excellent school – My son will starting his second year (8th grade) in the middle school at TDS in August. The academic standards are high, the teachers are top notch and the students are very accepting and supportive of one another. This is an amazing school with dedicated staff and lots of family involvement.
low enrollment, financial trouble – This school does have a nice faculty and staff - no one can argue with that. Classes here are TOO small with lots of enrollment troubles -- can be difficult for kids to find social circle (for example, some classes may have only 4 girls, etc). A lot of people wonder if this school will survive much longer. It seems to be on very shakey ground.
What school should be! – TDS offers a full and rich curriculum characterized by challenging academics, meaningful learning opportunities in specials (Spanish, Art, PE, Drama, Science Lab, and Technology) and an emphasis on the development of problem solving skills. Administration, faculty, and staff are genuinely interested in getting to know students and families. The school emphasizes respect for self and others. TDS offers an interesting and diverse selection of after-school activities.
An Amazing School You Wish You Had Gone To! – Favorite Things: The buddy program with the older kids mentoring the younger ones, hot home made school lunches, 3 days of active gym per week, weekly Spanish from grade K, a specialized science teacher as well as a "technology" teacher (aka... computers!). Specialized art and drama art. All in dedicated class rooms!
We have been at Triangle Day School for 3 years. Notice I say "we". Actually our daughter is the student but I say "we" because this is truely a family environment and a community. This school is without a doubt a hidden secret and the best balance of excellent scholastics and a warm loving enviroment. I can honestly say that my child absolutely loves school and learning. She loves her teachers and her class mates. She is nurtured and hugged as well as taught decipline and respect.
TDS is Great! – As a parent I couldn't be happier. Everyday my son (3rd grade) looks forward to school and comes home happy. He is challenged academically and learning at the pace that works great for him. We receive an excellent value from TDS for the reasonable tuition that we pay. TDS is committed to the education of boys and girls by truly focusing on the unique attributes of each child and by creating a dynamic sense of community. TDS emphasizes responsibility and the never-ending reach for academic excellence. I understand that they recently scored in the 10% of private schools in the US. No other school in the Triangle can touch the combination of academic excellence and value.
User review by leachman – This was a wonderful, caring learning environment for my son. I am impressed with the quality of instruction, sense of community and joy I see in the children daily.
dedicated parent – I have had children at TDS for the last 7 years and I have been overwhelmingly pleased with their education. I chose TDS because of the small class size, emphasis on academics and strong emphasis on respect for others and property. After becoming a TDS parent I found the school to have a solid base if parent involvement and support. I know most of the families at the school. In a city such as Durham, TDS is one of the few places that still has the community "neighborhood school" feel to it. I've never been dissappointed with my choice.
User review by carterm – We have been a TDS family for four years. Our son has thrived in a learning environment that is small, nurturing and meets all his needs. We could not be happier with our decision. We love that parent involvement is not only welcome but encouraged.
Amazing, nurturing Durham K-8 – Sinc I moved to Durham from Atlanta 4 years ago, I have been enhanted with Triangle Day School. Parents are very involved. Academics are solid. Teachers are caring. Each child is truly treated with the respect due to every individual--with their strengths and weaknesses. This school does what others only talk about!! Best kept secret in the Triangle.
