"T! R!" (as its known to those of us who love it.......) is an excellent school for 3 reasons: 1. A confident, enthusiastic, and communicative Principal who sets the tone for the school, by his leadership. 2. A caring and experienced teaching and non-teaching staff who clearly work together as a team, for the benefit of the students. 3. A teaching staff that has obviously chosen TR as their school of choice. This is reflected in their hard work and dedication. I am a parent of a child at the school; I am also a professional educator with 30 years' experience in the classroom. Keep up the great work!

My grandson just finished his second year at TR - first for pre-school and now kindergarten. He had Ms. Chwojdak as his teacher - what a great experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has children entering kindergarten. He is progressing into a fine young man thanks to the leadership given at TR.

My son has just finished at TR and will be going onto Woodrow Wilson. His experience has been positive and above and beyond anything I could have expected. He was my first in school. My daughter will be starting kindergarten in Sept and I'm looking forward to more fantastic things to come. The teachers are always helpful and wonderful with the children. Thumbs up to Mr. Slaiman for the terrific job he does as principal.

I have 2 kids in TR and both are doing great. The teachers are wonderful. They are good with the kids and encourage parental involvement in and outside of the classroom. The school also have events such as Glenn Colton concerts and Sports nights where the kids get to do sports with their parents.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
