This school for us was not a good fit at alll. Would honestly say make sure to seriously look over alll the class rooms because they really only teaching with only one or two learning style and if it's not your child's they will fall sooo behind and be so miserable and hate school and be sooo bored. The style is extremely overwhelming very un creative and very very mundane and yes extremely drill sargine. Some staff- just one who is supposed to be expert in "I'll leave it blank" was sooo patronizing that going to her for help was soooo upsetting and my child felt superbly extra dumb when seeing her.
No bi-lingle course also if behind easily homework for kindergarten first grade and second can become several hours nooo joke .
Some children do great here but it feels like cookie cutter kids and little to honestly none hope for any that may have" issues" arise.
But seriously some do good but it's of the same type of learning style they teach
My son is gifted academically and was bored at Hillcrest. Thomas Edison North is wonderful at allowing him to work ahead. He loves the challenge. I appreciate that the principal and the teacher listened to me when I described my son's abilities and are actually doing something about it.
This school is ok. It's good that there is another option in Cache Valley. There is no gifted program, so if your child is advanced, get ready for major boredom. Sometimes the school is a little drill seargent like. Overall, there's a lack of creativity in the curriculum. But, the orchestra teacher may be the best in the state.
Excellent school. Caring teachers and administration. Challenging curriculum. High expectation for respect for others. Parents can volunteer as much as they want. Good amount of homework. Everyday I get to see my child do things I never imagined at such a young age they could do.
I cannot say enough good things about this school! My kids are happy and they are receiving a higher standard of education than the traditional public schools. The positive reinforcement that teachers give students makes all the difference in their motivation to learn. My kids love this school!
My son has attended this school for two years and it has been wonderful. The staff really care about the kids and making school a positive learning experience. I love that each grade teaches concepts in the same style. Parents are incouraged to volunteer at least 4 hours a month which really helps the teachers give individual attention and focus on teaching. A truly wonderful school experience for my son.
I have been extremely happy with TECS. My child is in K this year and I can't believe how much he's learned and how fast yet he's never frustrated with his homework. His teacher and the teachers assistant have been great and always give feedback on anything that might need my attention. Parental involvement is a high priority here and highly encouraged. I help out once a week for an hour and am amazed at how well the class is ran. The principle is very involved with the student's and has a great outlook on how a school should be ran. The curriculum here seems to work very well with the students and their learning. Even I've learned some new techniques with math and spelling. Great school!
