Timber Ridge was not my first choice in Henry, and after a month of experience and speaking with other parents, it still isn't. It's an average school. It mirrors some of the problems plaguing the OTP, especially south - namely an inferiority complex and a resistance to true professionalism and diversity. The office staff is wonderful. Like at most schools, there are some wonderful teachers and administrators, and some you could do without. One particular administrator regularly shows a lack of respect toward colleagues and parents. Some parents are cooperative, sensible, friendly, and respectful, but a vocal group of others lament the changes in McDonough that are being reflected in "their" school, making simple things like lunch with your child and the car line for pick-ups unnecessarily tedious, uncomfortable, and even irritating. I have teaching and parenting experience with 5 other elementary schools in three different states and districts, and TRE ranks right in the middle. It isn't the best elementary school in Henry, and, like the county, it is reluctant to get ahead of obvious changes. Do not seek a genuine experience for your child here, but they put up a lovely facade.

TRE is a great school all of the the principal is very nice as well as the faculty. If you were looking to place your child in TRE it is a great decision!

We had a stellar year in Kindergarten; so I was expecting the same in 1st Grade. But, the teacher we got for 1st was not so great at all. My own child was called names in front of all the other students and then ridiculed to the point of tears and then another student was pulled from her class at the parent's behest because the teacher man handled the child a seated position on the floor to standing by his wrist. I am just glad this year is behind us... Here is to a much better year and fonder memories in the 2nd grade!

My daughter has been attending TimberRidge since Kindergarten and I must say that I was not that impressed at first and was not very fund of the teachers but I must say this year was probably the best year we have had. The parents are very involved and Mr. Tilt is a pretty good asst. principal. I pray for 2 more great years!

This institution truly provides the necessary foundation for student achievement and performance. Not all is it employed with knowlegeable amd caring leadership, but outstanding and trustworthy teachers, as well. The school is moving toward diversity and one would think that it has been around for years! My daughter is a third grader here and I just couldn't and wouldn't have it any other way. I was so impressed with the operation and the leadership of this school that I decided to follow my childhood dream of becoming a teacher. Encouraged by the faculty to follow through, I begin this year. If you are thinking of moving a child here, don't delay. They'll only grow developmentally and learn to become great citizens of society!
