My daughter only attended a little over a year gor kindergarten and 1st grade, but EVERYONE was great and the teachers were on the ball with trying to keep her up to speed. They also really tried to make it like a big happy family. Great environment. The staff was amazing as well as kind and helpful. Wish we could have stayed in that zone but we were renting a house that went into foreclosure and had to move suddenly... Great school though!!! :-)

I think the school's staff is amazing. they are young, energetic and keep the kids busy all day long. They are always holding events to strengthen the bond with the parents, children and the community. Not in the best neighborhood but so far it seems that the children are safe and well taken care of during school hours.

I can't tell you how many times I've seen staff at this school go above and beyond! They advocate for their students, encourage enrichment and family involvement. Teachers are great, and my kids go on about 5 field trips each year. They seem to get to know each individual student and their strengths and weak areas and are willing to be flexible with rules to accommodate individual children s' needs. I am, and have been, very impressed with TSES!

You know the TV show jingle "Everybody knows your name", well that place is TSES. As we all know public schools are whatever you make of them. In TSES they put very high effort to get parents involved within the school community, this way very few -if at all- child falls between the cracks. I am saying this as a parent, as well as a volunteer who spends great deal of time in the school. Everyone in the school puts 100% effort for the children's well-being, not just the teachers. In addition, they always have something going on to involve the whole family as well as encourage children for extracurricular activities. If TSES is your child's school district you are a lucky family :)

This is an excellent school. We've been with this school for three years now and are very pleased. The principal knows every student by name, not kidding. There is extra help available to students needing it as well as G/T and enrichment programs for those students on the advanced side. They do try to push the kids right before MSA testing but it's not over the top. State testing scores don't tell everything about a school, the staff and the communication between them and the families says a lot.
