School Reviews

Both of my children graduated from Tri-State Christian School. My son left public school for TSCS in third grade, and my daughter attended kindergarten through 12th grade. This is an excellent school, and I cannot recommend it highly enough! We live north of Dubuque, and it was a 40 minute drive each way to the school. We spent a great deal of time and money for our children to attend school there, and it was the best investment we ever made! Both of our children are now grown. They are dedicated Christians who are very involved in their church. My daughter was so inspired by her experience at Tri-State that she chose to become a Christian school teacher so that she could pass on to other students the love, faith, and quality education she received from Tri-State.
