We love this school! My children recently completed Kinder, second and fourth grades. They all had amazing teachers with excellent communication. I felt I was involved in all their successes and struggles. My children were able to participate in lunch time violin lessons, art, chess club, GATE, student council and one of my children was involved in the magical castle learning center.
This school has some great teachers, however, there are also many who are not so great. There are little to no additional activities, no PE for lower grades. My daughter has had problems with reading for over 3 years and was just tested. Once we got the test results, it still took over 2 months for her to be placed in the appropriate "literacy group." There is a huge bullying problem at this school and though many parents have complained, it still is rampant. The principal tries but is very ineffective.
My son has attended Timber Point the last two years. His teacher the first was absolutely fantastic - she was an excellent teacher and very communicative - we all loved her. The experience this year has been the exact opposite - just a plain bad teacher and non-communicative we are not the only parents that have had problems with this teacher. The principal and others at the school are great to work with but, unfortunately they are far too tolerant of poor teachers.
I have two kids in this great school, the teachers are superb and both of my kids are doing well academically. Parents are well involved, safe environment and I appreciate Mr. Burnright, approachable and visible around school. I am very happy where my kids are and cant wait for my lil one to be there soon!
I love this school! My kids are happy here! I love the new parking lot. It really makes pick up and drop off so much easier and safer for the several families that walk each day. The teachers are wonderful. The principal is out on campus talking to parents and kids every day. This is a great place.
I think Timber Point is a great school. I have two daughters, k and 1 grade. They are both excelling and thriving in the academic environment that is provided there. I'm not sure what the previous parent review (dated January 29, 2009) is basing his/her assessment of the school having low academic level. If they are new to California, they should check the other school districts in the area and compare them to Timber Point. We were in another school district for about 4 months last year and that is enough for me to gauge that Timber Point is well above that districts' level of academic excellence.
