Texas Christian School5

Texas Christian School is such an amazing place from an academic stand point to the gospel teaching that my kids get from the staff and other families at Texas Christian. I feel that my kids are safe and have a wonderful experience attending Texas Christian. The kids love their teachers and really appreciate the school administrators that are so passionate about students and their well being. I know there is no perfect school but if you want your child cultivated with values and Christian principals Texas Christian is the right place.
My children went here for a few years. It was the worst mistake I have ever made as a parent. Some of the teachers truly care about the kids but it is really a hit or miss. The Jr. High students have problems writing the simplest of papers and, rather than challenging the students, my child was simply given good grades and promoted. There is only so much that can be done at home and, with the high tuition we paid, we certainly expected better support from the school. We've moved on now and the kids are happier. This school doesn't have Christian values unless you count how well they worship the almighty dollar.
Can I give negative stars? WORST SCHOOL EVER! Incredibly disappointed in the lack of professionalism of this so called "Christian" school. I can't begin to stress how terrible the experience was. So bad that we had to withdrawal our child in the middle of the semester. When I went to the director with my issues she left the conversation by reminding me I signed a contract & would owe the money & that they would have no issues putting it on my credit if I decided to withdraw my child & did not want to pay for the upcoming months. She had no concern with my 5 year old little girl AT ALL. Don't worry Texas "Christian" you will get your money & that should tell you something. I would rather withdrawal her & pay you services WE did not get, then to let her finish the semester or spend another day in that vile, emotionally abusive place. You broke my child's heart and spirit. Shame on TCS for selling a loving, caring, Christian school when you are anything but. We feel so scammed. Taking her out of this school was the best thing we could have done. Parent to parent please don't make the same mistake I made. You will be greatly disappointed. We will be filing a formal complaint.
We were going to send our son to military school because he was very rebellious. We decided to try Texas Christian to see if he would change. After only a couple weeks we saw a difference. The kids at TC took him right in like they had known him for years. Our son is very involved in the school and plays sports and loves it. We Thank TCS kids and staff for the great influence on our son!
Wish I would have found TCS earlier for my kids. My kids will graduate from TCS they love the school as well. I would recommend TCS for anyone who is looking for a great Christian school! They have a great staff who love the kids.
TCS is an amazing school. Very family oriented, strives for every student to reach their full potential and go to whatever college they want. The teachers genuinely care about each student. Students who graduate from TCS get major scholarships if not full rides to college. I know many graduates from TCS and see alumni around the school all the time. My son will be graduating in two years and we are very proud and excited for his future. Do not pay attention to any negative talk. The school is amazing and our family loves it at TCS.
Texas Christian is an amazing school! It is small. The average class is 16 - 18 kids but what parent wouldn't want that kind of number in a classroom. The academics are more than challenging. My son started multiplication in kindergarten. Students who come and visit for the day always want to come back the very next day. They feel welcome, at home, and can tell the teachers go the extra mile to help each individual student.
WORST SCHOOL MY SON HAS ATTENDED. This school is all about the money and don't care for the well being of their students. There is no security for kids. Anybody can take a child and they wont even noticed. I have had my husband, my mom, my mother in law, my sister pick him up only one relative is in the pick up list ...but they have NEVER asked for ID nor nothing.. My mom picks my son up everyday and they have no idea if he left or not. Every little thing is about money. I know it is a business at the en of the day but they are quick in letting your child starve all if he/she doesn't have money to pay for food. It is ridiculous not very christian at all.
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.
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!
