I find my years at TCHS were pretty good. Never had any problems with the teachers, or students for that matter. There are a plethora of opportunities to get involved. The choir is very successful, as are the other academic UIL teams. The band under the new band director is just amazing, as are the other extra curriculars, including a new video production club/class and architecture classes. The teachers are amazing and are actually interested in their students, if the students give them a chance. At least, the AP teachers. The new administration is cracking down and the school is really shaping up behavior-wise as well as literally as the new school is nearing completion. I look forward to seeing how TCHS will grow and change in the future.

are you kidding me. Do you still feel this way? Then again, what grades are your kids in. We liked grade school too.

I taught there for one school year during an administration turn over. I think the new principal M. Rhodes will get the school back on track. As for my own children no they will not attend this district until it gets turned back around. On a positive note the new administration looks great! This school needs to be restored to it's best potential and I think it will be.

Need additional support from parent's... Overall Great School... I moved my family from D.I.S.D. to T.C.I.S.D. and would do it again, if I had too. I have A/P/G.T. students and they are finally challenged rather then wasting away. Great extracurricular activities...drama...soccer...football..tennis..bowling and many more.--parent who cares
