I was a student here four years ago and I am proud to have been called a Tiger. This is an excellent school with wonderful staff. The teachers are very nice and do their job well. Keep on keeping on :)

My school is GREAT! The administrators and staff are very attentive! They are great at solving issues that occur within the school setting as well as assisting with neighborhood issues that tend to trickle in. They work well with parents and do all they can to assist in any way they can. I LOVE TYLER!

Awesome staff and school. Looking to be here until the 5th grade. I glad my daughter is here at this school. Ms. Burrow is great with her. She is learning more than her previous school.

Tyler Elementary is very attentive to the needs of my child and his academic growth. His teachers have all been wonderful about keeping us informed of progress and areas of concern alike.

The teachers, assistants, staff and specialists at Tyler elementary school live the Hampton City Schools vision/motto. They do whatever the need to help every child, every day, whatever it takes. Just walk through the doors and you will feel welcome. It is easy to see that each teacher cares and knows how to teach.

My daughter was in the special education program at Tyler, it was a horrible experience!! She has autism, but no one had any idea how to teach her, calm her down, redirect her at all. It was really heartbreaking to see her come home everyday very anxious and high strung because she had been crying all day. The special ed class had a huge range of grades K-5, absolutely ridiculous!! She did not get any attention at all, there was no way for them to work on her IEP goals b/c they were so overwhelmed! We only lasted 2 weeks at this school we couldn't last any longer. Her teachers & principal were in agreement that maybe another placement would be best however, Hampton special Ed office did not agree and tried to convince me to give them time to "train" their teachers!!! So needless to say she is in a much better situation in a different school district. Newport news has better classes at kiln creek, riverside, nelson elem for autism and Yorktown/Williamsburg school district is definitely worth looking into you won't be disappointed) If you have a child in special Ed in Hampton you need all the prayer and help you can get. Unfortunately we had to get out of Hampton altogether!!

How dare you demean the former principal of Tyler Elementary! The compassion Mrs. House showed for ALL children in that school was tremendous. She maintained a standard of excellence and NO ...she did not tolerate inappropriate behavior and disrepect. She ran a tight ship and the school was extremely successful because of it. Parents need to do their part so that the school and the teachers can do theirs. The principal should not have to pascify parents who won't take responsibilities for their own kids! The public needs to know that Mrs. House left Tyler in good shape...let's just see what the end of this year will bring since she left!

The new principal is way much better than the other one they had. The new principal takes his time to understands our elementary students, they are only kids not prisinors. The other principal would suspend students every day it was ridiculous. The school is way much better with him around! love the shcool!

I love Tyler. My children have attended since Mrs. House's administration and she is wonderful! When she and Mrs. Howard were the administrators, I could always depend on everything being in focus, however the change to the different vice-principal has made it difficult for me. She is not honest and is rude to some of the kids. She alwo does not always tell the truth. I hope there can be a change when the new principal Mr. Blowe comes. If the current VP stays, he will have a rough time.


Posted March 26, 2009

My child has been at tyler for two years. They have alot of parent resources but make it impossible to get to them. The councelors are a joke. The principal and vice principal cater to a specific group of kids. My daughter causes no issues and it seems that because she is quiet and does her work and gets by ok, that she gets neglected. If there is something she doesn't understand it gets over looked because she doesn't cause a rucus in class. That seems to be the only way a child can get attention and help. If she has trouble with something new in a subject, we don't find out about it until we see her work which should be sent home every thursday, but almost never does. Like I said, If your child is has behavior issues, this is the school for them. They can just skate by.

I have a daughter in first grade here. My family and I love it here at Tyler. The teachers and staff go above and beyond for EVERY student.

Posted October 3, 2007

I just read the reviews above. I am wondering what some of the reviewers were looking for in a school. My daughter attended Tyler for five years and is now in middle school. Every single teacher went the extra mile to help her achieve and to make sure she was ready for middle school. Best of all, they loved her and challenged her every step of the way. The principal is absolutely outstanding. The nurse and school counselor both do everything in their power to help kids and parents. The Parent Involvement Center is fabulous and practically begs parents to become truly involved in school life. the school facility is shabby. I agree. Then pitch in and help clean up the grounds and see what they need to make it better. I love Tyler School.

I have two children that attend Tyler. They started in K and are now in the fourth grade. The school staff have been very supportive and overall I think Tyler has been a great learning foundation for them. As in every school, teachers are hit and miss. Ms. House is always kind and friendly when I have been at the school,as well as the office staff. She is professional and knowledgeable. I have only had a concern about the class my child was in once and Ms. House took care of the concern immediately.I think Ms Curry and her PTA helpers do a great job. I think they do a good job of making the school an inviting, warm and safe learning environment even though the school needs some serious repair. They do a good job with what they have to work with.

I had a son who attended Tyler. My overall satisfaction was very low. My impression of the teachers and staff were poor. I spent many days at the school observing his classes. I had several meetings with his teachers. They seemed clueless as to how to assess a child who was well behaved. Obviously their priorities are askew.

As far as the quality of education in this school. We have a child that has attended since k and is now in 4th grade, both myself and my husband have been very satisfied with the school and the teachers. The only problem i had was attended to very quickly and to our complete satisfaction. Our daughter loves the staff and the staff return their affection to her on a daily basis. We love the fact that the school is in a quiet neighborhood, we know this because we live in it as well. Our daughter scored a perfect score on her benchmark test for history and above on all the other subjects. The teachers and staff go the extra mile for the parents who are willing to work with them and gladly listen to all input. The school has our support and has alot to offer anyone who attends.

Tyler has many children who come with baggage from their home life. Parents who have night jobs and not enough resources for the children, and worse problems make it challenging for learning to take place. Teachers at Tyler truly care about these kids and it shows. The administration is fully committed to learning and supporting the students and staff. My child enjoys going to school at Tyler.
