    The mission of TCE 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.

About Our School

  • Tates Creek Elementary is a International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, which offers high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students. This is the final step as our school has joined Tates Creek Middle and Tates Creek High in creating the only K-12 International Baccalaureate Programme campus in the United States. 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.

    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.
