My son attended Tunbridge from the very beginning. He was apart of the first graduating kindergarten class. His progress throughout the years at Tunbridge has become one the most frustrating and disappointing journeys for my family and child. I loved the families, activities, and loved that they knew my son by name, but providing consistency, resources and experienced teachers was a problem. The foundation that my son received in kindergarten was taught by a unexperienced teacher. Knowing sight words was great, but the phonics and sounds weren't addressed. Brought problems in 1st grade as a reader. Same in math, Money and telling time, never introduced until late 2nd grade. I'll asked for two years for additional resources such as tutoring, never able to provide, expect for one year when a unexperienced teacher offered and the whole class attended. How can a unexperienced teacher be expected to complete such task with no assistance. Assistance available was to request for a IEP. So in other words, no foundation, and now he's behind and only way of providing help is to label him as a special needs child. Absolutely NOT! I'm sorry I should have left long ago!

This school is also a nightmare for responsible parents. Expect to have your character attacked if you question your child's education at this school. Better yet get them into a school that doesn't think a great school rating of 6 is a good as it gets. Its funny how most of the reviews that were written in April sound like the same person wrote them.

Hello parents,teachers, and staff I am the mother of a current TPCS enrollee. My 5th grader has excelled in every subject since enrollment. I love the school's curriculum, daily schedule, school events, trips, and current staff. I wouldn't have my middle sschooler attend any other BCPS.

This schools is wonderful...a strong principal, great teacher-leaders, and involved parents. The children are at the center of the school and its curriculum. The board and non-profit leadership also provide steady governance and direction for the school.

I have a child that has been a student at Tunbridge for the past 3 years. The teachers really care about the students. Some of them give of their time for free with afterschool clubs and activities. I enjoy the fact that they promote healthy living and a caring environment. I like the fact that they promote not just taking care of ones self but others as well. The PTO is very active and involved in the school.

I love TUNBRIDGE! My son is a 4th grade student and he loves his learning environment. Tunbridge challenge the kids mentally and physically while promoting a healthy lifestyle. The parents, staff, and student involvement is phenomenal. Safety is a big factor at Tunbridge and is enforced daily, the drop off and pick up routine is a wonderful policy at Tunbridge. Communication plays a major part and the teachers and staff are very efficient with that. Everyone is friendly, the school is very welcoming!! I'm very fortunate to have my son and now my daughter (enrolled for fall pre-k) apart of such a structured and well-maintained learning environment. Most importantly, my son receives a valuable education at Tunbridge and all resources all available for your child to reach their fullest potential. Tunbridge develops mind, body, and spirit which ultimately empowers your child to operate at their fullest potential. Tunbridge Public Charter school is something to know about!!

I love this school. My daughter attended two different Christian based private schools which both closed down. We were very reluctant to seek out a public school and stumbled across Tunbridge..... this public charter school really cares about its students and we all love the family atmosphere. The education services are great and both my children (6th and Pre-K) love the arts programs. I will certainly recommend this school to all parents in the Baltimore City.

Tunbridge is a fantastic school and was a great transition from our son attending a Christian Private school. It's such a family atmosphere and he loves it there. The academics are top notch, the PTO is great, the aftercare program is outstanding and the PAX's values really make a difference. Our daughter will be attending Pre-K in the fall. It's a great place to be for ALL associated.

My son has had a great experience this year in kindergarten with Ms. Brock and Ms. Eams. I know that he is covering the basics and is loved and respected. They also have a lot of great specials such as drama, dancing and music. All of the teachers seem enthusiastic about being there and they seem to really care about the students.

Tunbridge Public Charter School is the BEST charter school in the City of Baltimore. My child has been going to this school since the 3rd grade. They help you through the adjustments and give you helpful suggestions to help your child succeed. My favorite teacher is Ms. Stallings. She really does care about her students. Whenever you have a question, she is there to help. If you're looking for a school that will help your child succeed and accept them as they are, Tubridge Public Charter School is the best decision to help you and your child have a successful journey!

Tunbridge Public Charter School is full of children who love to learn! This is a school that teaches kids to be healthy people.- in all senses of the word. Health at Tunbridge means taking care of yourself, taking care of others, and taking care of your space. When you walk in, you are welcomed by caring teachers and staff - and you're very likely to run into a parent volunteering, too!

This school is only a nightmare for parents who want teachers to raise their children and don't take responsibilities for the actions of their children! Please explain why it is nightmare because I will write again that the school is AWESOME! My child is in Mrs. Hazel's class and she is a awesome, fair and loving teacher. My child has been at Tunbridge since it opened and is doing extremely well. She even loves math because they have such a great math teacher. Maybe parents that have problems should evaluate themselves , their own lives and their own school histories and try to problem solve at home and not just school! Every experience is what you make it. There are solutions at TPCS.

As a parent of a kindergarten student, I have been exceptionally pleased with the education my son has received over the past 2 years. He is challenged, supported, and growing in all areas; physically, intellectually, and socially. We feel incredibly fortunate to have found this school and are looking forward to many more years of our son, and his little brother, attending Tunbridge! It is a wonderful, welcoming, family-oriented environment.

Tunbridge Public Charter School is a fantastic school! They do a wonderful job of creating a positive school environment that promotes respect of self and others. The students receive a quality education and there is open communication with parents. Students are encouraged to participate in developing their own goals and are supported towards mastery. I really could go on and on... Class sizes are very manageable (22 students). Every adult in the building knows the students and addresses them by name. Most of the teachers use strategies from "responsive classrooms" and there is consistency throughout the school with regards to positive behavior support. Yay Tunbridge!!!

Tunbridge does a wonderful job of creating an engaging curriculum for the student and providing parents opportunities to be involved and make a contribution. The environment is newly renovated with ample room for children to move and grow. Although relatively new, the school is establishing a community of parents, teachers and young people focused on education.

Tunbridge is a good school that has to decide whether it wants to be great for Baltimore City or great compared to any school. Many of the teachers are better than some of the surrounding private schools where my husband and I have visited. On the other hand, the curriculum is fair and lacks some of the in depth learning in social studies, science and the arts that I would expect from a great school.

I am a parent of a child entering first grade at Tunbridge. Kindergarten was a great experience at Tunbridge! The teacher was open and commiunicated regularly with parents via email and phone contact when necessary. Staff seem to be very invested in the children and administration was supportive. There were many opportunities for parent involvement. The school staff manage the children calmly and it is a very peaceful school community. Children are taught to take care of themselves, their peers, and their school. Social, emotional, and physical health are emphasized throughout the curriculum.
