    I have sent three of my children here with plans to send a fourth when he is ready for Kindergarten. I love the small classroom sizes the attention that each child gets not only from their own teacher but from everyone around them. The schools belief in socializing children in positive ways not only with the children in their classroom but also with the other children throughout the school is an amazing thing to experience. Two years after my oldest son graduated I still have children who ask me how he is doing when they see me. My only regret about Tiller is that they are no longer a offering a Middle school Program and there are no charter Middle schools in Carteret County.

    The teachers! They are innovative and of high quality on a very small budget and salary.

    This little Charter school is giving our very small and rural community hope for our children. The professionals that keep this school going are trained in experience based teaching and keep children excited and passionate while learning beyond the basics! I am thrilled to send my son to this school when he is ready and hope it can continue to sustain itself with all the state budget cuts that roll down from the state house.

    As a teacher who has recently interviewed at the Tiller School I can honestly say that I have finally found a school that centers their daily mission around the whole child. Instead of pursuing the highest possible End of Grade Test results they focus on fostering the lifelong learner one who is not only able to succeed academically but able to work alongside his or her peers for a common purpose. My greatest hope is that I can become a part of this school family.

    I have absolutely loved sending my son to this school. The one on one attention he receives has truly propelled him into learning despite his learning delays and disabilities. The only regret I have is that we are moving out of state and won't be able to attend next year

    My daughter has attended the Tiller School grades 1-7. This school has been a blessing for my child. At thirteen my daughter is full of self-esteem and loves her school. The one-on-one attention is extended from the entire Tiller community. Family involvement creates a special atmosphere of community where ownership of the school is shared. The focus of this school is on developing life long learners and every child is treated with respect and encouraged to follow their dreams. The extraordinary history of Tiller academic success is achieved through creative teaching creative learning and social responsibility. The Tiller is a second home where children are loved and encouraged to learn and excel at everything with self-discipline and pride. They create a safe atmosphere; safe to make mistakes safe to explore new ideas and safe to disagree with each other. I only wish that the Tiller School went from Kindergarten through college.
