School Reviews

  • Recommended October 21, 2013 - My son has been attending TCCS since first grade. As a former business professional, turned stay at home mom, I have had many opportunities to volunteer behind the scenes at school and each time I have learned about more things to praise. From teachers who truly love The Lord and are called to teach, to administrators who see the big picture, yet focus on important details such as student body personal character growth as well as academics and inclusive athletics, to a group of like minded parents who are trying to raise up spiritual champions to take on this complex world. Rigorous academics and talented fine arts makes TCCS such a strong value. Where else should we put our $ but into our children''s hearts? TCCS is not a perfect school but it has helped mold our 9th grade son into a strong young man of character and courage. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 08, 2012 - Tri City Christian School is a wonderful place to partner with teachers, coaches and staff to raise godly children! As a faith based school, Jesus Christ is the center of all we do. .. academics, sports, music/drama, events, technology, etc. My son recently graduated and is attending Boise State University. My daughter is a 6th grader. I know first hand that TCCS offers a quality education while training students to be spiritual champions! You will love being a part of the TCCS family. Check us out! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 08, 2012 - This school has been a blessing to our family. We are loving the uniforms - makes mornings and laundry so simple! The leadership and heart of the school is so grounded in the Lord, we are so grateful. When you drive on campus you can feel it. My children are being challenged and supported in their own ways! Thank you Jesus! Thank you TCCS! - Posted by Parent
