Two of my children have gone to this school and I pulled them out of there as fast as I could. The principal is not worth a penny. She tried to say it was my child's fault that she was getting bullied. Not to mention that their "beloved" Ms Carpenter gave me the finger when we were at a stop light ...  Read more

I can not say enough about Mrs Carpenter, she goes beyond the call of duty as she is always putting her students and faculty first. She is the greatest

The teachers are wonderful to work with. Mrs. Carpenter is very hard to work for & is very hard to know if you are doing a good job. If you think you are doing a great job, she doesn't go out of her way to let you know. She does care about the students a lot.

Tisinger is a wonderful school with great support. It is in an economically disadvantaged area, and parental support is difficult to find.

Both of my boys have gone to Tisinger since they were in Kindergarten. Mrs. Carpenter became the principal during our 2nd year. She is extermly kind and knows my children by name. She is a great example of a leader. She works well with the teachers to make sure that they have what they need in order ...  Read more

The teacher's and Principal at Tisinger are very qualified and genuinely care about the students. I was very disappointed in parent involvement. Only 3 parents from my son's class bothered to join the PTA. My son learned well in a very structured environment. Tisinger also achieved the rating of 'Recognized' ...  Read more
