    This is a very small school and is in a much better location that it was previously located. Our teacher is always available to answer any question or concern we may have. My child greatly enjoys his days at Tekoa and no longer feels overwhelmed in an overcrowded school. The director on campus is attentive and willing to arrange services to ensure that students are reaching their academic potential.

    My grandson attended Tekoa Orange for 4 months. During this time he screamed and begged to not be brought to school he was 4. We soon learned the "teacher" hit PREK kids with a "whipping stick" and allowed bullying to run rampant. The teacher was the biggest bully. I would NOT recommend sending ANY child to this school it is horrible.

    I started my son with Tekoa during the 3rd six weeks. I noticed a complete turn around with his attitude toward school. Tekoa teaches a child to have respect for themselves as well as others and promotes self esteem which is greatly needed in the world today. the teachers or caring and continually keep you informed about your child's progress. The teachers work with the parents to create a team effort for learning with your child. the classes are smaller and give more detailed attention to your child. I have recommended this school to other family members for their children and they are also sending their children for this incoming year. I only wish I had started my son at the beginning of the year last year. I am looking forward to the new year.
