School Reviews

  • Recommended December 18, 2013 - TCS is so much more than a school to us - it is a family. It is a nurturing place where children are safe to express themselves. The academics are top notch. We are in our 9th year there and the amazing teachers and staff have taken my children from pre-school to middle school. They intimately understand my children''s strengths and weaknesses and they work with us to help them reach their full potential. They nurture great students and great human beings. They don''t just talk about diversity, they embody it. - Posted by Parent
