We are new to TEECS. Adjusting & transitioning in the 1st few weeks was tough but once my kids got used to the online resource instead of books for homework, they had no problems. There are teachers & staff who respond more promptly than others(as with every other teacher in any school) but all of them are approachable,qualified & many of them are certified. While they do have art,music & gym classes, TEECS is a charter school focused on academic excellence,technical & critical thinking skills. So if your child is more into sports & athletics,TEECS may not be the right school for him/her. They do have after school clubs that my kids love,on top of them being on the township sports clubs,they want to sign up for after school sports clubs. Security is very strict which makes us feel reassured of our kids' safety given the things we see & hear in the news lately. We are very happy with TEECS.Our kids are getting education that exceeds expectations & we feel reassured as for their safety everyday.
