    It is the best "Southside" school in Santa Fe. The teachers are experienced. The students are well prepared for ant school they transfer to, including SF Prep and ATC.
    The music program and music teacher s are the best fpr elementary students in Santa Fe, if not in the state.
    The community values the arts, and the after school program offerings are amazing and FREE: Jazz band French, cooking, sign language, chess, jazz history, future cities, and many more.

    Love TTCS, all 3 of my children have been here since Pre K and we love it. The teachers are so warm and focused on each and every student. So many programs after school for them to experience extra curricular activities.
    My kids are already on the right track for College
    This school has good environment and good teachers. Staff are nice and helpful. Out of town location which is nice that you don't need to drive in traffic.
