Tolson ensures students excel in the basics: reading, writing and math. The school has a guided-reading program that has students work together in small groups and a “reading doctor” who works with children in kindergarten through third grade.
At Tolson, teachers, administrators and students live by the SOAR acronym, which stands for Safe, Organized, Academic and Responsible. This creates an atmosphere of stability, togetherness and excitement about learning.
Tolson’s folklórico is open to students in first through fifth grade and performs quarterly, including a holiday show and end-of-year celebration.
