Our mission is to empower life-long learners through rigorous instruction to achieve high levels of learning, respect, and understanding as they prepare for roles in the local and global community. TCE uses standards-based grading that provides an accurate and in-depth picture of our students’ progress toward proficiency on the standards at each grade level.

Tates Creek Elementary was built in 1963 as the initial phase of the county's only three-school complex, which includes Tates Creek Middle School and Tates Creek High School. The elementary building was renovated in 1988, and the latest makeover was completed in mid-2014. We also house a Healthy Kids Clinic, which provides many services for students during the school day.


What makes our school special

Tates Creek Elementary is a candidate school for the Primary Years Programme and is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These schools share a common philosophy and a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students. This is the final step for our school to join Tates Creek Middle and Tates Creek High in creating the only K-12 International Baccalaureate Programme campus in the United States.

We also have developed a strong partnership with Southland Christian Church that focuses on tutoring, mentoring, basic needs, one-time events and teacher encouragement. More than 100 volunteers provide direct or indirect support to our students, families and staff.
