The Community School accepted my daughter cashed our transportation check and than told us she could not be bussed to the school from our house anymore, the night before the first day of school! The drive by our house which is commercially zoned and on the shoulder of their main travel route and the drive by every morning and night and refuse to stop to pick up my daughter, even though they agreed to pick her up there when she was accepted. With one family car and working parents it is impossible to transport her ourselves, but we would never have gotten her so excited to go there if they had told us they couldn't pick her up when we first applied and were accepted. The new director was incredibly insensitive and aloof, it is not a community I would ever want my daughter to be a part of.

The community school is an amazing institution which actually DOES make learning fun, the kids all learn what they need, the teachers are phenomenal, and the community is highly involved with education. TCS takes a rural community with many students who would otherwise not be community members and invites them to participate in, shape, and change their communities. The school has an organic garden and CSA, locally sourced lunches, and could not be a better example of how education can foster intelligence, creativity, happiness, and a healthy community.

This is a terrific small school with a supportive community ethos that allows the students to engage new material/skills and grow. Not only is my son happy to go to school in the morning(!) -- he has become discernibly more self-motivated and therefore is performing better in all academic areas.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
