St. Timothy's Lutheran school helped our daughter to become a very confident girl. We started at St. Tim's in Pre-4's, and by the end of the year our daughter was able to read. She continued her wonderful education through 5th grade. Learning computer skills, leadership, music, and art. She started as a shy girl not apt to give her option. By graduation she blossomed to use her voice and speak her option. St. Tim's has prepped her to success in middle school. Thanks St.Tim'a staff!

Sending our son to St. Timothy's will be one of the best investments we ever make. He started in pre-school at 3 and just completed 4th grade. He has excelled academically and scored extemely well against the state and national standards. The new leadership program partnership with Dr. Alan Nelson and KidLead is introducing our son to the character and competency components of ethical leadership while allowing students to practice skills through age appropriate activity. The computer program and partnership with Beyond Technology Education is also equipping him with foundational life skills. His class size of 10-15 students allows the staff to get to know and work with each student, and provides an environment where students can grow and flourish socially. Finally, our son is developing a very real faith and relationship with Jesus Christ. St. Timothy's has built a great culture, and has a tremendous program that helps students with language-based learning differences. The principal and pre-school director are wonderful and caring educators.

St. Timothy's is a wonderful school. First and foremost it instills in the kids a sense of community and belonging, and requires the students to maintain accountability for their actions. The staff is amazing, and are extremely creative and inclusive of the parents to form activities to enhance the traditional curriculum. The school offers impressive facilities and programs, including a computer program (starting in Kindergarten), music, art and physical education. It is also piloting a program called 'Kid Lead' which identifies and fosters leadership traits and how to enhance the types of personalities that make excellent leaders, as well as those that would support the leadership in an auxiliary/supporting role. The additional extra curricular activities are also very supportive of the entire experience. There are numerous events that bring both the school as well as the families together to share in extremely wonderful experiences. The participation of the families in the overall experience is both welcomed and really separates St. Timothy's from other schools.

Our son is in the fifth grade at St. Timothy's, and has attended since pre-school 3's. The best thing about St. Timothy's is the staff. The classroom teachers truly care about the children, and take time for each individual student. The general atmosphere of this school is warm and nurturing. There is a high level of parent involvement. Two other areas are absolutely top rate: the music ( choir ) program has a director who is unsurpassed in the ability to bring out the best in the children; the library program includes an annual 'read across America day,' as well as an annual book faire. St. Timothy's more than met my expectations as an elementary school, both in terms of academics and values. I highly recommend this school.

My wife and I first learned of St. Timothy's Lutheran School through the church. We had fully planned to enroll our two children into public schools. We realized that the school was, in fact, an extension of the church and incorporated all of the values that my wife and I hold dear. After enrolling our first child in pre-school we realized how powerful the commitment was to quality education on the part of the faculty and staff. We also came to understand and appreciate the commitment all the parents shared to each other and to the kids and school faculty. St. Timothy's has proven to be a wonderful environment for our two children. They have been allowed to learn at their own pace in a Christian context that stresses love and respect for all. We truly couldn't be happier with the result. James Moore
