One reviewer wrote: “We transferred our children from a private school and were pleasantly surprised that the curriculum was more challenging at TA. The teachers are wonderful educators. We had a few issues with bullying and had to contact the office several times because it wasn’t being handled in the class. But other than that, we have rave reviews! My kids love their new school and feel safe.”
Another reviewer wrote: “We love Tierra Antigua. The PTA is more active than any other school that I’ve seen. The school elects and pays for the Eureka Math program which is a much better program than you’ll find anywhere else in APS (the rest use Stepping Stones). There are so many fun events after school to bring the community together. Can’t imagine sending our kiddos anywhere else!”
