Tyler school itself is very nice and its support staff is courteous, kind and accommodating and seems to genuinely care about the students. My issue is with my child's teacher in particular. There is a complete lack of communication. My child's teacher is sub-par, doesn't seem to care about her students, and is making no effort that I can discern to correct the egregious social and behavioral issues documented happening in class that include such gems as stabbing with pencils, inappropriate sexual behavior, spitting, and jumping on chairs.While my child maintains good grades, he was advanced coming into the school year and I feel as though he has learned nothing new, nor am I able to help him work on things he learns in class because his teacher refuses to send daily work home or outline what he is learning in class each week.I am going to make one final effort to resolve this with his teacher and administration in a joint meeting and if it cannot be satisfactorily resolved we will be home-schooling him from here on out.

This school is a lot better then i was expecting due to the low rating. So far it seems safe and the teachers are very interactive with the parents. I have twins attending kindergarten and I'm glad it is working out so well.

This is an awful school. All the other schools know if a student gets transferred from here it means they have alot of work to do catching this kid up. I work as an assistant at other schools and you should hear what the teachers say about this school. Its bad.

My daughter is not only the best teacher in this school but my two granddaughters Josie and Molly are the absolute best students!!

I have found Tyler to be a great, personalized school - one where the teachers, staff and parents are on a first-name basis. The staff knows all the kids and they look out for them. Tyler has a very active PTO and my kids always look forward to going to school. They enjoy meeting new people and because the school has such a diverse population, we have the privelege of learning about other cultures and traditions based on first hand experience. I love it!
