This is by far the worse school we have ever dealt with! For this to be a Christian school, the principal does not exemplify a Christian character at all. He tries, but a true Christian can see right through it. At this school we experienced racism & discrimination. The principal did absolutely nothing about it because he was a part of it! He is unfair in his treatment toward students as well as some teachers. We've seen many students & teachers come & go under his leadership. It seems that most of the good teachers have left what was once a great school (before the current horrible leader). I definitely would not recommend this school to anyone if you are considering this school. If you ever visit school, they make a really good first impression, but what is to follow after being there for awhile is not worth wasting your time nor sacrificing your child's education! If you are looking for a school that is warm, cares about it's students, family friendly & where your child can get an excellent education, TAA is not your choice!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
