Terrible School I don't feel like my child is getting the knowledge he needs to prepare for the next school year. After evaluating this for the last three years, I think it's time to let someone know. Some of the programs and teaching methods are just not effective. I was told this by the principal, but it was the next school year before they changed it. I went to TCES as a child and it's just not what it use to be. I feel TCES is failing my child. Please look into this. Thank You
