We are finishing our first year at TCES and it has been a phenomenal experience. I was nervous about transferring him to TCES because of the negative reputation it's had in the past, but I have been nothing but impressed. We've had a wonderful, experienced teacher (Mrs. Walker) who has done a great job meeting my child's academic needs. My child is in the Enrichment Program and has loved Mrs. Tofani because she supports his creativity and imagination. The school's guidance counselor, Mrs. Coleman, is always supportive when my child drops by to talk to her. I admire the leadership from Principal Collins and I am impressed with his calm and caring nature. I have enjoyed all of the activities hosted by the school for parents and children- PTO, College and Career Day, Family Fun Night, student Art Show, and more. Trace Crossings is a gem and I am thrilled that we have two more years there!
