The bulling and the fights are really bad at this school the principal is worth nothing. My child told me that the teachers were on their cell phones a lot and she also heard a teacher curse. The communication is also bad with the teachers and the principal. They will not return your phone calls. I am pulling my child out for 2014/2015 school year. What happen to the good teachers in mesquite, they use to have some of the best teachers. Mesquite has really gone down hill.

My Son has being going to tisigner for 3 years now. It seems that it is getting worse. Bulling is a big issue most kids walk home alone. No parental guidence. I have now relocated and thankfully my son will be attending another school with better ratings and more than anything an actual education. Had issues with teh Cafeteria Employees being rude to kids no wonder they have 1 day only a month when you can visit your child for lunch. So no parents will see the way their child is treated. As for teh principal and asst principal both previous and recent. They clearly come from an uneducated backgrounf/ field where it is normal to act teh way they do. with no worries to address issues with kids. My son is a Straight A honor roll student and was bullied by other kids because of that. How rediculous!

Two of my children have gone to this school and I pulled them out of there as fast as I could. The principal is not worth a penny. She tried to say it was my child's fault that she was getting bullied. Not to mention that their "beloved" Ms Carpenter gave me the finger when we were at a stop light next to her. No wonder 95% the kids in that school are punks. Every time a parent came up to that school to complain, Carpenter would call the police on them. I guess she was afraid of getting beat up by a concerned parent.

I can not say enough about Mrs Carpenter, she goes beyond the call of duty as she is always putting her students and faculty first. She is the greatest

The teachers are wonderful to work with. Mrs. Carpenter is very hard to work for & is very hard to know if you are doing a good job. If you think you are doing a great job, she doesn't go out of her way to let you know. She does care about the students a lot.

Tisinger is a wonderful school with great support. It is in an economically disadvantaged area, and parental support is difficult to find.

Both of my boys have gone to Tisinger since they were in Kindergarten. Mrs. Carpenter became the principal during our 2nd year. She is extermly kind and knows my children by name. She is a great example of a leader. She works well with the teachers to make sure that they have what they need in order to teach and bring out the best in the students. We have gone from a mediocre school to a recognized school under her leadership. I am very proud to say that my children have attended Tisinger.

The teacher's and Principal at Tisinger are very qualified and genuinely care about the students. I was very disappointed in parent involvement. Only 3 parents from my son's class bothered to join the PTA. My son learned well in a very structured environment. Tisinger also achieved the rating of 'Recognized' last year. Quite an accomplishment. The Principal runsa tight ship and expects the kids to do and act their best at all times. I appreciate an educator who does not cater to kids, but expects them to learn.
