School Reviews

I have found the academics at Tristate to be well rounded and the administration and faculty very loving, supportive, and truly Christian. They also have excellent athletics, and my sons love it there.

They have a strong k3, k4 and k5 program that is all day, with before and after care for the working parent. My children has participated in extracurricular activities over the years to include: Drama, Choir, Science Fair, Math Olmypics. They have also been part of the Soccer, Basketball, baseball, volleyball, cheerleading, and golf team. They get to grow spiritually through Bible Class and weekly chapel services. The school also encourages the students to volunteer in their community.
