a minute ago-EditI went to Tucson Country Day for 4 years, while I was there half the teachers didn''t seem to care about the students they didn''t favor and the other half left. The administration/student counseling area never really looked into issues and always assumed the worst out of students that they didn''t know or favor. I also notice that a good chunk of the 5 star reviews where from students who are the admins children or favored by most teachers. The students could get away with just about anything that involved bulling/ harassment, While the teachers who care are great and there are several hidden gems at TCDS and some teachers are top notch, don''t send your kids here

I have had children at TCDS since it opened in 2000. We loved it then and we still love it today. We plan to keep our youngest children there until they graduate from 8th grade. The teachers are dedicated, caring and kind. The administration is responsive and easy to work with. My children love the extra classes they get to take - art, technology, physical education, music and Spanish. There are plenty of after school activities, some are sports oriented like basketball, soccer, softball, volleyball and football. Other activities include drama club, choir, karate, garden club, Roots and Shoots, National Junior Honor Society, student council, jump rope...the list goes on. We love the large, outdoor campus - in addition to their classroom, students have access to a covered activity center, playgrounds, a huge grass field, basketball courts and lots of room to walk around. I've been involved in the Student Parent Association and have been asked - as many parents have - to volunteer for all kinds of school activities: in class volunteering, field trips, special functions, etc. It's a great school and we can't say enough about it.

TCDS has an EXCELLENT academic program. The school focuses on individual student achievement and manners and respect. Students are offered specialty programs including art, music, Spanish, technology and PE. Each of these programs has a dedicated teacher. The school participates in an after school athletics program with other charter schools. Students in 5th-8th grade can tryout for softball, volleyball, basketball and soccer (girls) and football, basketball and soccer (boys). The school is located on a beautiful 10-acre facility. Parent involvement is high - parents volunteer in class rooms, help out with on-campus programs and have a very active student-parent association. We've had children at the school since it opened in 2000 and have been very pleased with the teachers, administration and staff.

This school is not what it use to be. The current administration is running into the ground and no one seems to be stopping them. It is a shame.
