    TJL is a nice school however the student ratio to childen and teacher is 28 1. I beleive there should be more teachers assistants so the students do not "get lost" in class!!

    I Love TJL because my kids had GREAT grades and the teachers teach the kids well. They may be a bit strict depending on your teacher my kids have had an OUTSTANDING year in TJL

    I love TJL because it is a small personal school where every single teacher my son had was fantastic. His second grade teacher even invited the whole class to her wedding. The kids are treated with sensitivity and consistency. There are many fun after school activities and imaginative events. The quality of education is excellent; the curriculum is challenging but not out of reach. My son really grew as a student at TJL!

    TJL is a plce where all of the children make life long friends while learning. The principle is wonderful and fosters a program where respect is a must and no bulying is tolerated. The teachers go above and beyond for the students and you see so many happy faces there. It is a great place to be.
