We moved here from out of state and my daughter began fourth grade at Timnath. Another student befriended her the first day and she had a play date that same week. She's since met many friends. She also has music and art, something she never had in our previous school district due to lack of funds. In music, she is learning acoustic and electric guitar, piano, as well as other instruments. She loves her teachers. They are kind, sweet and care about the kids. Best experience we've had at a school and my daughter has attended schools in three states in her young life.

Our students at Timnath receive an outstanding education from very innovative teachers and staff who exceed at teaching above core standards. Our school offers a "community atmosphere that you won't see at many large of the larger elementarys in our area.

I teach at Timnath, but I am also the mom to 2 young kids. When we moved to Fort Collins, we researched schools and boughtmour house in the area where we wanted to send our kids. If I had known of Timnath and of the principal, Lori Sander, I would have chosen Timanth in a heartbeat. In addition to their e,phases on science, tech ology, engineering and math, this school is filled with innovative teachers who stop at nothing to meet the needs of their students. The hands on approach to learning and the willingness and talent the teachersnhave to differentiate, makes this school the place to be in the 21st century.

I have 2 kids in this school (one is going into 1st grade, the other into 3rd), and I have been very pleased with the teachers, curriculum, and principal. The school really has that special 'family' atmosphere.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
