This school is now under new management. As a parent of a TCM student, I have to say that the majority of the teachers are kind, caring, and committed to teaching. There are a few bad apples in the bunch that can spoil the good reputation of the school. The entire staff at TCM is willing to work with you. If you are looking for perfection in a school, then home schooling is the best option. If you are looking for a school that will help your child not only academically but socially & emotionally, then TCM (and Lynchburg City Schools) is the best choice.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
