TCS offers a lot of schooling options for our family of 4. They worked around our busy schedule by allowing my children to be in class or traveling around with us for business trips. They are a great family of believers and our children love, love, love this school!

TCS has exceeded our expectations. We had heard good things and knew this is where we wanted our children to be but we are more than pleased with the results. When you go to a birthday party of 5-year-olds and your daughter is the one spelling "happy" when others can't even read it, you know you have found a great school. Very thankful for great teachers!

As a current parent of two kids at TCS, I am extremely pleased with how the school balances maintaining an accelerated academic program, while at the same time keeping pace with each individual child's learning abilities. Both my kids (as well as their friends who I know) look forward to going to school! My kids will graduate from Texas Christian.

We love Texas Christian. Our family has found "The perfect fit" for us. I know no school is perfect but we love TCS and everything it has to offer. We struggle from time to time to keep up with tuition but TCS is worth it for my children and the office staff is very kind to work out payments with us.

Texas Christian is a great school. You will not be dissatisfied in any way. I know many alumni who are great businessmen and women who love that they graduated from TCS. The Christian values they left with are still with them and now being passed down to their children. Very neat to see.

Texas Christian School has been the BEST move we could have made! I am so happy that my daughter loves school again! She is engaged and actively learning and playing sports. We are so happy!! The public school system is not the place where I want my daughter to be. TCS was so warm and welcoming and even had a breakfast for new parents to answer questions and clarify a few things for us! Super HAPPY!!

Texas Christian brought home two state titles this past year in basketball and track along with singles tennis. TCS had 6 regional math winners, 2 spelling bee winners, first place in Jr. High music, 1st place in Houston Rodeo Art and a lot more!!! TCS is on fire for the Lord, sports, and academics. TCS is amazing and you need to send your children here. Go Tigers!

TCS is a very special place with people who really love the Lord. The school is a family, and the positive energy can be felt in the hallways. The diverse student body makes for a fun and vibrant classroom, and the small class size allows students to participate and stay engaged. If students have questions, their teachers are happy to give their time and energy to see the students succeed. These kids are ready to get out in the world and serve the Lord. WAY TO GO TIGERS!

The teachers are amazing here! They are always willing to go the extra mile to help a child in need. Every child is encouraged to participate in a sport or other extra-curricular activities. Because of the smaller classes, the students get the attention they need and develop life long friendships.

My daughters attended this school for eleven years. My oldest daughter graduated in 2014 as co-valedictorian of her class. She is a straight A student at Oklahoma Baptist University. My younger daughter is a sophomore and excels in the smaller classroom. She has teachers that love her and help her be successful.

We have found our forever school. We have been to a couple other Christian schools in our life and TCS just has that spark that some other schools dont. Its a family, the teachers care, the kids are really good, we have made lasting friendships and we are so glad to be part of the TCS family. Their classes fill fast so enroll quickly to get a spot. We love it!

My boys have never been more excited to go to school. TCS has such loving, caring teachers and you would not believe what students in K-5 are learning. They are already doing multiplication. TCS is an awesome place to be.
