The best School ever. Just love everything about this school and so does my first grade son. His teacher Mrs. Bird and all the other staff members are awesome; they work so hard to make these children excell and love school at the the same time.

I decided to put my kids in TEC this school year and they absolutely LOVE IT!! The Principal,Super know all the kids and is always out watching over the kids in the morning. Its so nice to know your kids are in good hands. The curriculm is great its challenging my kids and that is what i was looking for. The school before was great but they where getting bored easily. Thank You staff of TEC for taking the time to work with all the children.

I was a student at Temple Education center and graduated in 2008. It is a great school. What really makes them stand out is the one on one attention you get from the teachers. They all care so much about their students!

I am a comprehension and retention tutor dedicated to helping these kids succeed. The teachers are more dedicated than I am. They hold sessions every day until 5pm to tutor and every few weeks they hold a session on a Friday from 4pm to midnight to tutor students that are struggling. These teachers hold sessions at their house on the weekends providing tutoring and food out of pocket because they know how important education is.

Awesome School, the principal, Mr. Osbourne and the teachers really care about the students and provide a level of interaction not found on public school campuses.

Both of my children attend Temple Education Center. One in 11th grade and one in 3rd grade. I could not be more pleased with this school. Every child receives the atttention they need to succed. Everey teacher and staff knows every child in this school. It is more like a big family rather than a school. The principle is very helpful in all matters that concern the children. I am so happy that I found this school.

My kids are gifted and in the regular classroom they would have been bored with the regular curriculum. They have the opportunity to excel. The way the school is set up parallels college style learning in which material is given to a student and the student is expected to read and study on their own. This is a great way to build good study skills in kids early.

My son has come to TEC since 2004, and he has blossomed 98%. The small classrooms are a plus and the self-paced courses are what make the difference. I also like the merit program since it gives the kids incentives to become better.

Since my daughter has started going to Temple Education Center her grades have gone up. Her teachers and the staff really care about her work habits, home life and safety. I am continously in touch with her teacher as to what is going on. I never feel left out about anything. Temple Education Center is a wonderful place for any child to get the education that they need.

I think this school is great. I have been more impressed with the charter school, then I was when I first put my children in the I.S.D. The smaller classrooms, is what got me, and how they approched the teaching aspect of education. My sons have really accomplised something being at the charter school. They seem to have gotten their self-estine back.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) was used to test students in English language arts and mathematics in grade 11. The grade 11 exit Level TAKS is a high school graduation requirement. TAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
