Parent: We came from another school to Tanque Verde and I can tell you first hand that this school is amazing. It offers many specials to the students and offers after school activities to foster growth and learning. The teachers are kind and the new principal is well liked, has great leadership and actually spends time getting to know the students. We see her out walking around and checking on students daily. She even came to read to classes. Students that need support are given support. There are two nurses on campus, a school psychologist, MANY reading specialists/assistants, a community based special education department, speech and the list goes on and on. Parental involvement is amazing and the Parent Teacher Group leadership is top notch. The campus is beautiful and the climate is very welcoming. There have been big changes and Tanque Verde is an excellent school!

Parent: This school is fantastic! It's a TUSD neighborhood school, but it's also a "Parent's Choice" school so you can enter a lottery to have your out-of-district child placed here.
Teachers here are SO caring. There is a large group at this school with hearing impairments, so sign language is used throughout the school. This means everyone learns sign language! It also means they are trained to deal with "differences" in the students. They understand different behavior and don't make kids feel like they are doing something wrong when they need to do something else to be able to pay attention.
Parents are very involved at this school, in fact a large number work at the nearby University of Arizona, so there is an emphasis on the importance of education.
Classes are organized by 3-year cohorts: K,1,2 are together, 3,4,5 are together: nice for consistency and expectations. The middle schoolers 6-8 are organized into 4 groups like Hogwarts - there's even a sorting ceremony on the first day.
