academics

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.

All 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.

Class Sizes

It's impossible to keep this up to date, but here's a general idea of the sizes of the class. You probably need to see this for yourself.

K3 - 19 (with helper)

K4A - 10

K4B - 19 (with helper)

K5A - 18

K5B -18

1st - 26

2nd - 23

3rd - 21

4th - 22

5th - 20

6th - 15

7th - 12

8th - 10

9th - 7

10th - 4

11th - 6

12th - 8

Some high school classes are combined for certain subjects (Bible, History, Choir, for example). Others, like Science, Math and English are not. Others are very small; ie., Calculus has 5 students. We believe in small class sizes; sometimes we go over 20 in 1st through 6th, because of siblings situations. Students also mean income for us (to pay teachers) but we try to keep the right balance.

Class Times

  • Grades 7 - 12 8:00 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.
  • Grades 1-6 8:15 a.m. to 3:10 p.m.
  • K5 8:30 a.m. to 3:10 p.m.
  • K3/K4 8:30 a.m. to noon (afternoon daycare available)
  • College Entrance

    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.
