the school has forgotten to put my child on the school bus several times. There is some miscommunication or disorganization.

It seems the schools focus is on classifying as many children with learning disabilities as possible. The teachers bullied me and gave ultimatium to signed forms to agree for testing to classify my child with a learning disabilities or they would fail him out of the school. They never explain why they felt this is necessay just that my child just isn't getting it. The teachers keep talking in circles but cant make it clear to me what is the issue. When I suggested to get my own private evaluation done they tried to discourage it. They claim I'm not allowed to get my own private evaluation because they are doing the evaluation. None of it makes sense and its sad they are putting my child through this circus.

Well... To begin with it is and amazing school for students academically challenged, as well as just regular children ready to learn. It appreciates students abilities towards learning and making new discoveries every day. Tinc Road to me is like a second home and to others as well. Teaching is not a skill, it is a chance to interact with your students and let their imagination run wild. We feel as if our teachers are family to us, family laugh together, play together, and discover things out of this world together. Tinc Road Elementary is a community made up of students and families working together one step at a time to change students points of view to learning, having fun, and making more and more friends to connect and share ideas with.

Tinc Road School earned "Top 10 Elementary School 2010-2011". As a parent of a daughter who attends Tinc Road (and one who has moved on to the middle school) I am very proud of our school's achievements. The teachers, principal and all of the PTO and volunteers truly has made our childrens' school exceptional. Tinc Road School made sure that my daughters achieved their own individual successes and be the best they can be. Tinc Road School is truly exceptional and it shows when you walk through the doors. Everyone there is focused on learning. Tinc Road School is great.

My children have been at Tinc since 2004. It is an EXCELLENT school with top teachers and staff. Dr Fair (principal) is terrific with the kids and runs a tight ship to ensure the best education for all of the students. My children LOVE to go to school each day, which my husband and I are thrilled about. My older child is heading to middle school and cried on her last day at Tinc in June. The PTO is very involved and there are programs and activities for the students and families throughout the year. We couldn't be happier.

My son is currently in 3rd grade and has been going to Tinc ever since Kindergarten. He has always been very pleased with all the teachers he's had and had never complained. I even volunteered for Centers for his Kindergarten class and got to see the teaching first hand. All the teachers he's had so far have been great and Dr. Fair (the principal) is always out and about and very involved with everything that is going on with the school. My son is also in speech classes and the whole process involved with that have been lovely and smooth and Mrs. Crotts (the speech therapist) has been wonderful for my son. Thanks to all the hard work the staff of Tinc do to make our children's education a great experience!

My daughter is now in second grade and has been attending Tinc since kindergarten. We love the teachers so much they become like family!! My daughter started reading in kindergarten and we owe it all to Tinc!! She is excited about school, loves her teachers, and has great friends! If I had to criticize one thing it would be the unhealthy school lunches. Needless to say she brings her lunch!! We are big fans and are looking foward to our son to attend Tinc in a few years!!

Great public school with low teacher to student ratios. The teachers show they care about each student and it shows in the progress they make throughout the year.

My son is a first grader here and I have to say I am not impressed with the dicipline policy. The children are merely slapped on the wrist for fighting. Schools should have a zero tolorence policy for bullies and this school does not. I am not impressed with the academics either. The classroom should incorporate more hands on experiences, after all children learn best this way. My son often comes home not recalling what was taught that day. This is a first for him since he is a very bright child. I hope that he has a better experience in second grade!
