T.L. Pink is a fabulous school. The staff is well prepared and works well together. The principal and assistant principal are outstanding. They offer guidance and support to staff, students, and parent. Students at Pink receive a quality education.

I am so unhappy with this school this is my daughters second year here and my experience with this school has not been any better. The teachers are rude not all teacher some are very professional and friendly but some could use some training in ethics. There in a big lack of communication between the school and the parents. The school sends important information home verbally with the students. My daughter forgets that its early release and fails to mention it to me yet the school buts that responibilty on the students.

T. L. Pink provides students with not only an academic education, but also a social one that is geared toward real world situations. My student has attended for one year now and will continue until he is finished.

The PPCD program has just started and needs more updating and upgrading. The staff though is great. The principal is very dedicated to the school, the children and the teachers.
