I am thrilled with the education my children are receiving at the Tiller School. We have incredible and dedicated teachers, and parents who support those teachers by volunteering and fostering a learning environment at home. Despite the country's current focus on testing, Tiller has retained time for activities that promote the growth of the 'whole child', including musical and fine arts and time for free playground play every day. My children love attending, and I am amazed at how much they learn every day.

My child has been attending Tiller since kindergarten. He loves it! The whole family does. The teachers and staff always seem to give 110% in all they do. The small class sizes are a real plus for the children getting more one on one time with their teachers. I have always had positive experiences dealing with staff and teachers at Tiller. My only regret is that Tiller is not a K-12 school.

Tiller School goes over and beyond for its students and parents. Tiller is a safe, academically superior, and technologically-forward school. I am so proud of what my children have learned and accomplished because of Tiller's teachers and staff leading the way.

Tiller is an amazing school! We relocating to the area so my child could go to Tiller School. It was well worth it! The school is a community of teachers, students, parents, and administration. The locals also support the school in a big way! You will not be disappointed with this school.

I have sent three of my children here with plans to send a fourth when he is ready for Kindergarten. I love the small classroom sizes, the attention that each child gets not only from their own teacher but from everyone around them. The schools belief in socializing children in positive ways, not only with the children in their classroom, but also with the other children throughout the school is an amazing thing to experience. Two years after my oldest son graduated I still have children who ask me how he is doing when they see me. My only regret about Tiller is that they are no longer a offering a Middle school Program and there are no charter Middle schools in Carteret County.

This little Charter school is giving our very small and rural community hope for our children. The professionals that keep this school going are trained in experience based teaching and keep children excited and passionate while learning beyond the basics! I am thrilled to send my son to this school when he is ready and hope it can continue to sustain itself with all the state budget cuts that roll down from the state house.

As a teacher who has recently interviewed at the Tiller School, I can honestly say that I have finally found a school that centers their daily mission around the whole child. Instead of pursuing the highest possible End of Grade Test results, they focus on fostering the lifelong learner, one who is not only able to succeed academically but able to work alongside his or her peers for a common purpose. My greatest hope is that I can become a part of this school family.

I have absolutely loved sending my son to this school. The one on one attention he receives has truly propelled him into learning despite his learning delays and disabilities. The only regret I have is that we are moving out of state and won't be able to attend next year

My daughter has attended the Tiller School grades 1-7. This school has been a blessing for my child. At thirteen my daughter is full of self-esteem and loves her school. The one-on-one attention is extended from the entire Tiller community. Family involvement creates a special atmosphere of community where ownership of the school is shared. The focus of this school is on developing life long learners, and every child is treated with respect and encouraged to follow their dreams. The extraordinary history of Tiller academic success is achieved through creative teaching, creative learning and social responsibility. The Tiller is a second home, where children are loved and encouraged to learn and excel at everything with self-discipline and pride. They create a safe atmosphere; safe to make mistakes, safe to explore new ideas, and safe to disagree with each other. I only wish that the Tiller School went from Kindergarten through college.
