    "After three years of struggling with administrators and teachers at Crockett Elementary I decided to change everything in my and my daughters life. First I hired a top notch tutor (Lee Anne Harper, one of the best tutors I have had the chance of meeting), and see a different nuerologist, Dr. Seals in San Antonio). My daughters tutor managed to take her from first grade to third grade reading level (in less than three weeks). Her new physician told me everything that her second grade teacher said she had was wrong. Her tutor asked me if I knew about Texas Prep school. I decided to check it out, and boy am I glad I did! She was right the school was a great change for Lauryn! Caring teachers and staff, tutoring from Sylvan tutoring service, and an emphasis on God, Country and being a good citizan has made her a totally different child. No more bullying (and I might say a teachers kid was bullying her at Crockett Elementary School). This is the only exemplarary school in San Marcos Texas for a reason. They really do a great job at teaching children!!!!"

    "My child has flourished at the Early Learning Program at the Mitchell Center. The teacher (Ms. Griffin) is the best Pre-K teacher I've seen. She is nurturing without being condescending. She lays out the rules (age appropriate), and holds the kids accountable. She is fair, loving, and knows how to turn any behavior issue into a learning opportunity without demeaning the child. She talks to them like they are real people, and promotes "good choices". My child has learned so much at this school. The Director runs a tight ship, and is always on site and available to talk with parents. There has been some disorganization and miscommunication at times, but I think this is due to growing pains (1st year for the Mitchell Center location). The student /teacher ratio is also excellent. My child's class has about 15 kids, with 1 main teacher and always at least 2 assistant teachers at all times. The meals are standard public school fare, but if you want to send a healthier lunch with your child, they are fine with that. I can not speak to the main TPS campus, but the Mitchell Center is great."

    "This is not only a school, but a true second home to my kids and I trust every member of the staff that they will take care of them just as I do!!! Love that it is so different from the public school setting."

    "My son and daughter love going to school! Their reading and writing levels have improved tremendously and they are both more confident in all subject areas. TPS also did really well on last year's TAKS scores and the teachers & students are working really hard to do it again this year.This school also offers awesome electives like drama, journalism, and art which are a plus to their enrichment and success in school. It is a part of the Boys & Girls Club which offers a GREAT afterschool program until 6:30 p.m.(a plus for keeping my kids safe while I'm still at work) and they offer a homework help program with the Sylvan Learning Center.This school is the best!"
