We believe in strong academics.
And we feel a little rigor won't kill any student. In fact, in a day of lower academic standards, rigor is a good thing, as long as the student can have a balanced life.
Most of our teachers have masters degrees or are in pursuit of a masters. Two staff members hold a couple of masters degrees. A graduate degree does not necessarily equal a great teacher, but it does show our committment to expanding our staff horizons so our students are well prepared for college.
Typically, long term TBS students taking the ACT College Entrance Exam will score -- on average -- a 24 composite score. This is above average for college bound students; 20 is the national average. The key to a great ACT score is rigor and taking the most difficult classes.
