I hve watched this school go from exceptional to average. I hve 3 scholars in Tindley schools. I love the level of academic rigor, love that they teach kids personal accountability, very disappointed in teacher attrition. "Do not teach/wrk at Tindley" is the talk around town. "You will get fired in 3 wks" is the running joke! Teachers are not always dismissed due to underperformance. It's Tindley's way or the highway regardless of your ability to provide good academic instruction. It's the NORM for scholars to have 3-4 different teachers per year in more than one subject. 85-90% of the teachers are 1st yr TFA'ers who are there to fulfill their contract. However after a grueling indoctrination many realize they want out! This has lead to the decline of academic instruction. Yet the level of rigor and expectation is still high. This means a lot of frustrated kids who are not performing because they haven't been taught. Admin solution scholars are made to stay at school until 5pm then 7pm and mandatory Saturday & Sunday school. I have one graduating and one entering as a freshman. Not sure if we are staying. Quality teachers are the backbone of any school without them...

Go the other way. There are so many other college prep school, that not only care about the success and reputation of their school but also about our youth. Young men everyday are subjected overbearing administrators, who have proven time and time again to care more about their school's reputation than helping to turn around young men and women who may need time to adjust to an accelerated culture, connection with a mentor and/or tutoring. Tindley is quick to find a way to get your child out and will leave you desperate and hopeless. Don't be discouraged and if your child has even the mildest behavior problems run as far as you can from this school. As a parent, there's no avenue to connect unless you belong to what seems like a "clique" or group of families that all know one another. Those are also the families who are helped to succeed if added help and support are needed. I am unsure how this school has a 9 rating, when very few educators in the community respect its administrators. The teachers are great, but get them alone and even they don't agree with the fa ade Tindley projects.

I am a 2009 graduate of Tindley and after seeing reviews of my Alma Mater was intrigued to write a review. Tindley is and was the best decision that I could have made at the age of 13. It not only helped me with my educational goals but also helped with becoming a productive citizen. I graduated with honors and attended an excellent university, where I graduated ON TIME. Yes, Tindley is hard and challenges the minds of its students, but that's what the name says accelerated.Sure Tindley may not be top in the city for athletics, but from its opening in 2004 I can say the school has come a pretty far way. To see parents complain about this and that is mind boggling, you knew what it was when you decided to enroll your child. Did you really expect us to be #1 in eeverything. The focus is clear and that is education. For teachers that have complained I believe the mission of the school speaks for itself. This is not a school you arrive while the students are arriving and leave when they leave. This is a school where you are supposed to care about the students academically, willing to help in any way you can. Even if that means coming early and leaving late. Tindley is a great school!

Tindley Renaissance is unstable with a VERY high turnover rate for teachers. Expect your child to be suspended for minor infractions. Expect the teachers and staff not to care about anything or anyone other than Tindley.

Tindley has become very unfocused within the last two years and taking my child out of this abusive unstable environment was the best thing we could have ever done. My niece is in their new elementary school and has had 4 teachers since the August. The Principal is a former Music Teacher with no experience as a principal and suspended 4/5 year olds for falling to sleep...Really???

Pulling our child from Tindley was the best decision my husband and I could have ever made. If you want your child to have the best overall high school experience, DO NOT send them to Tindley. While I appreciate the accelerated curriculum, they have failed to realize that "college bound" students have more than just good grades and nice test scores. They are well rounded individuals! Colleges look at whether or not you have extra curricular activities, what commities you may have been involved with, community service etc. Tindleys rigirous schedule and ridiculous expectations don't even allow the kids to have these opportunites! My final thoughts, if you want your child to have a quality education, challenging curriculum AND the opportunity to express themselves through creative arts, sports and other extra curricular activities, try Herron High School. They have a great curriculum, PLENTY of extra activities and clubs, and are ranked in the top 5% of high schools in the USA! They also have the warm, family-friendly environment that Tindley DESPEREATE LACKS!! My child is now at Herron and has never been happier....doing well in school WITHOUT the stress.

