Teachers College Community School Open Houses

Teachers College Community School is excited to welcome prospective families to TCCS.  TCCS Open Houses provide families with an opportunity to learn about the school's curriculum and philosophy for educating students.  Parents will also learn about the unique partnership between Teachers College and will engage in a Q and A with school leadership and returning families.  Below are dates for our upcoming Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Middle School open houses.
