I have one child in TES and am extremely excited about not only the teachers involvement but also the involvement of the community in the local school system.

I disagree that there are no consequences for children who misbehave at Trenton Elem. school. The teachers and the principal all go out of their way to make the children feel safe and loved in their environment. They are always willing to find ways to solve any problem that arises. My children love school and it is because the adults in their building treat them very well. They have fun and learn! It is a great educational facility!

There has been a lot of very inappropriate things happen at this school and there seems to be no consequences. It is a scary thought for me to have to send my child here.
