As a former parent I see Treetops as a shining example of what a good charter school can be; I'm sad that we live too far away to make it work right now. My children received nothing less than a great education; in my youngest's new school she has already - less than three weeks into the year - gotten comments from her teachers about the quality of work she is producing (could not say that when she transferred into Treetops). Communication between parents and teachers is wonderful; Treetops has set a standard most other schools cannot or refuse to meet. The principal has an open door for any problems that cannot be resolved with the teachers (although I never had any problems like that!) and the teachers are available for conferences and tutoring when you need them. I'm hopeful we can make Treetops work again later down the road.
Treetops is a state recognized school. TAKS scores are excellent and rising every year. The teachers truly care about the students and it shows. Parents are highly encouraged to volunteer at the school. The campus gives students an excellent opportunity for outdoor learning. Serious discipline issues are minimal. You should definitely check out Treetops if you are looking for a school that really focuses on developing the individual learner.
My three children just started their fourth year at Treetops. I am very pleased with Treetops. The teachers are wonderful. Each year Treetops continues to get better and better. Due to the small class size the teachers know my children and keep me updated on their progress. The teachers respond quickly to my emails. My youngest loves the campus. They have twenty acres and she loves to be outside and observing. She loves the nature walks. The teachers are very knowledgeable in their subject areas. They are willing to work with the students and provide extra assistance (tutoring) when needed. My middle child has had great middle school teachers. One of her teachers helped organize a student council for the middle school that she was on and involved the children in some wonderful community service projects. My son s language arts/history teacher last year was awesome. She was able to relate to the students, and teach them to write proficiently. He learned so much from her classes. Academics are very important to me. My children have all done well on the TAKS testing. This last year Treetops was recognized by the TEA! I expect this year to be even better.
I went here a couple years ago tthinking it would be wonderful ,but I was dead wrong. As a former student there I know a lot of things well problems they had . Trash at the creek is the least of their problems .Can't handle discipline like public schools can. Their education they provide wasn't too great and shows on Taks scores. Kids got away with being disruptive in class . School needs money badly and definetly a new principle who only cares about the power she has over her students . No extra curricalar activities very few . Classes there are very limited . But so are the teachers ,I guess . These kids are kids who are not meant to be in regular school . This is more of a alternative school just wiothut the title . Don't go to this horrible school!! Former student
Very disappointed with Treetops. It felt like the teachers were baby-sitting than preparing the students for the future or even the next grade. Our family had such high hopes for this school. Thanks Treetops
My childern currenlty attend Treetops and even though last year was a learning curve for all three of us. I am very happy with the results to date. My oldest has always been a step ahead and marches to her own beat in many ways (not in the manners and behaiver area) in public schools she was made to conform to the beat of the other students in her classes and that caused many issues with self esteem. My youngest is not as advanced as her sister nor was she even at the same level with some of her classmates - but this last year at Treetops has help in so many ways. She entered the class behind all her fellow classmates and is now right there with them (for that I thank the teachers - we worked well together). Thank you Treetops
I personally think Treetops is the best Charter School in the whole district, the teachers are fantastic,and the Director has the greatest attitude toward advancing this school to the top of Charter school rankings, if you're looking for relif from public schools, Treetops is your #1 option.
This school is such a perfect fit for my son, whom is in his 2nd year at Treetops. He is loving the small class size & fantastic teachers. Where else could we get that one-on-one learning atsmosphere. We are glad to have found Treetops!
I find this school exceptional! I can t even begin to express my gratitude for the change Treetops has made in all our lives. Treetops gives each child, as different as they are, the opportunity to experience education as it best fits them. They encourage them to explore their own goals in their own ways. It is a coop school you don t just invest the hours, you invest interest. If your looking for a school that will invest in your children the way you do, that is rich in education, over abundant in creativity, and fosters amazing men and women, this is the school for you. Thank you Treetops for all you do for my children!
Treetops is outstanding. The curriculum keeps the children interested in learning and challenged. The teachers are concerned with the child's education and the child's values, which is very refreshing.
Treetops is a gem. The teachers are professional, caring, and knowledgeable about their subject areas. I have found that they really want to get to know the students, their likes/dislikes, and strengths/weaknesses. I really like the personal attention the students receive. What I like best is that the students are allowed to be themselves. They don't have to fit into a cookie cutter mold. Yes, the TEKS are taught and students are prepared for TAKS. Everyone doesn't learn the same way and the teachers recognize that.
Treetops school has given my children opportunities to grow in ways they wouldn't have in a large setting. The teachers really know my kids, oftentimes for years, + work to capitalize on their strengths - my kids feel connected to their teachers + this enhances their learning. The administration has brought the school through a difficult transition from private to charter + continues to strive to maintain its mission of concern for every student, respect for persons and property, community service + preservation of the environment. This wholistic approach has helped shape the character of my children as well as their curiosity about learning. Whether it meets your childs' needs depends on what you are seeking. I found the administration to be supportive and invested in my children and that has made all the difference for us.
I think that the Treetops school is run very haphazardly. There are little to no extracurricular activities to engage the children. The staff allows the children to call them by their first names preceded with Mr. or Mrs. One other gripe I have is the lack of trash recepticles on campus. If students bring home any of their uneaten lunch, the student has to dig through the garbage in their lunchpack to get to their food. (Very unsanitary) The only explanation offered by faculty was that it is 'tradition' to take the trash home. Where does it go? Check the creek next to the school!
As a recent high school student at Treetops, this school is very good, but still has many problems that normal public schools have. The funding for this school is very low, and the school lost 3 or 4 seniors English TAKS tests this year. Teacher's like to go on power trips a lot, but they get through the curriculum. Students get away with a lot of things that they normally wouldn't in a normal high school. The school is a lot freer than a normal high school and there is usually plenty of commotion in and out of classes. My recommendation? Only go as a last resort. Don't go just to go.
treetops is the best school in the area, it is far better than the HEB school district and other schools that are allegedly top notch. The parents care and the new teachers are excellent.
Small school with small class size. Children get one on one attentinon. School is somewhat disorganized which can be frustrating to parents
What first attracted my husband and I to this school for our 14 year daughter was the 20 acre secluded spacious campus grounds. The campus grounds has lots of tress and is remiscent of Summer Christian Camp. We were looking for a school with an above average academic score from the state and with a history of above average TEKS scores. We also sought to find a school not suffering from gang issues and other crime issues. Our daughter has not started her 1st day yet, however, so far so good. From our research, the teaching staff has an average of 11 years of experience with many teachers having Masters or PhD degrees. A good percentage of the teachers have attended Christian colleges. Over 90% of graduating Seniors go on to attend college.
I also want to review this school as a former teacher. The director of this school means well, but the teachers at the school have to fly most of the time by the seat of their pants. Sometimes, there aren't even textbooks to teach the course. This school was wonderful earlier on, but has no vision or unified purpose. It't just another public school. Stay at your neighborhood schools. A higher quality education is available where you live. No need to drive to Euless.
Treetop was there for my granddaughter during a period of her life that she needed what they had to offer: a smaller teacher to student ratio, some extra-curricular activities such as band and theater, and an acceptable educational plan. Although the word 'exceptional' in the place of 'acceptable' in the preceding sentence would have been better; nevertheless, given the other benefits, we were pleased with the results of the year that we had experience there.
The school was a great let down. We thought that our 2 children would get the education by going here. The school is dirty, teachers seem to be mostly voluteers. Our children were in the 4 grade and the 9th grade. We wouldn't recommend this school for your child.
