The school is absolutely amazing. I was in the graduating class of 2003. I am now moving on to Suncoast (7th in the nation) for IB. Without Timber Trace i would not be where i am today. The teachers are wonderful and the curriculum put the students well above state standards.
From a interns point of view: excellent teachers, unlimited resources, high percentage of parent involvement. Average teacher student ratio 20/1.
I think that the academics in this schools are one of the top tens in the county & am very happy with the staff & teachers of the school. My daughter has vome a long way & I hope that my little child will recieve the same. The availability of music, srt, and other activites are great. The only thing that I wish that they did have is soccer for a sport. I think that soccer is a very good game for stress, & any knid of anger. The level of the parents that are involved in their children at this school is enormous! but I wish that they had a bit more sports activities.
Timber Trace Elementary teaches to the FCAT testing. They are not interested in your child as a person to help them grow or nurture. Most of the parents do their own child's homework and no one says a thing about creativity. pe/ music/gym/art are on rotations schedules and not given every week. Focus is on gaining money for test scores.
I have been very happy with the level of committment shown to the students by the teachers and administration of Timber Trace Elementary. I do have a concern regarding the ESE or Exceptional Student Services department at Timber Trace.
Great School! My children loved this school. Like any school, there are some burnt-out teachers, but all in all the teachers are happy to be at Timber Trace. Save your private school savings and use it after they graduate from Timber Trace.
This school is a great school both through involvement and academically. The quality of academics here is grade A and the faculty are more than willing to work with parents. Students are offered all aspects of music, art, sports (for elementary), and other programs. The aftercare program is excellent, affording students to take advantage of different 'clubs' in areas of interest (tennis, art, karate, etc.) Parent involvement is top notch. The Boy Scouts of America also have a troop that meets this school and is involved in several areas.
When I move to the palm beach gardens I did it thinking of my children.Schools in south florida are just not good at all.The teacher dont care and they only treat your children in a good way and care about them if you volunteer. Otherwise they are just dont care or they wont be nice to them.I think this is so wrong, teachers should be teachers because they love children ,because they want to help them be the best that they can be.Not just dumpt homework and parents can teach them.My child that is in kindegarden comes home sad.
Although the school is A rated and 5 star rated, I am not that impressed with the school as a whole. I would say that there is nothing so bad that I would pull my child out, but I am not very impressed with quite a few of the teachers and the PTA involvement. The school is old and needs alot of work. Some of this will be done this summer so we will see. I am just disappointed if this is one of the best schools that Palm Beach County has to offer.
Timber Trace is a well run school with a caring faculty,organized administration and excellent support staff.The concept of 'team' comes to mind as an overall description. Best of all students seem to enjoy going!
Great school- academic programs are excellent. Dress Code is helpful.
My experience with T. Trace began with 3rd grade in the gifted program. I was happy with most teachers that taught gifted especially Mr. Makoul, 5th grade teacher. He's great, very interested in his students. Unfortunately music and art programs are lacking in substance due to county funding. There are no real athletic programs here either, again due to funding. Lots of parent involvement. In my opinion, it is basically a good, safe,and nurturing school.
This school is far superior to local private schools. Ultra high-end neighborhoods feed into Timber Trace and the teachers want to work here. Exceptional writing skills, accelerated reading and extra math supplements are standard. We have far more resources than can be listed briefly. This is the most dedicated group of parents around!
Very good teachers overall, nice environment, very organized school, alittle crowded for kindergarten but very nice in other grades.
I have found the school to be very unsupportive in helping with my son's education.
The teachers are wonderful here. More parents need to volunteer in the other classes. The gifted program is exceptional and we are overflowing with volunteers. I wish they offered instruments in 5th grade and not just choral but the music teacher is doing great with over 950 kids...she needs a helper!Food is awesome, love the uniforms! Highly recommended.
My experience for the last three years, has been wonderful.The staff at this school is far superior to any school i have delt with in the past. They truely care about 'their' kids!
This school Is excellent. The teachers truely care about their students. Timber Trace is a great school to learn. I would reccommend Timber Trace to any parent.
