    "My oldest daughter went to Tavan from preschool through 5th grade and she absolutely loved it there. My second child is currently in 3rd grade there and wouldn't want to go anywhere else. I am hoping that Ms. Serna will be there when my other two start school. Not only do my children get the support that they need while attending the school they still receive it even after they have left. I wouldn't want my kids to go anywhere else because this is a community school and everyone's involvement help shape and support our future leaders."

    "After learning that 5 families disenrolled from Tavan last week to go to a charter school, I feel compelled to write a review about my experience as a Tavan parent. My daughter is in the 5th grade and has been at Tavan since kindergarten. We chose Tavan not just because of their great reputation but also because of all the services they have to offer. We were willing to drive our daughter 10 miles to go to an out of district school knowing that she would be in a safe, supportive and academically challenging environment. Lily's been fortunate to have amazing teachers EACH and EVERY year, a speech pathologist that knows what she's doing and a pro-active principal that doesn't just talk the talk, she truly walks the walk. Ms. Serna has always made time to listen to our concerns and provide support, as have all of Lily's teachers. Tavan's open door policy has allowed for me to show up unannounced to observe in a classroom, help out the teachers and have lunch with my daughter. I have this one amazing child. Where she goes to school every day matters to me. As parents, we don't get do-overs. I'm proud to say that I'll never regret my decision to send my daughter to Tavan."

    "The assistant principal has made this school crumble during the principal's absence. He has no disciplinary or leadership skills. He is a joke to the kids, teachers, and patents but those who hired him were dazzled by his doctorate. All of the best teachers are getting out of this school. I am moving my child next year. I've heard that half of the teachers are leaving next year too. Unfortunately, Tavan's best days have come and gone thanks to the heads of the district who hire incompetent administrators and promote open enrollment. All the smart kids are moving to Veritas, Hopi, Christ Lutheran, or ANLC. My son and I will do the same."

    "Taven is jewel among schools in the area. Forgotten by those who choose the private route, or the more glitzy Hopi a few blooks away. The teachers are Phenomenal! The staff is amazing. The parents care. Even when my child was just in Pre-K, the staff took the time to know his name, his quirks, and watched out for him. I cannot express how delighted I am that this is our neighborhood school. And a school with an A+ rating at that? Thank you Tavan teachers and staff for going out of your way on a daily basis to make this place such a wonderful learning environment for my chidlren!"

    "My daughter started kindergarten a few weeks ago, and so far I am impressed by the amount of support the school seems to have for the success of the school including other parents. This is our first child going to school so I don't have any other schools to compare it to, but so far it's going great, she loves it, I love the schedule. My only concern is that the KG classes are across the street from the main school and they have to walk across the street to go to lunch, computer classes, etc. I know there are a lot of teachers on hand when they do this, but it's taking me a little longer to get used to the idea. The school is in a beautiful location and the school itself is beautiful. I can't wait for what this upcoming year brings."
