Waited to be accepted and already , first week in, Am regretting this decision. I can only speak for the East campus. It always seems tense. no One barely knows who the principle as she is not in the front Lines but stays behind doors. It is very cold and I would say Extremist military style tone towards children. They seem to exert authority over anything versus encourage A child. The carpool is a mess, waiting 20 minutes before Moving. Not looking promising.

We have a kindergartner and so far, we have been nothing but pleased with TCA north. We followed their recommendations on what age our child should start and she loves school and is excelling. Academically she has made huge improvements in handwriting and math and has been reading for a few months. She loves the special subjects especially art class. However, the most important quality to us as parents are the virtues she is learning at home, to be respectful, kind, loyal etc. are being reinforced at TCA. When the class is disrespectful they are expected to apologize and sometimes miss recess. Her teacher is kind and loving but at the same time expects the children to behave at their full potential. And bonus points for rejecting Common Core so that teachers can continue to do their job to the best of their ability.

my niece is going to this school - she is telling me every time I see her how much she wants to be home-schooled - the reason? Bullying is common among the girls - this school seems to suffer from " mean girl syndrome" through most grade levels - even in elementary! The teachers are too busy to cope with the curriculum and testing to care much about the happiness of the students. My nephew left the school last year because he doesn't exactly fit their description of " normal" - he was struggling with spelling due to dyslexia and the recommendation of the school was to put him in a public school as they don't have the resources to deal with him - maybe that is how they intend to keep their test scores up? He LOVES his new public school and the teachers have only good things to say about him- he finally has friends and feels accepted- nobody understands why he was labeled difficult! We will be taking my niece out after this school year - she hates to go to school every day!

My child is in first grade and she is having a terrible experience with her drill sergeant teacher. I have asked her to show more love to my child (as she cries every day about school) but the teacher says "she'll adjust." Finally I talked to the principal, and asked for her to be moved due to incompatibilty. This was also unsuccessful. The principal has a loving personality, but as he explained "His hands are tied." TCA has small classes so they can micromanage the way the child holds a pencil, holds a book, tucks in their uniform, correct their posture and in the case of my childs teacher, requires them to say "yes, Ma'm." None of this is improving my child's reading but it is making her sad and nervous. My child spent 4 years on their "wait list" and I wish we hadn't wasted our effort.

Our oldest daughter was accepted into TCA at Central in 5th grade. It was one of the biggest blessings in our daughter's life. TCA opened their arms and wrapped them around our little girl. The principal and staff are absolutely phenomenal. Our daughter "lost" a year while in public school but the staff at TCA worked with her to catch her up and by the time 6th grade was in, she was caught up. The principal knows everyone & is always willing to chat with you about your student. The kids absolutely love him! The staff is amazing, sweet, and unbelievably generous with their time and talent. I cannot say enough about this amazing school that has done so much for my daughter. You cannot find a better elementary school in Colorado Springs. I know, we've looked. Trust your children to TCA. You will not regret it!

My child was bullied here by the children and the principal did not do anything about it! School is supposed to be a safe place for children. Also the school food is repulsive. I will not be coming back.

Excellent school, great, caring teachers and small classes. We couldn't be happier with the school.

Both my children have been at TCA in Colorado Springs for years. They both started out in kindergarten and are now in upper elementary. We have been at both the East and Central campuses. The education and personal attention that our children receive at TCA is excellent. Their class size would be so much more in a public school. The fact that all the elementary classes have a tutor/helper at least part time is a huge benefit. Many parents volunteer hours each week to assist the teachers and administration. The parent involvement is almost unparalleled with other schools. I know the wait list can be lengthy to get your child in to TCA. Your chances are best if you live in District 20 and get your child/children on the list as young as possible - but I tell you it is worth it. The teachers not only are passionate about teaching - but passionate about your children. I've always said that TCA is like getting a private school education & personal attention without the enormous cost - and also without the "sheltered" viewpoint that many private schools can have.

