There is a "No Place for Hate" policy at Tobias and the students recognize that standing up to bullying and caring for other students is a must! There are encouraging programs to recognize students when they lead by example with their acts of kindness and respect for others.

Tobias encourages the students to use their MAPS (making good choices, always being kind, practicing self control and show respect for others) and has strong leadership and recognition programs in place to "reward" students for their efforts to be fair, honest and show integrity!

I am so proud to be a parent at Tobias Elementary! The staff and leadership at the school are beyond what we expected based on some reviews. The principal and teachers promote an excellent education, as well as leadership, responsibility, integrity and creativity in the students. The teachers and principals have always been available to listen and address any concerns about my daughter's education and well being. There are many coveted schools in the district, and Tobias should definitely be at the top of that list!

Very disappointed in this school. We had family members that had attended and enjoyed it. We spent my daughter's second grade year here. Her teacher was rude and did not make us feel welcome. My daughter said all she did was yell at the class. When I tried to talk to the teacher teacher she said, I shouldn't be so involved in my child's education. I wish I had pulled my daughter or of the school sooner. I could go on about other problems, but biggest advice, don't go there. Thankfully we were just renting and could move out of the district.

Tobias is an excellent school that takes care of kids. The staff works hard to ensure educational success of every student. The school is a leader in PBIS (positive behavior intervention and support) implementation. The school offers extra-curricular after school clubs and recognizes the positive contributions of students. Every teacher participates in a professional learning community, continuously learning and growing to help all students.

Both of my boys attend Tobias Elementary and I love the teachers at this school. One of my children has been in the special education program since kinder and the teachers are amazing and work really hard with the kids to keep them on track and go above and beyond.

My daughter has attended Tobias Elementary School since Kindergarten and is a 5th grader this year. This is her last year at Tobias. Out of all the years, other than her Kindergarten year at Tobias this has been the best, by far, year she has ever had. I have loved this campus and love the new Principal Ms. Collier. She has given the students opportunities to grow and excel by letting them Explore beyond the campus. Thank you Ms. Collier for truly putting the meaning back into the name of Tobias the "Explorers" because that is what they have truly been this year. My daughter loved Camp Champion! GREAT campus if you are looking for one that truly cares about your child's future success.

My daughters loved it at first,,,, then my 9 year old daughter was being talked down to from her teacher, about a home work assignment that she forgot to bring. Grant you this was the FIRST week of school.. Luckily my husband was still in the process of leaving and walking to our vehicle, When he saw our daughter crying running out of the school. No supervision and no teacher around. Informed principal about teachers behavior and nothing got done. She was scared to go back. Took her out that day... Good luck.

When my children first started at this school I thought it was the best. VERY welcoming and every student was a priority. I never dreamed I would ever have anything negative to say about this school. But, with the hiring of the new principle (second year there) it has not been the same. They no longer seem to care about the students nor do they seem to want the parents to be involved in their child's education. The teachers no longer seem happy either. I personally am moving my children to a new school.

Welcoming teachers who are excited about teaching and learning with students. The AP is very warm and welcoming and has a personal connection to all she comes in contact with. Teachers and students have several support people to help them help their students as they become the best teachers for our children.

What a pleasure this school has been. The teachers are wonderful and even the other parents I've interacted with are great. Its nice to feel a sense of community and that we are all working together to give our kids what they need, a great education and a great environment to grow to their potential.

This school is the first place that my 3rd grade special needs child has really excelled! She made the honor roll for the first time! The special education department has been wonderful and even with a mid-year change of teacher for her, it has been smooth with no interruption of services. I'd recommend this school to any parent.

When we moved here about 3 years ago I had 3 children going to this school and everyone was wonderful. My youngest had a hard time adjusting and her Kinder teacher was great and would take time out to have a one on one to let me know how my daughter was doing. Of course there have been a few teachers that we have gone through that my children have had that were not the best with children, but all in all the teachers are great. We especially love Mrs. Chilek. I also feel my kids are safe at this school. You now have to show I.D. to enter the building and sign in. This school is great!

I was very impressed by Tobias. However, now that we are losing the dual language program, I am deeply saddened and angry. My daughter will now have to transfer schools to follow the program which leaves her with no way to be bussed to her dad's school or leave the program all together. I wish they would have discussed this with parents before the decision was made!!

No one has mentioned the Dual Language (Spanish/English) program at this school. That is worth an extra star right there. It is incredibly forward thinking and is helping to create multi-lingual individuals from Kindergarten on up.

The advanced Alpha H program for elem. students is only 4 hours a week, and advanced materials in the class are only available if the teacher will assist. They cannot provide curiculum beyond the current grade level. Some great teachers but more should be provided for students that want to learn. They rotate 'specials' computer time, art, music with an extra dose of PE. There is a good level of parental involvement and an above average PTA. The principal meets with parents monthly to answer questions and go over issues. They are focusing on science in their curriculum now.

I feel that the school should be more secure. There has been several times that I have walked in to the school and walk right by the office without having to sign and I have had two teachers see me walk by and don't even question me. I should have been stopped and ask where is my vistor pass. My child attends that school and I am very worried about his and all the other childrens safety. If the office is not careful someone could just go into the school and know one would questioned it. I have never seen the principal outside when we drop of our kids or pick them up. When my son attended Fuentes the Principal was always walking around inside the building and outside. I like to see more of the Principal around the school.
