The education at this school seems to be adequate, plus some. But the whole school is geared around raising money for something, everything! More teacher aides, science guy, who by the way is not even credentialed nor does he have a degree, etc. Auctions show the kids that the parent that has the most ...  Read more

We moved to Tijeras Creek in 2010 with a kinder, 2nd and 3rd grader. We were all nervous to start a new school, but were quickly put at ease as each child was welcomed as scholars. The pride of being a TC scholar is evident not only in the children but also in the teaching staff and admin. Every adult ...  Read more

I've been at this school with multiple children from 2007 through the present (and will be here until 2016), during which time the district budget has been cut to the bone - (class sizes went from 20:1 to 32:1). Despite these challenges, the principal, teachers, staff, and PTA have all been amazing! ...  Read more

TCES is a phenomenal school. Motivated, dedicated teachers; an involved and hard-working principal who strives to keep parents informed; and a curricula that keeps kids challenged. Students are called "scholars" here for a reason -- they are all treated as if they can change the world! My daughters ...  Read more

Horrible school. Rude principal. Lost my daughter on the 2nd day of school. Luckily she was in the class where the teacher left her. The 3rd day of class she hit her head, became ill from the head injury and didn't notify me. Also, they blatantly ignored all my daughter's simple medical needs to ...  Read more

TCE is amazing!! My daughter is a 3rd grader and couldn't be happier. At the top of her class, she is an excellent reader, loves math and generally can't wait to go to school everyday. We are so lucky to be at a school where the teachers teach not only to be paid but because they truly love it. Thank ...  Read more

Tijeres Creek is a wonderful school. The teachers are so dedicated and the principal is very involved. There is just the right amount of homework too. We were in a district where the homework was over the top. Here it's not so much that the kids are stressed out but it's just enough. We really ...  Read more

The school was a gem. Now it is a teach to the test factory. Principal is more worried about scores than creating lifelong learners. Supervisors are so out of control that kids aren't allowed to run at recess. Such a shame.

My child just transfered from a local private school. We are so happy with the change, the school is about six months to a year behind the other school on some areas and this has allowed us to make a smooth transfer. So far so good!
