I would highly recommend this school! I transfered my daugther out of a Bedford County School and never looked back. My daughter's grades went up to A B Honor Roll and her SOL test scores are now above average. She is now in Brookville Middle School and while it is different, I am still more pleased with Campbell County Schools than Beford County Schools!
I am very pleased with Tomahawk. My children recently transfered from another school district and they have both done very well. They encourage the children to do there best without overloading them with stress. The children are given the chance to perform for parents frequently and the staff makes them feel so proud of their accomplishments. They also give the parents many opportunities to come to the school to be involved. We are very happy with Tomahawk thus far!
TES is a great school within a great school district. It is academically challenging, my children's PALS test scores rise even farther above standard every year. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and teachers communicate well with parents. There are strict standards on attendance, requiring valid reasons for missing school (such as illness). Full safety measures are enforced, from pick-up and drop-off traffic patterns, to checking ID before releasing a child to any adult not immediately recognized by staff. We like this school so much, as our family searches for a new house to purchase, we will only consider homes in the Tomahawk district.
Tomahawk is very parent unfriendly. They do not welcome parents to visit and very rarely have functions for parents to come to. They have no consideration for students situations, and have a total lack of disregard for parents. They encourage you to just drop your child off in the morning and pick them up at their convenience, and they only want them to ride the bus, and have very little patience if you need to pick up your child, and will not allow you to until 30 mins after school is dismissed unless you have a note from a doctor to release your child. This school is ridiculous, it is very much not recommended.
