School Reviews

I have two children at TCS. I have never known a more organized and accommodating school. The school is faith / Christ based, and teaches our children how to live by God's word and the bible. The educational curriculum is second to none. Our kids are far beyond their grade levels in all areas - Reading, Writing, Math, History, Science, Speech, etc. I have been an educator at the college level, and recognize this program as superior in all areas, qualifying it as a top notch WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) accredited school. With that said, I cannot end without mentioning the excellent staff, from Principals Mrs. Drummond and Mrs. Axe on down through the teachers and support staff. The staff is readily accessible to the parents, and encourage the parents to be involved on campus through numerous programs. The staff takes the time to get to know each student and their parents at a personal level, and develop a rapport and trust with all parents, that is valued by all. Respect of the kids leads to respect of their parents by the kids, and that respect resonates across campus. God is present on this campus. If you have any doubt about what I have written, just show up any morning and watch how the day opens. The students walk onto campus, and gather in one of the open recreation areas. The day then starts at 8:30 A.M., with a pledge of allegiance to God and the Bible, followed with the pledge of allegiance to our country and it's flag.....God is truly present on this campus......
