My children have or still attending Timbercrest Elementary. This school has always been graded an A school. My children love this school (my 3rd grader entered their Gifted program this year :). Every teacher my children has had, they always speak of them with good remarks. My son (who attended Timbercrest a few years ago) had some difficulty in reading so his IEP staff went above and beyond to ensure that all his reading needs were met (even sent home extra reading materials so we can help him at home). The teachers go the extra effort to "teach" even when they are under constant scrutiny from Administrators to just achieve higher test scores. Bravo to Timbercrest Teachers for doing an excellent job!!!
I am a student who left this school because of one major big problem, but other than that its a great school nice, good kids fun kids big school lots of classes and bus looped and car loops are a bit crowded but overall I'd rate this school a some where around 5 to 10
this school has great staff, teachers and students. The PTA plans wonderful events, teachers are dedicated to making sure that each student gets what they need.
The staff are ridiculous, rude, and seem to not care about their job at all, they are like walking zombies with no sence of humor, very dry personalities!!!!. I have had nothing but issue after issue that are never correctly fixed in a timely manner, but most still linger. I do have to say the past two years my daughter has been pleasantly blessed with great teachers that seem to care about her education...as to why she is doing so well at this point. Also i'd like to mention that the walker/ car rider area in the after noons are a nightmare, it definitly needs to be a little better corrdinated or perhaps expanded.
the kids love the involvement of the entire staff & great teachers! very well protected and kept from uncertain visitors.
I'm a grandparent and retired educator. I observe closely what is transpiring around my grandson's education. I continue to be impressed each year with the dedication of his teachers and the inspiration they give him to achieve. This starts at the Administration level and goes all through the school. People who are unhappy due to no recess need to attend a PTA meeting and let the Administrators explain what is mandated by the State. People who complain about staff yelling, need to find out if their child is listening. During our vounteer time at Timbercrest, we have never experienced anything other than respect and kindness toward children. God bless you all for touching each child's life.
Vice Principal is uncaring, and lacks integrity. Front office staff is rude. However, teachers are excellent. Pick up and drop off procedures are an unorganized nightmare.
Hello, My name is Carolyn and I worked at Trimbersrest Elem. as a ESE resouce Parafrofessional and loved everything about that school from the staff to the children.Icould not have asked for a better place to work.It brought so much joy into my life.Due to things out of my control I had to leave but the momories will be with me forever. Yes my youngest daughter is back from Iraq and ok. Thank you
After my child's first year at Timbercrest I have had to deal with the front office personnel lack personality and at times are even rude to parents and students. I have experienced that first hand. One person will tell you one thing and than the next will say another. The teachers I have dealt with have been very involved with my daughters education. I am sure there can be some improvement on insuring each child gets their educational needs met. However in a public school system students tend to get lost in the classroom and as parents we have to insure we are on top of it.
My child has attended Timbercrest since Kindergarten and although my child has done well my child hasn't been happy since kindergarten. The office staff and teachers seem disconnected. I have had my share of visits and have volunteered on a few field trips and volunteered as well I just haven't felt very welcomed there and the office staff lacks warmth and a greeting. It feels mechanical there. I do like the smaller class sizes. The PTA is not run by its president well at all and the fund raising and the PTA needs a complete overhaul and they need to start over fresh while offering better fundraisers. The year book was more money this year and lacked style. Friendlier staff in the lunchroom would be appreciated as well. The food is awful and recess is a luxury.
My child has attended the gifted program at this school for 3 years, I love the way she is challenged in her studies, each year the teachers my child has had are innovative, challenging and understanding toward the children and relate well to parents concern. School, as most of Florida schools, are overcrowded, adding more and more portables, however, the teacher/student ratios are still pretty low, anywhere from 15-20 students per teacher, and many teachers have assistant and/or volunteer parents in class helping. My only complaints are recess time is limited to students, and Spanish is not available as it is in many other elementary schools, which I feel that in Florida, this is an asset to have available. Other extracurricular activities, such as music and art can also be limited to the students. The staff in the office is not as friendly as I'd like either.
student to teacher ratio is pretty good at Timbercrest. There is quite a few parents taht are seen regularly at the school participating making our school better. Both my children enjoy their teachers in music, art, sports. I would like to see more of what they work on in art. the school parking lot has always been a nightmare from either side of the school the parent loop is on.
Timbercrest Elementary is a great school overall. Lack of communication at the after school program. Even with this I will keep my son at this school.
Excellent academics! PE, music and art departments are strong! PTA is large and very active! Student support goes above and beyond state requirements. VERY happy - I have three children who attend and one who went there from 1st to 5th grades.
My daughter is in the 2nd grade and has been attending Timbercrest since Kindergarten. This is an excellent school and my daughter loves it! The after school care is extremely helpful to my husband and I since we are both working. My daughter has never had any problems at this school and her grades are alway A's and B's. The teachers have also been excellent!
When I was in Elementary school living in Deltona, I went to Timbercrest. This school meant so much to me. Years back, they brought snow for us to play in since half of us students had never seen snow! The teachers really get to know the students. I will always remember TimberCrest.
Overall I am extremely unhappy with this school. My kids don't get recess and come home stressed out from their lack of breaks. Staff is at times rude and sarcastic to both the children and parents. My kids are very unhappy and complain about 'being screamed at all day', and I have witnessed some of the screaming that they are talking about. My kids are learning, but they will never develop a love of learning in this school.
