As a parent, I like the school, the dedicated staff, and the Spanish immersion program, but the early start time (7:35am) is brutal. Our mornings are rushed and miserable. I fantasize about switching schools in order to get more sleep and maintain sanity. However my child seems to like the school, although she isn't getting enough sleep or drinking enough water during the school day.

This is an AMAZING school! I am a parent of two children who are both in the Spanish Immersion program. My children are thriving and LOVE going to school. The principal, teachers and entire community feel united. Everyone is working together to create the best possible environment and experience for the kids. The school is forward thinking in creating and implementing a maker space for all of the students to enjoy. Incredible school!!

TES is a community. I'm sad to say we're moving on, and we will miss it. Over the last nine years my two sons have had 12 different teachers, all of whom were exceptional. We've known two principals, both of whom balanced the business of the school and the education if its students with skill and grace. Both principals frequently stood in front of the school in the morning, greeting each student (400+) by name. School-wide assemblies focused on individual character and leadership development skills each month. Faculty members were universally proactive in response to students' challenges and achievements. Older and established students mentor younger children and recent arrivals. Parental involvement was astonishing - both PTO and casual volunteering.

It has been an amazing place for my children to thrive. They are in the Spanish Immersion program and it is so neat to see them learning Spanish while at the same time excelling in English!
