Since 1972, our focus has been on placing children at the center of all that we do. As our 50th Anniversary year comes to an end, we take great pride in all that we have accomplished together. While we remain committed to pushing boundaries and fostering innovation, we also cherish the principles set forth by our founder five decades ago. Collaboration has been at the core of our philosophy since the beginning. We recognize that our achievements would not be possible without the dedicated faculty, parents, and friends of TCS. We extend our heartfelt thanks for yet another remarkable year together.

Field Day is more than just fun and games! It’s a day for celebrating the connections we have made throughout the year. Congratulations to the 8th graders for their big win against the staff in a volleyball game and to the strongest Prek classes we have ever seen for their victory against the teachers in an epic tug o war takedown.

Students experienced the geometric nature of viruses in virtual reality with Dr. Arthur Olson from Scripps Research. The VR simulation is designed to teach students about the symmetry of viruses and how researchers use this knowledge to create vaccines and eradicate disease. In the simulation, the students were challenged to identify three fold and five fold symmetry in icosahedral shaped viruses and design their own viruses as a way to model the symmetry. This was a unique opportunity for TCS students as they were the first group of middle school students to participate in the simulation.

Kindergarten has been having so much fun with dinosaur artifacts from the Natural History Museum and decided that they should prepare their very own classroom museums. They created souvenirs and shared some of their new knowledge with the preschool classes and their learning buddies. They were quite the dinosaur experts and it was a proud moment for them all!
