School Reviews

Our son who is 17 has been a student at TCI since he was 5 years old. We feel extremely fortunate that he has been a part of the TCI program throughout his school years. TCI has worked with us and our son to overcome his challenges and they work with him to reach his highest potential. Although there have been a couple of teachers who we weren''t thrilled with (over the 12 years he’s been at TCI), the vast majority of TCI’s staff are absolutely incredible. TCI does a great job of teaching each student based on their individual needs and potential. We are excited about their adult program, The Center for Independence, and the possibility of our son continuing to grow with TCI''s programs.
