Grateful to: School leader
November 03, 2015
Mr. Flanigan - you are an outstanding leader and educator. Our kids were blessed to have your mentorship

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
November 03, 2015
The teachers that our kids had for all 7 years made their expectations clear at the beginning of each school year. Our students were able to achieve those goals

Amount of homework: Just right
November 03, 2015
The homework load seemed to be appropriate for our kids, neither too much or too little.

In our experience of having both kids attend both Timber Trails and Larsen Middle School, perseverance and hard work are part of what is expected.

Respectful behavior is part of the daily curriculum of TT school. We even saw improvement at home!

A couple of years ago, one of the Timber Trails students had a tragic accident, and passed away. This was devastating to the entire school. This traumatic incident was handled with honesty and so much compassion and counseling to the students (and parents!)

Respect and responsibility are topics covered repeatedly, and we have found the teachers and staff to be fair

The Timber Trails faculty is OUTSTANDING, and the depth of academic study (especially in math, reading and science) is equivalent to some of the top rated districts in the Chicago area, without the high real estate price tag! The principal, teachers and special ed staff are dedicated and extremely supportive of the needs of the individual students. The student to teacher ratio of Timber Trails is much better than the typical u-46 elementary school. The class sizes are medium, and the technology resources are quite impressive. The library of Timber Trails school is filled with a wide variety of appropriate yet popular book series for the students, grades K-6. The principal is approachable and thorough with expectations and discipline. The PTO of this school is filled with caring parents who are dedicated to offering additional opportunities for the students. U-46 also offers FREE instrumental lessons to orchestra and band students, and their overall music program has really improved over the past few years. To be honest, we were a bit leery about u-46, yet have found any concerns to be just unfounded . Thankfully, we have found outstanding schools in both Timber Trails and Larsen Middle School. I would not hesitate to recommend these schools to colleagues and potential neighbors.

My son is autistic and my daughter has type 1 diabetes, and the services they offer my children are outstanding. I also want to mention that the teachers are top notch and really care. I wish I had teachers like that in grade school! My daughter is doing better in math than her friends that attend better rated, or private schools. She loves learning, and although my son has developmental delays due to his autism, he has a great environment and support network that make him WANT to learn, and do great. They have lots of great friends, and the kids are so nice to each other, with hardly any bullying. I cannot recommend Timber Trails and their excellent staff enough.

Timber Trails is a great new school. Teaching staff is very attentive, and facility is very clean and well designed. They have many after school activities, as well as great out door fields for baseball, soccer, football, and running.

I have had children at Timber Trails for 7 years and have been so happy with the education they have received! The principal, staff, and teachers at this school are all top notch! The building is new and kept clean! The school has an amazing PTO group that sponsors countless events all year long! Would recommend this school to everyone!!

Timber Trails has great teachers that go above and beyond. The principal knows all the children and always has time to talk with parents. There is a lot of parent involvement and enrichment opportunities available.

My daughter started at this school 2010-2011. She came from private school. We love the school. The teachers are excellent, school is very clean and new, principal is very good and PTO is very actively involved. I highly recommend the school for neighbourhood kids

Was considering private schools until Timber Trails opened. The principal knows the students and always has time to listen to any parental concerns. My daughter's math skills are above her actual grade and the teachers have always managed to keep her interested by providing challenging material.

We built a house across the street and one of the reasons we picked the area was so that the kids could walk to school. The principal and teachers were great. I talked with the principal about my kids crossing the street, so they added a sidewalk and a crossing guard (they were also great too!). Academically they were also strong. The teachers saw that my son was more advance so they assigned harder levels of homework to keep him intellectually stimulated which I thought was great. Initial the ESL part of the school was a concern for me, but it actually had no impact on my son's education.
