I have had experience with several elementary schools in several states (job-related moves) and I can say, unequivocally, that TES is the best elementary school my family has ever attended. Low student-teacher ratio, high level of engagement from teachers and staff, high level of community support and involvement, and too many great programs to count. Fabulous, fabulous school.
I call this the best kept secret in the Upper Valley --get all the benefits of a private school (low student-teacher ratio) with a free public school. Amazingly caring, nurturing environment where everyone knows and cares for the kids. Teachers are smart and willing to take on new challenges and the recent administration has shaken up the old guard and brought in lots of new blood for an enhanced academic community. I had a 504 kid who was well-loved and supported and a high academic learner who thrives there. Nice group of parents, teachers, and kids with a supportive community. A lot of exposure to green education and the outdoors and much room for parental involvement in March Madness where parents teach workshops during the month.
TES is an amazing school! There is a high level of communication between the parents, teachers and administration. Parental involvement within the classrooms is welcomed and encouraged. The school offers access to a large amount of extra-curricular activities with the opportunity parental/community involvement.for There is a great sense of school pride and a spirit of cooperation and respect amongst the students.
