While most of the staff is very nice, they just can't distract you from the pitiful state that the school is in. Walking through the school, it feels as if TA is a few inspections away from being deemed unsafe for the students. The tuition is too costly for the 'education' that the students are actually getting. If you have financial issues, this is the place not go to. Of course you'll be told that money won't be an issue, but what they don't tell you is that students cannot take final tests if parents don't pay the tuition. So what the school is telling the students is that in order for you to pass a class you have to study (which is reasonable) and you have to be able to afford the quarter's tuition.
Takoma Academy has been a great, and wonderful experience for both my daughters. The parents association staff scheduled many meetings for parents to be involved with their sons/daughters scholastic life. Takoma Academy encourages many students to participate in varities of activities which are helpful in learning and having a fun time doing it. There are choices of classes students would like to take, there are also honor classes for those whom would like to expand there horizons. My duaghters had a very educational time including a time of centering God in their lives.
