dry rot and will fall apart at any time. Love the teachers, just cannot tolerate paying more and getting less.

Great school. Our children have attended for four years and are now in 7th and 10th grades. The 10th grader is in Honors classes and we are contacted by top ten colleges for admittance in programs and scholarships. We do not find it "clicky" at all. IN fact we cannot partipate as often as we'd like due to work schedules and other parents are warm, loving, giving and not judgemental. We are blessed to have the school and the parents in our lives. The teachers are outstanding and really care about each student and their circumstances. After much research we've found the academics far stronger than the public education available locally.

Unfortunately the academics are not up to par with even the good public schools in the area. Although the parent community is cohesive, it is a VERY "clicky" school with both parents, students and administration. It is all about "who you know" and "who you are friends with". The Christian aspect is stressed far more than academics, so if you want a strong Christian based education it is worth the cost, but in terms of academics it is not strong. Some teachers are great, but the majority are just okay. The school is undergoing a lot of changes that are greatly affecting the kids and the whole environment. It is not the same positive school it was just a few years ago.

my children attended for the elem school and preschool for only 1 yr. the teachers my kids had seemed ok. but there was alot of 'chatter' among parents about which teacher to 'try to get' for the following years etc. so, apparently they werent all good????? anyway, i was greatly disappointed in the campus. it is not in a desirable location and lacked security. on a few occasions i saw a homeless person casually walking across the campus. i left messages w/the principle about this and never heard back. its just not in a good spot. i would talk to alot of different parents w/kids in different grades if you are thinking of sending your kids there. if it matters to you...at the time we were there you didnt have to be christian to attend (elem). i found there to be alot of disruptive kids in the class and uninvolved parents.

Tri-City Christian has been an excellent school for my children. The teachers care and support each child's needs academically, emotionally and spiritually. The communication and team efforts are evident thorough daily emails, well organized weekly forms and on-line review of my childs performance. Academically my daughter was reading 5th grade level in 2nd grade. Her teacher at the time pushed her potential to the fulliest. I know this would not happen in public school. The computer lab is amazing and the full music program(lots of musical plays throughout the year) are a few of the extras we really appreciate and enjoy. Parent participation is over the top. Half the fieldtrips have as many parents as students attending. Overall, knowing my children are safe, cared for and positively growing spiritually and academically - is worth every penny.

I've been at Tri-City since kindergarden (I am now a junior) and I'm glad I haven't gone anywhere else. Everyone knows each other and the teachers make sure to connect with all of us.

I had attended Tri-City myself so when it came time for my children to attend, I assumed it was still the best. I found that assumption not to be true. My child's Kindergarten class had 24 students (vs. his local public school had 19!), the campus was not well-maintained and I'm sorry to say that the staff was unable to provide the attention my child needed. I could HIGHLY recommend doing extensive research with the other private Christian schools in the area prior to enrolling at Tri-City. Sadly, it is not what it used to be and I'm very pleased that we changed schools.

My children when to Tri City for 2 years and I pulled them and put them in public school. They are much happier. About 1/4 of the parents have left due to issues. There are many challenging kids, especially boys, and unfortunately many 'good' families left. What was most surprising on going to a public school was that they were academically ahead in the curriculum and now my kids are more challenged. Also there used to be more classes per grade, but due to lack of enrollment they are now down to 2 classes instead of 3 in the lower grades. K-6 is a different school than 7-12. My review only applies to K-6. From my understanding 7-12 is wonderful.

My children have attended Tri City for the past five years. I initially put my children at Tri City because of the student to teacher ratio's in the classrooms and because I wanted a Christian based education. They are going to new uniforms, in my opinion, that should be set on the back burner until they put one more classroom in for 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades and have four or each grade.

The academic programs at this school are exceptional, however, they seriously lack in other areas. There is very little art, music, or drama at this school so if your child is gifted in these areas, this is not the school for you. In addition, most of the sports programs/teams at this school are pretty lame which is due in part to their ability to keep quality coaches. There is high parent envolvement at this school, which is very nice. However, the administration at both schools, especially the elementary school, leave a lot to be desired. As long as your life/family situation is pretty close to perfect and you require no assistance from administration, it will be fine. But should you have financial trouble, personal problems, or question something the teacher is doing...look out, because you will not be treated in a Christ-like fashion and may even be asked to leave.

The level that my class was taught at, we were not completely ready for our college courses, mainly because they were not offered to us at the time. I have gone back to visit the school and they have greatly improved their program. The science department is by far the best there.

The standard for excellence and spiritual emphasis is superb. The teachers give 110% everyday and make the parents feel that they are a part of the family as well. I know my child was loved and well cared for. There is none like it which is why there are waiting lists to get in.

My son just started this school in 6th grade and absolutely loves it. The teachers believe in each and every one of their students equally and I can not believe how positive my son has become and how much more he believes in himself. I know it is from attending this school. Thank you Tri-City Christian.

This is a great school if you want your child to start experiencing high school type of atmosphere. If your child likes individual attention and cooperation from teachers I don't recommend it. I'm pulling my child to go to a Charter school in the middle of her school year.

Tri City challenges my kids to excel academically but more importantly, emphasizes their spiritualality and relatioship with God. The elementary campus teachers are enthusaistic and really support young children in their developement. The Secondary campus has excellent teachers who love their subjects and make learning fun. I highly recommend this school for your christian children.