As with absolutely anything in life, one must put heart and mind into the experience to genuinely glean the most out of the adventure. Am I right? Most definitely. I graduated from TCA in the class of '09. I now maintain a 3.0 GPA in college, and I honestly attribute this success to the definite way this school views education. Education is a challenge that takes heart. BUT I see compliance in parenting killing the success of child education. You, parents and guardians, HAVE GOT TO let your kidos know that the challenge of education is to be welcomed. It is to be welcomed, because you let your child know, "Yes, you can do it, and yes; I am here to help you, because I care." Empower your little scholars, because the world is out to let them know they are only one person, they aren't amazing, and therefore, they amount to very little. The student who challenges is that is the one who has a solid support system at home-one that encourages the challenge and encourages the student. So, good job to the people out there doing it right. - thanks mom and dad.

My Daughter is in Kindergarten at TCA and I can tell you she has learned a lot. I am not seeing any of the things going on in my daughters class that I read in a previous review! ( I too volunteer regularly in my daughters class) My Daughter continually learns and has developed skills in every area including socialization!

Great school for an average student who wishes to receive an average education. I was a parent volunteer for 3 years in my kids' TCA classrooms. It never failed that the smart group of kids (about 1/3 of the class) had the poorest behavior. They got great grades and felt wonderful about themselves, but were not being challenged. One of the teachers stated she would love to move my son faster in math, but she had to "teach toward the middle". So, if you don't mind your kid working toward mediocrity put him/her into TCA. We left. That wasn't our educational goal for our children.

Absolutely fantastic school! I have a 3rd grader and 5th grader who have had nothing but positive experiences at TCA. They are challenged in their learning and much is expected. This is going to prepare them for life. The teachers and administration couldn't be more caring. Each child is known individually and respected and loved. This is not the school for those who would rather their kids have it easy than be challenged.

The concept of the Mission statement/curriculum is good and some of the subjects are "rich" in value. However, the stress level starting in Kindergarten is overwhelming. The focus is only on math and phonics. All other "rich" subjects they profess are 15min/day. Your child will be tested every day and will not be supported but singled out as if they cannot keep up with 1% of the gifted ones. You should never have to tell a six year old they need tutoring. Elementary should not be college level but a chance to flourish, learn, and develop an interest in learning not despise it. This would be the worth the wait if they allowed more of their Mission statement to take charge and not the need to pass every college SAT scores or strive to have value in test scores. I would stay away from the hype.

I have had two children attend the East campus of TCA for Elementary School. I love the fact that the elementary school goes to 6th grade. I love the curriculum, especially how rich it is in teaching history, grammar. I think it is weak in writing, reading. I too am concerned about the qualifications of the teachers. The teachers are part of teams which is valuable, especially to new teachers. For the most part the teachers are good but we have had our share of fair teachers. I think the school is still struggling to combat bullying issues especially amoung girls. I don't think staff want to admit how bad it can really be. The school overall is fantastic but would be better if it didn't just teach to one level. Those who struggle and those who are brighter than the avearage are ignore.

Many teachers don't have their teaching licenses and truly don't know how to teach reading and math, outside of the curriculum. If a child varies from the 'typical', then it's considered that it's the child's issue - not something the teacher needs to evaluate and then make accommodations to ensure the child is learning.

TCA students that could move faster in class are not allowed to do so. Students that struggle often don't get the attention they need. Also, they are very quick to surprise you late in the year with a summer school recommendation. At spring parent/teacher conferences, I was told my daughter was reading at a 4th grade level (she's a 2nd grader), but still needed summer school. The thing they don't immediately share is that summer school costs $300./subject. So, they hand my daughter a B in math and reading and still recommmend summer school for each subject. That's too much stress for an 8 year old. This is a school that loves to toot it's own horn and put themselves on a pedastal. In my opinion, they aren't worthy of that pedastal. Based on my 3 years of experience, this school is nothing special.

I can't imagine there being a better school! Our kids attended two elementary campuses - Central and East. Our son has learning differences and their special services and resource room is unsurpassed. In one state we lived in, he didn't qualify for services but at TCA if he's just at grade level, he got tremendous help. They discipline with a lot of grace and try to find out why the kids are acting the way they have and resolve the problem at the source. The teachers also make the school what it is. Their hearts are into the kids and teaching them to enjoy learning through all 3 learning styles. On top of only having about 18 per class, each class has a part-time assistant. And the parents are just as dedicated which I think makes TCA the anomaly it is.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
