Worst school hands down in catoosa county. They don't work well with the children and the principal needs social skills. ( Its awesome he is retiring) Both of my children were bullied very bad and it continued all year, I was always told something would be done. It never was. The classes start instruction time at 7:40 but school don't start until 7:50 so if the bus runs behind or the children want to eat breakfast then they miss morning work. My son also needed help in reading and they pretty much gave him answers to pass the test. He never got much one on one even though we were promised he would. I would never send my kids back to this school.

My son is a 5th grader at Tiger Creek and has attended TCE since Kindergarten. It has been an excellent school for him. When he was not being challenged enough in the classroom nor in Horizon, the administration was very helpful in meeting his academic needs. The principal is very personable and is involved in school activities and student success. The teachers have been very caring and positive. TCE has been a very positive elementary experience for our family.

I wish Tiger creek had a principal that could communicate clearly with parents and realized that all children are different. I have tried very hard to work with this principal in any way I can to help meet the needs of my child but to no prevail. I have had a very troubling and heart breaking experience.

I wish Tiger Creek would be fortunate enough to get a principal that could comunicate clearly with parents. I have had a very troubling time trying to get them to meet my childs needs.

Tiger Creek Elementary in my opinion has got to be the best Elementary school in Catoosa County. My daughter was at Tiger Creek for grades K-5 and had some of the best teachers. My son is presently at Tiger Creek and I can say the same about all of the teachers he has had. Most importantly, I believe the majority, if not all, of the faculty and staff at Tiger Creek are good Christian educators. We have the best Christian Principal that without a believes what is in best interest of the children is first and foremost. I bet he knows every one of them by name.
