My daughter has been here since Kindergarten and is going into the 4th grade for the 2014/2015 school year. I have definitely noticed that she is more advanced than other kids her age, and also kids in higher grade levels than she is in. The academics of this school far exceed great. However, it doesn't change for me that I don't feel the parents have any voice. The location is inconvenient, the class sizes are large, no sports/extracurricular activities, somewhat outrageously-sized homework packets, and not all staff are exactly "professional." Do wish the school went to the 8th grade, I am very uncomfortable with mixing 7th/8th graders with High-schoolers. Lastly, if you ever intend on being able to see your child perform during a Christmas show, arrive at least 2 hours early. The seating is absolutely ridiculous. They have had years to figure out a better way of doing this, but never have enough room to accomodate even half of the people that show up :-(

TCP is a school of excellent. My son is in first grade and his reading and math skills are very good. He is on a whole different level than friends and family members who are in a higher grade in the Cincinnati public school. He is also very good in French.

My son has been at TCP for 5 years and I love it. He's more advanced than his friends in private and public schools. My cousin is a teacher in public schools and said keep him at TCP because if I put him in public school he would have to go to 6th grade. My son is going into the 4th this year with the same teacher he had last year. I can say the last 4 years he's been in small classes with caring, attentive teachers who would call me anytime if they had problems or concerns. The kids there are so polite, honest and respectful. The only thing I would suggest is like all parents do is that she move. That way she could go up to maybe the 8th and have more kids there. But I know she won't move. Another thing I would suggest is after school activities and PTA. I think all schools public an charter should have a PTA. His homework is challenging but not too hard. They go on a lot of field trips. Last year he went to the Children's Theater and had to dress up. Which I thought was great exposure for the kids. If you need a good school TCP is it.

This school is not what it use to be 2-3 years ago. It use to be very family oriented and teachers really worked with your kids if they were having problems.I have seen a lot of bullying and student profiling here in the last 2 years.They are good academically but they primarily focus on math and reading. Once winter sets in, your child has no recess time to unwind and release some energy so kids tend to get into more trouble between October and March.They have to eat in a small cafeteria and are expected to sit and be still and they get in trouble in they are talking to loud or running around on their lunch break. What 6,7,8,9 or 10 year old do you know that can keep still like that. There is no nurse on staff, they have no link to any counselor or psychologist that can come in when there may be a need for a student and their is no support for the students. I was very excited about this school but it has changed. Several of their great teachers are leaving because it is becoming dysfunctional and they have no support. I'm removing my son for next school year. I would not recommend this school unless you have a child that is very quiet and can sit still for 8 hours straight.

My children came from a Montessori school that I was not very happy with. Now they are learning so much more and are very happy in school since attending TCP. The staff are compassionate, caring, professional, and do not consider your child to be just a number like in the public school system. I can't say enough about this school, and it's such a comfort to know that my children are happy and learning well above what their peers are. I wish all schools were like this, because all children deserve to be treated like the gems that they are. Mrs. French is above the norm when it comes to Principals, and when the children are excited and happy to see and greet her, and vice versa, it says it all. Thank you T.C.P., for all that you do!

My daughter is in her second year of preschool here (turns 5 next year). I am a very picky parent and yet I'm very impressed with the staff's knowledge, their ability to keep the kids on track, and the nurturing environment they have created for these very precious young minds. I have watched my 4 year old flourish here. She can read, do simple math, and she is even learning social studies. She is also picking up vital social skills as well. Thank you, T.C.P.

My daughter was failing horribly in Cincy Public schools. All that changed when I sent her to TCP in the 3rd grade. She went from C, D, and F's to making the A/B Honor Roll 3 times this year in the 6th grade. I wish I'd found this wonderful place while she was a pre-schooler-she and I would have not struggled like we did. Bless you, TcP and Mrs. French. My child will graduate in 3 weeks from TCP's 6th grade, and I won't ever find another school like this for her. I am saddened that she has to move on, but so very proud of her accomplishments at TCP.

My daughter has atteneded TCP World Academy since Preschool. She has learned soo much. She has learned far more than what students her age are learning in public school. She is in the first grade now, she can do division, multiplication, read stories and point out the main ideas. I am very impressed. The teachers are involved and contact me as soon as there are problems. I love this school

I am soo grateful for this school, my child is enrolled in kindergarten and is learning to read, addition and subtraction! I sent her to our neighborhood Montessori school and I was infuriated that the only thing she was learning were bad habits. My child was not being challenged at all the teacher was too busy diciplining the children to teach..I pulled her out after 4weeks of no communication with the staff and enrolled her at TCP World Academy and I have not regretted it! She is thriving they hold the children and the parents accountable for the work that is due! Bravo! we love it!

My son is in his third year at T.C.P. Staff knows him by name. That'n not even the part that impressed me. When he started having a issue in any subject area the staff always would notify me stat! They do this because they care and love where they work. My daughter attends private and has for 9 years. I wish T.C.P. was founded before I made that decision. She is now too old to attend there. Why pay for what you can get for FREE!

This school has been a stepping stone on my son education. It takes a village to raise a child and the involment of all staff it is very noticable; academics and discipline are transforming my child into an overall control and concious student. Today my son wants to go school, his nightmares are gone. The teachers attitude and desire to be there are truthfull and caring. The Principal's love for the education of our kids is a blessing. TCP it is helping my son a great deal, because they really care for his needs and his future. We are glad we found a school that have open arms to the need of our community. I thank everybody for the job that you do.
