I attended T.L.Marsalis for several years. I would have to say they're teaching skills are RIGHT ON POINT they know how to break it down so the students can understand it. I give MAJOR kudos to T.L.Marsalis! Without they're teaching i wouldn't be a top scholar and a professional writer while i'm only a FRESHMAN in highschool.

No doubt the best school that my children have ever attended. I find it hilarious to read negative reviews about this school. My wife and I are finding it difficult to move to Cedar Hill until our daughter completes her elementary grade levels. Bottom line Great School Great Staff and I am blown away to find a school so hands on with the students and parents. Not to mention Webster doesn't have enough verbs to describe Ms. Richardson (AWESOME!!) So allow me to go out on a limb and say this if you have any ISSUES with this school { IT'S-YOU}.......

Both my daughters attend this school, we moved here from another city and I was told enrolling my kids in Dallas ISD was a bad idea. I have found this school to be great so far. My husband and I are excited we moved in the district of TL Marsalis. As mentioned in a post from a previous parent, Kimberly Richardson is a great principal we always see her in the halls interacting with the students and teachers. We feel that our children are being challenged in a way they have never been challenged before. I have not experienced any rude teachers or administrative staff. I can say my kids teachers are very direct when it comes down to school work and homework in which I'm the same way at home. I'm glad we gave TL Marsalis a chance. GREAT SCHOOL!
