We have a daughter in first grade at Towne acres, the staff and teachers have been very helpful and friendly thus far. My daughter started here in Kindergarden (wonderful experience) and has made leaps & bounds in her math & reading skills. We have been very impressed with the time and energy the teachers have invested in her. I can only hope my daughter never ever has to experience being bullied from a TEACHER (as mentioned by another parent) that would be inexcusable!!
There is a 4th grade math teacher at this school that is a BULLY and throws stuffed animals at the students and hits them in the head with pool noodles. She also makes the children stand on chairs in front of the class to humiliate them and embarrass them. She puts stickers on the children's noses when they give a wrong answer in class and forces them to wear it all day in order demean them. Not only is her behavior unprofessional but she also says things to the children that should never be said to them! She told the class that she cries to her husband every night asking him to get a job so that she didn't have to come in and deal with them or teach them anymore! This teacher has in a few short months completely crushed my daughters self confidence and caused her to break down on a daily basis and to worry herself sick on a daily basis! I would never recommend to anyone that they send their child to this school! We tried to discuss the issues with the principal and the teacher however no one would admit fault or try to help the situation they instead said that my daughter needs to learn to deal with people like that and are trying to force her into therapy!
This school has the potential to be a good school . How ever as in some of the other commits of others I agree there is bully teachers at this school. They are very unprofessional and have no ideal how to deal with children or even what it takes to teach them. If this issue is resolved the children and parents could rest at ease knowing they are being treated right at school so they can concentrate on their work instead of making Their self sick from worry about being bullied and yelled at by a teacher. Very unsatisfied
As a real estate agent living in the Town Acres Elementary area, I hear frequent comments about parent satisfaction with the school, and know there's a high degree of involvement. I've observed over the years that people who do careful research on-line before they move to this area or who have Johnson City friends giving them advice usually start out by saying "I want Towne Acres school."
I have been thoroughly impressed with Towne Acres. My child had a wonderful Kindergarten experience! The principal, staff, and faculty all make you feel like family. They provide a loving, nurturing, and strong academic environment!
Staff, Principle and Faculty are all A+. Great school for my kids to attend.
I am lucky enough to be a parent and a teacher at TA. Love it! Towne Acres is the place to be!
Towne Acres is an exceptional school not only for their quality teachers and principal, but also their dedication to the best education in the best environment possible.

My son just finished 1st grade at Towne Acres and it was a rocky year for him. We had a teacher that expected too much perfection for a class of 6 and 7 year olds. The principal is wonderful and I have no doubts about my son's safety at Towne Acres. He met other teachers and is looking forward to being in their classes as he progresses through elementary school. Overall I would reccommend this school to others but with the warning of some teachers not be very kid friendly.
My son is finishing six years at Towne Acres school. The school has gone through many chages, construction, security, teacher turnovers. We have lost many good teachers (Mrs. Redman), gained and excellent principal (Mr. Barnett), kept some great teachers (Mrs. Gilbert, Mr. Moore, Coach Whaley) but still harbor at least one bully teacher. This is typical of any school in the US but all in all, Towne Acres is an excellent school and it has been a very good six years. We will miss Towne Acres.
My daughter is just finishing 2nd grade at Towne Acres. We have had three great years. Parents are very involved at this school which makes it a great place!
My son has started Kindergarten this year and I am very impressed with Towne Acres. Everyone we have had contact with has eased mine and my son's anxieties about starting school.
