    "My son is in 2nd grade and he loves his teacher and school! This year he has already learned about Middle Eastern, Chinese, French, and Viking history. TPS offers a free drama program after school that he is participating in too. Recently the school added a new science project with rainbow trout that has captured his attention and piqued his interest in science! It's a GREAT school!"

    "TPS HAS changed. My middle/high school kids see it and we do too. I've asked some of our teachers why they all seem so stressed/tense, why the high turnover, teachers leaving abruptly, being fired, but most won't discuss it. A few did. The board and headmaster are trying to build more schools based on TPS and teachers are working ungodly hours to provide curriculum, in addition to their regular work. TPS has wonderful teachers who sound like they work in a sweat shop fearful of being fired if they say anything! TPS students should be the priority, not students at a school that doesn t exist yet. I've asked about our concerns at meetings and was told they are building new schools and this is required. The quality of the academics and rigor is also dropping. Most of my kids' tests are being changed to multiple choice and fill in. This is not classical or rigorous! Even if they take Common Core tests online, the other tests should keep TPS standards. And sadly, my kids tell us the dress code is not enforced because of fear of lawsuits. Didn't we all sign a contract saying we would follow it? Stress, tension, fear, dumbing down? Please, bring back the school we love so much!!"

    "My son graduated from Temecula Prep on May 31st, 2013. His Senior year he faced constant obstacles thrown at him by the staff of Temecula Preparatory School. The disciplinary team at the school targets students by who they hang out with. This school is sexist towards males and constantly makes up different rules to get people into trouble. For example if a boy did something to get in trouble he would get detention for 3 days and more than likely a suspension, but if a girl were to do something they would either get off with one detention or no punishment at all."

    "As a 10+ year TPS "veteran", I also feel well-positioned to speak about the organization as a whole as well as the teaching staff and the changes that are inevitable in a small school. The school leaders have no control over what teachers decide to stay home with their new babies, or what teachers move out of the area because of jobs their spouses have taken, or what teachers resign for personal reasons, but they do have control over moving teachers out who aren't the best fit for the school. I support each of those changes and am happy that our kids aren't forced to have a teacher who no longer truly cares about teaching, but is just there for "a job". The TPS teachers and admin are the hardest working group of individuals one can hope to have and belittling such a great program with anonymous falsehoods is cowardly and just mean. A better use of that passion would be to support your kids' school AND principal. If you have a concern, go talk to that person. I'm sure you will find the experience to be a positive one. Over a thousand kids are driven to the edge of the district each day to learn that it's what INSIDE that counts. Let's show them that we are worth their trust."

    "I am also a parent of two students and a friend to many of the teachers and staff at TPS. I'm not sure what metrics the prior comment is based on, but clearly TPS is not " on a rapid downward spiral". The school is transitioning in a new principal,and anyone who has been a part of any organization during a transition will recognize that change can be a little bit uncomfortable at times. To personally attack the principal and make anonymous and unsubstantiated claims is reprehensible and a bit counter productive. If I were truly concerned about the leadership at the school I would arrange a meeting with the person in question or at least write a letter addressing my concerns, not rant anonymously online. The Executive Director visits the campus frequently, has weekly meetings with staff on campus and daily interactions with them via phone and email so I'm not sure how he could be accused of ignoring the campus. It's also a bit cynical to insinuate some diabolical plot to build a "charter school empire". There is a demand in the area resulting in a waiting list of 1800 students for TPS - how it could be construed negatively that TPS is trying to share the program with more students?"
