My daughter attended Tucker Capps from 2nd-5th grade and absolutely loved it!! The administration is awesome and the teachers have high expectations of their students. Behavioral problems appeared to be minimal and the school climate was motivating and caring. Great School!

TC has been wonderful for our kids. We specifically wanted to send them to a magnet school and heard great things about TC from other parents. After getting custody, we discovered that our children were both significantly behind their peers academically and we were very concerned about how we could possibly catch them up. In just half a school year at TC, they both improved immensely and we are thrilled with the structure, rigor and quality of the education they are receiving at TC. Both children are now performing at the level of their peers. The teachers are consistent with their structured methods, and their communication with parents is fantastic - we never have to wonder how the children are performing. Both of our kids seem very happy and well-adjusted in their new school - a testament to the positive environment the school creates.

Tucker Capps may have been *great* at one time, but now it appears to not be the case. There are some teachers who are wonderful, but most act like they don't want to be there. The principal is extremely overbearing and passive aggresive. Be very careful around her, she will address you like one of the kids at the school. Also, teachers will single kids out and make their lives miserable. After talking with other parents, it seems to be rampant in the school. As long as you bow down to the principal and her staff you are ok, the moment you question anything they will target you and your child.

Our daughter is in 1st Grade at Tucker Capps and we are thrilled with the structure that is established in the classes. This structure has allowed her to excel in the classroom and in other outside activities. I have always found the entire staff very helpful and they all make a point to learn the students names which makes them all feel valued and appreciated. The teachers are there for the children and do everything they can to help the children succeed.

Our daughter excelled in K far more than expected, she had a very caring and teacher who really worked hard at keeping everyone on track. Despite our daughters special needs (aspergers, adhd , no meds) the school went the extra mile to work with me and kept open communication and provided counseling when needed. All together I belive Tucker Caps is a wonderful school and the entire staff is great! Send your kids here with no reservation...
