My daughter has gone to Tillicum since she was in Kindergarden and she loves it. I have never had any problems with the staff. They are very helpful and concerned about the students and the futures they could have. I believe the best Principal in the District is at this school. He is great with the kids and the staff. And o how funny he can be. This is a great school, and I am glad that my daughter feels comfortable there.

Both of my children go to Tillicum, in the third and fifth grades. For the last three years or so, I have been impressed with the school and have nothing but good to say about them. My fifth grader has gone here since kindergarten, and this school has come a long way. Not saying this school is perfect, because I can't, but I can always resolve an issue when it does arrive. Both of my children are doing well, and although my fifth grader struggles sometimes, her teacher and I work closely together with her to help her with her work.

Tillicum is a beaitiful Elementary. The school spirit and parent involvement shines right through. I miss the days my children went, but now they go to Woodbrook Middle School which is also a beautiful and shining school.
