These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.  Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 

Deuteronomy 6:6-7

At Tacoma Baptist Elementary, we are committed to helping students grow academically, spiritually, and socially. Our academic program provides a strong educational foundation in core subjects – math, reading, language arts, science, and history – along with a variety of enrichment opportunities throughout the elementary grades - music, computers, physical education, and art.
With small class sizes, TBS teachers get to know their students and use a wide range of instructional methods to meet their individual learning needs. Elementary students are nurtured spiritually in daily Bible classes, weekly chapels, and a Biblical worldview that permeates every subject and lesson. Students have regular opportunities to live out what they’re learning – loving and serving others through local and global mission projects.
Students at Tacoma Baptist Elementary learn in a safe and nurturing environment, where caring teachers desire to see students grow as individuals according to God’s design. Expectations are set and behavior is managed based on God’s Word in order to help students to develop Christ-like character.
