New school building in 2000. Start of the art with computers in every classroom. We had 2 kids at TES. Both special needs. One is gifted but "payed attention only about 10% of the time" and the other payed attention but never did any work. The school placed teams with my kids who met them where they were academically and encouraged them by focusing on weak areas and rewarding competent areas and honest efforts. Through this process I got to know the staff and administrators very well and always felt like whatever the situation was with my kids (and there were some big ones) the school had the situation well in hand. The principal is a strong leader and you can see the love the teachers have for the kids. They are a very traditional school with strict dress code (no uniforms), behavior, and expectations. They have a school wide meeting every morning with teachers and students that parents are welcome to attend. In this meeting they say the pledge of allegiance, and sing an encouraging song of the day that reinforces the school H.E.A.R.T skills of Honor, Empathy, Accountability, Respect, Teamwork. They have a VERY active PTA and the school is very community focused.
My daughter just graduated K-garten, what a wonderful school! The quality of content the teacher covered was wonderful! There is plenty of opportunity to become involved with the school as a parent, as well as for your child to become involved. One item this school takes pride in are the reading programs available to each and every student. My daughter and I enjoyed reading together throughout this last year and watching her 'car' travel further and further down the 'reading road.' I would reccomend this school to any and all! Hope to see you there!
