These reviews are for the old school TCS that was located at this address and are not current reviews for Life Source . The new school and daycare have only been established since 2012 and have glowing reviews.

My children and I love this school! We tried the public school, and another private school before attending TCS. My children went from dreading school to loving it! The class sizes are small, and we feel like we're part of a family there. The teachers are kindhearted and love what they do!

It is really so sad that inmature people must put a school down. This year has been a year of change and transition for our school. This school is a very loving and caring school my children attends this school and I have NEVER had problems with them. WHen something needs to be handled it is handled . The staff is awesome.

This school doctrinal structure has seen better days. Unfortunately, some of their teachers don't even have a real relationship with Christ, which means that anything can leave their mouth, and fall on the innocent ears of the children. Worst of all, the school management tends to be passive when teachers misbehave, Parents beware. We think children can tell that something is not of God, but the wrong teacher will lead your child astray. Be vigilant. God bless you.

I have been at this school for 8 years. The quality of the education has fallen in the past year. It's sad to see a school you love become a school you despise because of administration changes and poor choices in leadership. One teacher is permitted to show partiality to one class but not to another. This is the exception and not the rule but this one teacher has ruined middle school and students are blamed for his lack of discipline by the administration. I wish I could give one star but I can't.

This school is terrible. The prinicpal will suspend someone for not doing homework but nasty words can spew out and it's okay.

The administration is non-supportive and unprofessional. Attempts to discipline are fruitless as the principal has no clue how to handle conflict.

There is no authority in this schiool and there is also no dicipline, as a result of the lack of dicipline and authority students are blamed for the lack of dicipline. As a result some of the children just run wild and other kids are blamed for it.

Lack of organization; unprofessional office staff and administrators; no clue how to deal with problem behaviors-blame students for lack of discipline.

I have 2 children here (4th & 8th grades)& they both love it. Along with the added Spanish,gym,art,music & computer programs there has also been the addition of a full middle school program this year. There is also a great ethnic diversity in students and staff. TCS provides a very warm and yet professional environment. Class size remains small even though student growth is now over 110.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
