Tahoe Expedition Academy Ratings & Reviews
I recently attended TEA's holiday concert with close friends whose children attend the school. It was a special evening and clearly demonstrated the fondness parents and children feel for this school. The obvious bonds between teachers and students is like nothing I ever experienced in school. Students of all ages and grades interact with each other and give the feeling of a big family. Children usually don't get too excited about going to school, but it's easy to see why TEA students eagerly look forward to school days.
Our son loves going to school - what more could we ask? The kids are inquisitive, and full of life and confidence. Teachers and staff are awesome, the culture is positive and enthusiastic. The program is very academic; the expedition approach enhances the academic aspect, rather than distracting from it. So happy we found this school.
What can I say to sum up the magical experience of learning, character building and adventure that my three children experience each and every day at TEA. The teachers and staff are some of the most over-qualified, fabulous and loving individuals that I have ever known in my life. I see a difference in my children every day. They hop, skip, jump and sprint their way out the door each morning with the truest, most genuine unbridled enthusiasm and love for their school. This sure was not the experience I had growing up in large traditional brick and mortar schools in the east coast. So, to sum up this school in a couple of words, I would call it awe-inspiring. This is the place where I wish I could have gone to school. Thank you TEA. You are loved, admired and adored by so many. Thank you for all that you do for our children each and every day to be better human beings, to learn hands-on, to thoroughly absorb academics and to teach our children through adventure to give love back to the world that so loves us unconditionally. There are simply no words to express our gratitude for this school. You nourish our hearts, minds, bodies and souls and we could never even begin to reciprocate to you all that you give to us.With so much love,The Allsop-Long Family
My child feels valued, included, and is coming home excited. He is stoked to go to school everyday. When at home, he is constantly learning more and sharing with us the tidbits he's picking up and proud of his new knowledge. The outdoors part is icing on the cake. The outdoor activities are giving him confidence, camaraderie, and mindfulness. The parents and community are very welcoming too.
This is not just a school it is a community of teachers, students and parents who share a vision of what a great education should be. Students are not just learning in a room. The teachers at TEA bring learning to life by taking students into the field to understand the world around them. These trips into the field are not just adventures they are experiences that give students the academic and character skills they need to thrive as learners and leaders. TEA has highly qualified teachers who use best practices. Please read the bio page on the school's website. You will be impressed to see teachers who are not only academics but survivalists, athletes, adventurers, academics, scientists, and professional artists. At TEA, teachers help guide students to think critically and become leaders in their school and their greater community. I wouldn't want anything less for my child. This school is growing and moving and I am happy to be a part of that transition.
