We love Tumbleweed!! It’s been a great school so far and a really homey feeling
With the leadership of Mrs. Russell and her team, this school has become an awesome community school. My son is in Kindergarten and absolutely loves school. He is proud to be a Tiger and He's motivated to go every day - and most importantly- loves his Kindergarten teacher. The school offers all three specials (music, art, PE) as well as computer lab. The school also offers free breakfast and lunch. We never have to worry about the nutrition. There is a big emphasis on anti-bullying and showing everyone kindness. We are so glad we chose Tumbleweed over the other area schools.
This school has made great strides over the last several years. The teachers for the most part are amazing. The music teacher should probably move on though, the way she is so hot and cold and the kids never know if they are her friend or going to get yelled at. The principal is ok, not the best. The front office staff has improved immensely. The PTA is doing their best. I think there really needs to be more parents out there that care and want to help their children succeed. So if you are looking at this school as an option - The teachers are great and the school is good. Just get involved. Be a part of the PTA (as cliche as that is), even if it is just to volunteer at 1 event, or just receive the emails, and stay in contact. We as parents are as big of a part of their education as the teachers are.
My son started kindergarten this year, and I have been really happy with the school, the staff, and the teachers. My son comes home with a homework packet with around 2 worksheets to complete per day, along with some reading and sight words. I'm amazed at how much he is learning, and how enthusiastic he is about it. His teacher is amazing!! He couldn't have asked for a better teacher. The school has a very active PTA and Site Council that are constantly organizing fun events. They even have cross-country for the kids from kindergarten age. The principal, Mrs. Russel is a wonderful lady that has always been friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this school, and am very happy that I decided to put my son into this school.
