TBS has a special quality. Teachers are dedicated, high quality, and Christ-centered. The improvements over the summer look great. The new school year has a great deal of positive atmosphere. Things could not have started better. We are very happy to have our kids at TBS.
We have been sending our kids to this school for 10 years. The faculty listen when there are concerns, act quickly to right any wrongs (which are very far and few between!), and to make sure that we are kept aware of all goings on at the school if our kids are involved.
Our kids are forced to work through educational challenges that they have - whether it be in the form of grasping difficult mathematical formulas, or writing concise and properly structured papers, the teachers encourage and challenge our kids to do their best. When a key point is missed, they are allowed to review and correct, to make sure they understand the concepts presented.
We watch how our kids react to authority and work through situations that they don't necessarily agree with. In all cases, we have seen them either submit to that authority, or challenge the authority in question, and if the result is founded on biblical principle, still submit.
Conflict is a way of life. How are kids deal with conflict tells much about what is modeled to them during school hours. Our faculty is quick to get to the root cause of discord and disagreement, while at the same time, they foster an environment of trust and understanding for all involved.
These traits are the traits that we see displayed and modeled by our kids when they are NOT at school or around their peers. This tells me that they are being taught the same core values that we teach them at home!
We had a great experience with the teachers at TBS. Teachers have been excellent at communication, have genuinely cared about our kids, and are experts in their fields. One teacher tended to get behind on grades, but the rest have all been excellent.
TBS provides an excellent learning atmosphere with small class sizes that provide one-on-one attention and a solid Christian focus. Academics are well emphasized and the school offers a good variety of extracurricular options and community building events. It is a place where the kids are safe.
