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!

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