This review is mainly for teachers: I taught at Tindley Prep and Tindley Accelerated this past Spring 2013 semester, and I knew in March that I didn't want to return to the school in the fall. I turned in my letter of resignation shortly before the semester ended. The mission of Tindley looks good on paper, but the reality of school culture is another story. The demands of its teachers (9-10 hour workdays minimum, three weeks of all-day summer "professional development," giving up evenings & weekends for students, etc.) are like no other school I've seen. The rigorous expectations leave teachers feeling burnt out, frustrated, and unappreciated. At Tindley Prep, discipline was inconsistent and students who were caught with drug paraphernalia or defacing school property were allowed back to the school after a few weeks. The bottom line is that the turnover rate of teachers at Tindley is incredibly high; it's a miracle if a teacher stays more than a year or two.

This school is very focused on education and discipline, and those two qualities are what attracted me to enroll my daughter here for 6th grade... However, this school is very inconvenient for working parents (who work day shift jobs). Most of the time the students stay in school until 5pm, and school is dismissed every Friday @ 12pm. This is a burden for working parents to try and find someone to pick their child up from school! Also, the summer school hours are HORRIBLE!!! I was told my daughter had to attend mandatory summer school for Math from 11:35am-2:35pm daily!? Those are prime hours that parents are at work... I would get fired from my job just from trying to get her to/from school! I would not reccomend this school for working parents that have a 9-5 job. Administration could care less about parents that have "real" jobs.

It's been a bumpy ride at Tindley. On one hand I like the focus on academic achievement, but I question whether there is the right combination of teachers and administrators to pull it off. I don't think they are good at classroom management and too much emphasis is put on putting children out rather that helping students improve. For the sake of all of those who have entrusted their children to Tindley, I hope they get this figured out, soon.

My student has attended Tindley since 6th grade and he will be a junior this summer. I am very confused by the number of complaints from teachers from within this school and caution parents from allowing these views to effect their decision. One thing I have learned is that teacher who do not perform at the high standards that Tindley expects of its teachers are asked to leave. I wonder if the listed complaints are from a teacher who was asked to leave. Tindley is not for everyone. It is a strong academic school that takes no-excuses related to behavior. My son has been sent to the office and suspended once over trival things that at many other schools would not have even resulted in a second look from a teacher. But this is what I love about this school. Teachers are able to focus on teaching because of fewer distractions. Students are enrolled in Honors classes across the board; most colleges look at AP and Honors classes as the same thing. Students who are not prepared are retained until they can succeed at the level, isn;t that what schools are supposed to do? If you expect your child to be passed on regardless of ability, take them somewhere else.

I am a graduate of Tindley and I give this school 5 stars. Not only did I graduate with honors I am about to graduate from one of the top school in the state of Indiana. For a parent who doesn't like Tindley I think they're either controlled by their child are complacent with mediocricy coming from him or her. Tindley is very strict but once you leave you see why. People do not play in the real world and the strictness does get students ready for college believe it or not. For the teachers who complain about the working hours, I can say that you are told this before hand. Many teachers come just to get a pay check and not actually work and those teachers have to go. Tindley is a great school and I encourage everyone to go.


Posted April 28, 2013

I am a current student at Tindley. First of all, I'm rather disappointed to see all of the negativity being directed towards my school. Yes, the teachers have to work much harder than usual. But they signed up for the job. Yes, students get suspended a lot. But it is their choice whether they get suspended. I have gone to TIndley for all my high school years (i am a junior now) and I have not been suspended once. It is all up to the student to control their own path. Don't blame it on the school. Despite some drawbacks, It all comes down to the point that Tindley has broken major barriers and will continue to that Tindley is a great school that has been recognized from many including Mayor Ballard for its educational innovation. Tindley gets the job done.


Posted April 21, 2013

I am a former student and leaving Tindley was the best choice of my life so far. Tindley is excellent when it comes to their academic scores, but if it is looked at closely, they force it to be as such. Everyone is placed at the same level regardless of whether they are ready for or are pass that level. Those that are under are either brought up to the level or held back for an additional year. Those that are passed it are forced to sit and be bored while their intelligence and ability is stinted and unchallenged. Its good that they have honors classes, but their are no AP classes. There are no opportunity to take higher classes or to go over a certain amount of credit either. I might be over exaggerrating slightly, but this is based on my own experience.


