We are considering moving into the school district for Tigerville for our son who will be attending 1st grade, but I must say that it makes me a bit suspicious of the reviews when almost all of them were written on the same day - May 2nd, 2010. It smacks of a teacher or group of staff members all getting together to post a "batch" of reviews - almost all of them are one or two lines, lacking in any real detail or specifics, and are all anonymous "Submitted by a parent." Very suspicious and of NO use as a true review for potential parents doing their research and trying to honestly compare schools. Sad, because parents really need a source of reliable info. Anyone else out there know other forums/websites that are honest and unbiased?

My child has always had issues attending school since K5. We switched to Tigerville in 3rd grade and all issues are gone. The Love and Logic approach that each member applies has changed our child. Tigerville has a special way of making each child feel important. Thanks Tigerville for caring!

I have been fortunate that when visiting my grandsons in Travelers Rest I get to pick them up from Tigerville El. During my visits I am continually amazed at the up beat disposition of the staff and teachers and how it is mirrored in the students. What a positive learning environment. As incredibly impressed I am with Tigerville El. I am dumbfounded by the fact that funding for education and particularly science, a national priority(?) is always in jeopardy. Thank God for the likes of Care2. I thank them for the opportunity to save education programs. Go Tigerville!!!!!!!!.

Tigerville has been the best School in the world!!!! I went there & now my children have gone there. I still have one there & she loves it there. She is always eager to go to School to see what she will learn each day. She especially loves going to the Science lab where Mrs. Deb Turner is the Teacher. Mrs. Turner is one of many of the faculty & staff there that goes above & beyond the call of duty to teach these precious young minds. You will always see smiles on every child's face when you go there. They all have this gleam in there eyes with excitement just at the chance to learn something new. They absolutely love the hands on attention they receive from the Teachers. I have walked into many a School doorway, but have never felt as welcome as I feel when I walk into Tigerville Elementary's doors. I know my children are being well taken care of & well taught. They always welcome all families to come in to volunteer or just to observe. Nothing to hide, just loving & educating children going on there. Thank you Tigerville for all the hard work & dedication you put forth everyday.

Tigerville Elementary is a small, rural, loving school. I have never come across a staff that sincerely love their jobs. There is not a teacher that doesn't enjoy coming to class and working with the students on a daily basis. The faculty are like a small community. When someone is down, either staff members or school families, they join together to pick them up. They never think twice to offer assistance, both physical and finacial, to any situation. The principal believes in the importance of what is best for each and every student under her care. She is there for those children and nothing else, even when this goes against the grain of the district or the parent. I value all of the Tigerville faculty and staff. The district has proposed in their necessary budget cuts to eliminate the Science Lab Instructors. Our science teacher is only part time (2 days per week), yet her insight and love of science is truly inspriring to the students she touches. The families and staff are fighting to find a way to keep her position at the school. This is just one more reason to see that Tigerville Elementary is a top school of education.

It places a serious focus on improving education and recognizes the high IQ children and instead of calling it ADHD they are teaching those children to better channel all the information coming at them at once and not telling them something is wrong with them while placing them on the drug ritalin which is in the addictive category with heroine and cocaine. I'm very proud of this school and it must continue!

Tigerville is one of those 'one of a kind' environments where kids love going, parents love that their kids go there, and educators love kids and teaching. Educators at Tigerville give 150% to their students and allow them to learn in unique, cooperative, environments which are centered around each individual child's learning style. Tigerville and the educators who work there are a gift to this community. Their enthusiasm for kids and learning should be bottled up and sold.

There are not enough words in the English dictonary that could explain how great Tigerville school is. If you take teachers away that will only further decrease our numbers on education in SC. I thought that all we wanted to do was to further educate our student and if you take staff away that not educating our students, that's just making them fall behind.

Tigerville Elementary School is one of the most family oriented School I have ever encountered. They welcome all children & their families with open hearts & minds. I have always been please with the way the faculty & staff have taken care of & taught all 4 of my children. The baby of my 4 children is still their. Both my younger children had trouble learning & the faulty & staff moved heaven & earth to ensure that they have the best education possible. For that they have flourished. I have served both on the SIC & the PTA for the school & volunteered countless hours with open arms. I feel that we have the best Principal, faculty & staff in Greenville County. I am so greatful to them for all that they do for our children & our communities children.
