TPAAK offers my daughter so many opportunities to learn and grow. The elementary school band, choir, drama, and art opportunities are numerous. Children have the chance to preform and take on new challenges often. We find the Paragon instruction (a mixture of history, social studies, and art unique to TPAAK) to be a great piece of the overall education puzzle. I want my children to be great at science, math, and literacy but I am also trying to raise global citizens with cultural literacy and Paragon is a key to that. The teachers and administration are hard working, caring, and immensely talented. The board and PTLO work tirelessly to support the students, staff, and greater TPAAK community. I especially appreciate that the PTLO and Board insulate students from fundraising. My daughter has never been asked to sell or peddle anything as happens so often at other school. At times the school day and year seem a bit long, but I know my child is benefiting from the additional time at school learning, creating, and engaging with her peers. TPAAK students are excelling. Students have made great showings in art competitions, science fairs, OM competitions, band and drama opportunities.

Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
The school's leadership, on all levels, is dedicated to seeing students, staff, and the school as a whole succeed.


Develops character: Agree


- a
Students are awarded for showing positive character traits each month, and teachers do a great job of positively reinforcing strong character.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
The teachers and staff at TPAAK are highly educated, motivated, and caring. Their passion really shows in their creativity and hard work. The staff has really excelled at making the environment welcoming.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
TPAAK seems to have moved away from focusing on homework as an extension of the school day. Kids need time to be kids and I'm glad that my kids aren't weighed down my homework each night. For the most part homework is made up of occasional projects or small extensions of classwork.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a
The primary grades in the school don't receive any homework all (no packets coming home to be returned by the end of the week!!) In 4th and 5th grade, they begin to add homework to help develop skills the students will need in middle school. The school does encourage school-home connections.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The school focuses on a different Character Trait school wide each month. Teachers are good models for these traits as well.



- a
This school has certainly had some changes in the last past years--mostly for the better. The current leadership has really helped to bring the school up across the board. The art and music program are top notch as well as the social studies program. The kindergarten and first grade are also very strong foundations for the school.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some teachers very good. Some too inexperienced and not given enough supervision. Some experienced but not very skilled.



- a
Big on arts, performance, cultures and history. Teachers mixed bag at all levels. Band teacher is awesome! Inferior gifted and talented program. Art teacher is good and helps kids win contests but given little time so has to push kids really hard.