Posted April 8, 2013

Don't be fooled by false grades that are derived from worksheet completion.My 6th grade level runs on worksheets. There's only a math textbook for students and the teacher edition; the completion of worksheets does not equal a good education nor mastery of any particular skills. Most of our subject areas use worksheets-our science material came from a book that a student accidently left at one of our teacher's homes.That does not give the kids all the skills that other students have been given for their next future level of academics.Most parents do not have the professional training to know that something is wrong w/ steady doses of worksheets.If a student is already intelligent, then they will do well at any school.We only have professional development on paper so most of our Friday afternoon meetings have been a sham.I have never worked at a school that didn't conduct real professional developments for its staff. I constantly have literal stacks of papers to grade for each subject b/c of the paper accumulation. I get there & it's dark outside and it's close to dark or sometimes dark outside when I leave.Ridiculous! The mayors charter school office needs 2make SURPRISE visits.

I am furthering the post on "I'm exhausted just from this post". I agree with everything they have said. I want to add that the teachers have to work 10 hours a day and that is not if they want. You will be at the school from 7:30AM - 5:30PM everyday minimum because that is the working day (school doesn't let out until 5PM). It is also correct that they expect you to put in 1 hour a week extra in detention as well as weekend hours. If you are planning on taking a job here, be aware you will work a minimum of 50 hours a week, so factor that in to the salary you ask for. I agree that you will have no outside life. If you are married or have a significant other, be ready to possible lose them because you will have absolutely not time for them. In short, if you have any other option take it.

I m exhausted just from this post, so here comes the fine print, really fast like at the end of the car commercials when they want you to miss a details so they can say they told you so: work week is Monday thru Friday but if you want to keep your job for more than a few weeks you will host a student workshop for 4 hours on Saturday and Sunday as well. If someone is caught talking in your class you are to send them to the office with a referral and then later explain to the parent why their child is suspended for talking. You are to host detention one day a week, where you spend the time checking to see which kids are there, verifying if they completed their homework, and making phone calls if they missed. If you value your job you are not to have a life outside of school. You are not to go to bed each night miserable and hating your very existence.

I am a parent of this school and i have worked with this school for years(from 2007 to 2011) but I feel like Tindley isnt the best school for students expecially at the highschool level. The highschool experience for me and my student was very unpleasant they require alot of unnecessary money time and emotions just for my child who wanted to get the education and play sports. He use attend to Warren Central High School and was a star on their basketball and track team. He had high honors and was accepted to the University of Notre Dame and Alabama. He enjoyed High School and now he will be at Alabama University on a sports scholarship as well as an academic scholarship. If you want the best education for your student as well as a great experience for expecially high school, Try Warren Central like me or other township schools but, I believe from experience that Tindley is not the best choice financially, socially, emotionally, academicly, athleticly. Its the students education not yours so do not force your child to be a police officer if he/she wants to be a doctor. Let them choose where they want to take their life.

I am a little surprised that this school is not ranked as the absolutely best secondary school for all of Indiana. Tindley is the only secondary school in the state to be awarded the National Blue Ribbon from the US Department of Education. It is a four star school as rated by the Indiana Department of Education. It is strict but how can that be bad? Places that are not strict are promoting students that have not mastered grade level content, and at Tindley, students know their stuff. If someone does not follow the rules, they are hurting the learning of not just themselves, but everyone in thier classroom. That is probably why they are put out. GREAT SCHOOL!


Posted July 30, 2010

I have been familiar with the outstanding work being done at Tindley for 5 years. During that time, the school has grown in numbers and in excellence. Whenever I walk the halls, I see students who treat me with respect. The teachers are dedicated and work there out of love for kids and learning. I have to give credit to the parents as well who are the invaluable link in the whole process of student learning. So glad this school exists as an alternative to the traditional public education.

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.
