Huge fan of Tyler. It’s as good as any DC elementary school and in many ways better. You can’t beat Tyler and the Cap Hill family.
This is the worst school I have ever sent my child to. It is so bad that I felt like kicking myself everyday she had to be there. The staff is horrible. There is not a care for children or the learning environment. The school is DIVIDED. There are two sides to this school. There is Spanish Immersion, and Arts Integration. It is more than apparent to see that the Spanish immersion children are definitely treated like the cream of the crop. Even the difference in classroom is unbelievable. Do not come to this school believing that you will enjoy your stay because you won't . Unless you enjoy the fact of having modern day segregation.
This school as so much to Offer! When my twins first started going to this school One of my twins had a very bad speech disorder They help her It build her confidence And her self-esteem And I love this school.
Started Tyler after being told it was great for autism. Fact is, at preK level, there is ONE awesome teacher in the autism classroom but there is totally disfunctionality with the administration and supporting special education outside of the self-contained sped classroom. My child's academics were far advanced when he came into the school and due to very inexperienced staff, poor sped coordination, and a lack of dedicated to meeting the general education students individually where they are, it has been a very bad first educational experience. He has learned nothing and even unlearned things in some specific cases. Too much focus on behaviors for 3yr olds when more classroom management and academic rigor is greatly needed. Spanish Immersion and parent involvement is the best thing going at Tyler. Polite Piggies works pretty well for us as well. Traditional program is nothing special. Average at best. Total lack of communication with parents on what is happening with your child in class. No real progressive strategies being employed at all. Teacher had high absenteeism too.
