  • About Tenderloin Community Elementary School

    Tenderloin Community School (TCS) is a unique PreK-5th Grade public elementary school with community resources located right on the school complex. The school is made up of a District Child Development Center for 3 and 4 year olds, the K-5 elementary school, and community resources including a dental clinic. The staff is committed to working with families and utilizing all available resources to provide students with the best integrated program possible.

    The mission of TCS is to create a learning community where teachers, staff, families, community members, and children work collaboratively to foster academic excellence, encourage children to reach their full potential, create critical thinkers through an integrated, hands-on curriculum, and foster joyful learning in an environment that encourages child-centered experiences.
