  • This school has extremelly poor caring qualities. I had the priviledge of viewing first hand that the staff at this school only cares about their paycheck. This is the culture of this school's environment towards the parents, visitors, and unfortunately the students.
    Teachers and paraprofessionals seem to forget that they are the educators end influence in the students informational and behavioral learning. (This is elementary the basis of children just as home is.) When visiting my child for lunch, I viewed Tipps' staff demeaning and talking down at the kids. A stern voice is necessary and punishment, but also educating them of their wrong doing. Talking down to them occured too often,even arguing with the students.
    Teachers at this school are young and the two homeroom teachers for my child had no children of their own and were new to the career. By the end of this last 09-10 school year there were two staff members that I know certainly are no longer at Tipps for the next 10-11 school year. Many of the staff at this school are new including the principle and which caused many disorganized and unprofessional experiences throughout the school year. The front desk staff are very inconsiderate and not very helpful. They are a prime example of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing.

    This school lacks experience, stability and most importantly a true caring quality.

  • tremendous attitudes and wonderful day to day operations. I'm a seasoned educator and weekly volunteer at Tipps and I have observed skilled, dedicated teachers doing what they do best.
