Because we wanted more than a room full of kids for my 4 yr. old to "hang out" in all day. We wanted a warm and caring environment where she can learn and grow. TCS has given us that and so much more! We could not be happier with our decision to be part of the TCS family.

They DO have sports there, even though the comment before me says so. The coaches do a great job at teaching the fundamentals and they have always been positive towards my children.

Absolutely wonderful! My child is entering her third year at Texas Christian. She enjoys the atmosphere and her grades show it. The administration is extremely concerned about the children attending the school. They create a place where your child can receive a top-notch education and still praise their Lord. Sadly, we did not find that public school provided a safe atmosphere, nor was the administration attentive to the individual child's education needs. My child is looking forward to the Science Fair this year. Every other year the children participate in a Science Fair, and then the next year a History Fair. The children also participate in an Art Fair each year. Debate and Speech competitions are also offered. The school supports parent involvement. They encourage parents to become involved in all aspects of their child's educational experience. The normal sports are offered. Spanish is a required subject in primary grades.

My son is currently a junior, and my daughter is in 8th grade. We started attending when my son was in kindergarten. He's currently testing (Stanford Achievement Test) at 98th percentile in math, 96th percentile in English. But most importantly, my kids have grown spiritually and formed exemplary character while attending this school. Great caring, loving teachers, warm family atmosphere.

My kids have attended for eleven years now. The oldest is now in high school, the youngest in junior high. They are very intelligent, well-rounded individuals with Christ-like character, evidence of the excellence in education and leadership they have received at Texas Christian. High school kids are taught life concepts with a Christian worldview and are afforded extra educational opportunities such as trips to the state and national capitals. I highly recommend Texas Christian to any parent!

I have had two seniors graduate from Texas Christian High School and they (1 girl & 1 male) have succeeded not only in college but in making good life choices that will effect them for a life time. I currently have another teenager at this school and I am very pleased with how the staff prepared students not only for college but life in general. TCHS now has dual credit courses where the students are able to receive their required high school credits as well as college credits, getting a jump on college! I would highly recommend this school for any 3 years old through 12th grade student.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
