I love Tuscano. All the teachers are good persons, focus in kids. I have two children and they are very happy an learning a lot.

I agree with the previous post. They focus way too much on their test scores. I see very few teachers who have rapport with their students. ...Maybe it's because they are too busy yacking on their cell phones, which I've seen or too busy chatting it up when they should be watching the kis on the playground. ...  Read more

I am actually thinking of pulling my child from this school. I am not happy with the experience. These young teachers at Tuscano are more Administrators vs. Teachers and focus is 'just' on testing scores vs. 'growing, developing and having a positive learning influence on children'. Principle condesending.
