Topanga Elementary Charter School Reviews

This is my son’s home school but because is he special needs, they can not accommodate him. After I had already conducted an IEP before leaving his last school, TECS insisted they take another IEP to place him to another school. Not only was this unnecessary but they messed up his IEP by stating he was still in diapers (he was 5 and fully capable of taking himself to the bathroom by himself), taking many BII minutes away from his already approved minutes and leaving out a lot of the new update on the previous IEP. I don’t think they cared how much hell they screwed up his IEP. Also, had 2 disgruntled neighbors who’s children were taken out of that school simply because their child was different. For a community who is supposed to be supportive and caring, it starts with the school so the school needs to change and inject the proper staff to educate the whole community. This school needs to change. Also lacks diversity big time!

While the location is nice, the classrooms are old and in much need of upgrade. The teachers are hit or miss. Some have been there too long, and should really not be teaching. They way they speak to children is highly inappropriate. They have a fundraising body, TEP. They ask for hundreds of dollars for their Giving Fund, and then expect you cough up hundreds and hundreds more are small fundraisers for the year. My child needed to be tested for dyslexia, they told me it could take up to a year.
