I have had at least one child at TRES since 2005. It has only gotten better over the years. I have seen two progress through middle and high school in honors and AP courses well ahead of their peers and I credit the foundation they received at Timothy for that. Our new principal Worthy who replaced our beloved principal is a "worthy" successor as a former TRES teacher for many years. We will be so sad to leave this year. It is a very special place!

Our children have attended Timothy since 2009, and we could not be happier about their experiences. They have had amazing teachers each year who not only have guided them through a challenging academic environment, but also supported their emotional and social development. The school leadership is top notch and readily available to assist students, parents and teachers. There is an incredible amount of parent involvement in all aspects of the school -- from volunteering in classrooms to supporting fundraisers and attending after-school events. The school's growth in recent years is a true testament to its success as more and more families move to the district to be a part of the exciting things happening at Timothy Road. We are proud to be CCSD and blessed to be at this school.

I love the ability and willingness to individualize at this school. I have a child who went through Timothy and is now at Athens Academy and he was very much ahead when he arrived. He has made Honor Roll every semester and has straight As. I totally credit Timothy for his preparation. It is a wonderful school!

I love Timothy! Great teachers, great atmosphere, my son is very happy here. The level of education is high and the students seem very happy there!

We have been very pleased with the education our children are receiving at Timothy. The teachers have been excellent. We are particularly impressed with the Spectrum (gifted) and Advanced Math programs. Excellence is encouraged at Timothy!

Timothy is a wonderful neighborhood school for Athens. We have been so happy with the education our daughter has received there. The teachers and staff are top-notch. They truly care and do a great job making sure our daughter is challenged and happy at school. We are very impressed with Timothy! The new facility is beautiful.

Wow! We are new at Timothy for this school year, after the school district rezoning. We moved from the highest ranked elementary school in the district. We have been very impressed. The new school building which is under construction is both beautiful and functional, and the teachers and administration are very excited about the great things ahead for Timothy. Almost every student is in walking distance to the school, and many do walk, bike or scoot along the sidewalks. Time will tell, but I expect the test scores to go up, up, up over the next couple of years . . .

Our whole family absolutely loves this school. Our daughter is receiving a great academic education and learning lots of good social skills as well. The environment is alive and welcoming. Neighboring Oconee County schools and one of the other ACC schools have high test scores as well, but those schools lack socioeconomic diversity. Timothy has apparently learned how to teach all its students, not just the ones who come in already well prepared. We're impressed!

We have been thrilled with the education our child is receiving at Timothy Road. He is very bright and we decided public school would handle this better than private school, at least at this level, as public schools seem to be more willing to create a customized curriculum. We were absolutely correct! His kindergarten teacher recommended he be tested for Spectrum (the gifted program) right away instead of waiting until January with the rest of the kindergarteners. This extra few months of Spectrum has been wonderful - it kept him challenged and provided a creative and academically rigorous environment for him. He also goes to second grade for reading every day and his reading has progressed to a high third grade level at 90-100 percent accuracy and comprehension. Most importantly, he is very happy. I know his education at Timothy is preparing him for whatever academic challenges lie ahead.
