The school is okay for children who do not aim high for academics. It is good for kids who struggle in big schools socially. However, they are far behind in academics. We pulled my child and put her in the Katy public school and struggled academically in the beginning because she was not taught well at TCS. She is doing very well now into 2 years at public school academically and socially. It is a shame since we paid extra tuition to send our child here at TCS and yet didn't get enough education for my child. At least we found out before it was too late. My daughter went to TCS until 7th grade.
I am a single father of 3 children from kinder to middle school. When I first spoke with TCS staff, I was not sure I could make it work. The entire staff from top to bottom has helped me and my family in ways that are a blessing only given by God. This is our second year and I have seen my children loved, coached, taught, and blessed in ways that I could have never imagined. The Christian environment and family atmosphere at TCS is more than I could have asked for. God has truly blessed us with His love through TCS. I can never give enough thanks and praise to Him for the blessings of TCS to my family.
Texas Christian has does wonders for our children. Socially they have blossomed and regularly have get together with their classmates which never happened in their other school, academically they are challenged and are learning things that older kids in public school don t know and then spiritually they are being fed each day which is a huge blessing. We love TCS and can t wait to see them graduate!
There are so many reasons we chose to enroll our children at TCS. They offer challenging academics, spiritual encouragement and activities that our children enjoy as do many other schools. What really grabbed us about TCS was the warmth and love we felt when we walked in the doors. There is just something different about TCS. My daughter is doing amazing and loves coming to school and my son was so impressed about how welcoming the students were when he came in as the new kid. As everyone is saying, this truly is a spiritual family. We love this school.
Love how the school is like a second family for my kids. The teachers at TCS really care a lot about the students and they do everything they can to help the children learn. I also love how Mrs. Soliz (the principal) is always available and even answers the phones when you call. This is one school that REALLY cares.
The Best! There is no way that you could attend this school and not come out more advanced academically and be more knowledgeable about the Bible. The teachers here are super, the curriculum really is very challenging, and the environment is 100 times better than public. No school is perfect but this school is a family. My kids will graduate from TCS.
I attended Tcs for almost 8 years. Although I made a lot of great friends growing up there, I also think that people there could be so cruel. The students that attended that school were awful and had their noses in the air for who knows what reason. And what's sad is that a lot of those students had parents who were part of faculty and staff. I never learned anything from that school at all. They passed me every year even though my grades were horrible! It probably has to do with the nice check my parents were sending in every month! And if you think that private school automatically means a better environment then you may be wrong! I am not bashing all private schools but from personal experience I feel nothing but scarred after attending Texas Christian school for so long. What a waste of money. Not only was I abused by my classmates but I never learned anything! I finally transferred to public school and had to really learn how to have self discipline! It was definitely difficult building up the motivation to exceed in my studies after years of enabling and indifference from the Tcs faculty. In my experience, public school was much more bearable then Tcs.
This school is beyond excellent! The staff is warm and caring. My son is happy and wants to go to school daily. I am so thrilled for him. I looked at other schools when trying to decide where he should start Kindergarten and this was the only school where I felt the staff was truly sincere. Becky Soliz is absolutely fantastic.
My son has always been picked on in school. Nothing too bad but he came home everyday saying: "This kid called me this, this kid threw my pencil, they cuss all the time, etc." He asked me to find a place where he didn't have to hear all the mess every single day. I called Texas Christian and spoke to Mrs. Soliz. We toured, my son visited for a day, and he now wants to graduate from TCS. He loves going to school, the academics are more challenging, and I never hear him complain. TCS is a blessing to our family. Thank you!
We love going to TCS. We are new to the family of TCS and we have had a wonderful experience already. I was looking for a place where my daughter would actually do real academic lessons and bible. Some where she would feel comfortable talking about the things of God as well as learn academics. Me & my daughter senses that TCS has a different atmosphere(Christ) than the public school. The staff are professional and friendly. Family oriented, use natural products for cleaning.God led us to the right place!!!Were happy about TCS!
Beyond thrilled!!! All we ever heard about TCS was how great it was. We were so excited when we were accepted but did not expect it would be this great. My kindergartener is reading books, is working on second grade sight words, is learning multiplication, knows technology better than most of our family, has beautiful handwriting as well as cursive, is learning Spanish, loves her teachers, doesn t want me to come pick her up, hates when we have days off of school, is taking piano lessons, the list just keeps going on. My fourth grader loves coming to school which is the biggest blessing because normally I would be dragging him, his confidence has grown so much and his favorite class is Bible. There is no other school like TCS. Absolutely the best. Thank you to all the teachers and Mrs. Beckie! We love you!
I love Texas Christian School! I couldn't imgaine myself being any where else! Been apart of the family for over 12 years now. The school is Biblically based and it reflects. The students are on fire for Christ, families are involved in any way possible and the staff is simply the best! Keep up the awesome work Tigers!!!
As I read through other reviews I can't help but to nod my head in agreeance to everyone's emphasis on "apart of the family." It's so true! Not a single student, parent, staff or faculty is a stranger or outsider. Everyone is a team who works together creating a Christ centered environment. I can't say enough good things about Texas Christian School. As a parent, it's everything and more than I could want in my son's and daughter's everyday educational program. I always see alumni at the school coming back to see old friends and teacher's and always hear them saying they miss the family. Can't imagine my children graduating from anywhere else but TCS! It really is the best!
Super school! Great staff that will work with you. Biblically based world view without compromising quality education. I have spoken to several alumni who come and visit and they all say they were more than prepared for college and were accepted into the college of their choice. We love TCS.
All I can say is WOW!!! Texas Christian School is an excellent school where the teachers really do care about thier student's education and spiritual life. I finally found the place where my children will be till they graduate!
We LOVE TCS! Our family moved to Texas almost three years ago. We visited other Christian schools in the area but NONE compared to TCS. When we met the administration, we felt like FAMILY :) Thank youTCS for making the last two years WONDERFUL! The administration and teachers are some of the most GODLY, LOVING and CARING people we have ever met. God is at work here and we cant wait to see what is in store.
THE BEST SCHOOL AROUND!!! My kids are doing great and have never been happier! TCS is the best decision we have made for our family.
great school with a wonderful heart thats a besk kept secret around. Just wish it was run like big school and attract more kids
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.
