i am an eighth grader going into high school this year, trying to choose between liberty high school and Timberland. i am torn because Liberty just doesnt seem as fun as Timberland because of how little it is, and the fact that there are less people. i also struggle slightly in math, and i believe that Timberland may be able to help because of all of the other people. i also like to be in competitive band, so i think i may in the end decide to switch to Timberland instead of Liberty. I really am grateful that all of these great reviews have helped me to make decisions for my future. Thank you!

I have two daughters attending Timberland and they both love it. The curriculum is challenging and prepares them for college. We're very happy overall with Timberland.

I'm a sophomore at Timberland and recently moved from another school district and have to say that I've found Timberland to be a great High School. The teachers are experienced and that makes a big difference in the kind of education you receive. I will be going to college after I graduate and feel confident that I will be prepared.

I'll be graduating this year (Class of 2013). I've really disliked this school so far. The level of difficulty of classes isn't very high. Also, this school only really cares about students who are in sports related activities, it's really insulting.

I'm a past student, graduated a few years ago and went on to attend Mizzou, the school is relatively new, making the staff somewhat inexperienced but the experience comes with time, the district in whole is growing at a phenomenal rate so this is to be expected. As far as the education goes, if you put your mind to it and actually try to get something out of your education this school will adequately prepare you for a great future, wether it be to attend a university of join the work force. Though one subject I believe the school should strengthen is its math curriculum. During my first year at Mizzou I realized my peers were much more prepared than I was in math, requiring me to take a few more preparatory math courses somewhat delaying my degree. Requiring students to take courses to prepare them for college level math courses such as college algebra will quickly fix this problem, though things may have changed since I last attended Timberland.

the school is just kind of a dump. didnt really like it there either too much drama.


Posted December 2, 2011

Horrible from start to finish. If you have a special needs child avoid this "school" at all costs. Even my previously straight "A" kids dreaded going here. The staff all pretend to know how to run a school by trying to dress professionally and having about as much emotion as a corporate attorney....don't let them fool you, they're clueless.

Why do you love Timberland High School?
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted January 30, 2010

Timberland high school is not a good highschool experience for me. The only reason I go here is to be with my friends, otherwise I would have gone to CHS. I am only happy with a few of my teachers and I really dislike the principal.

timberland highschool is the best ever. it is a great school. i cheer there, & i love almost everyday at THS. i come home everyday with a new story about classes, boys, friends, classes, and more. most of the teachers make learning so much fun because of the way they teach. i wouldnt want to go to any other school.

As a mother of three graduating seniors from THS, I am willing to give an insight that many others may not. And my sons all had differenent needs from some minor learning diabilities to advanced student. Timberland is what you make of it. The excellent teachers are there to teach you and have you well prepared for college but it is up to you to do it. Having more kids, we have also experienced other high school which has no comparison. So if you are a student posting a 'review' obviously you didn't seek advice to help you achieve what you wanted. A teacher leaving a horrible 'review' seek employment elsewhere because you can not teach thoroughly with that attitude. THS - is not perfect but they try to deal with all issues. BTW, I will leave my name - I am not embarrassed. Debe Canaday

Awful Just Awful. This Piece of Crap School Is one the worst schools i have ever Worked for in my whole Life. The only reason i accepted the job offer was because it paid well.

I would not let my children go to this High School. I went to Timberland and it was so far behind academic standards in my previous school district that I was relearning subjects that I had covered in Jr. High School. Outside of the music program, I learned little at THS, and am gladded I transferred to a better HS (out-of-state, but there should be some decent in-state schools, for those who are looking.)

Timberland High School is one of the best schools! I am a sophomore this year and will be the class of 11! The teachers at this school are great at their job and the after school choices you get are super funn! Unlike some of the other high schools in our districe...Holt...Timberland is very clean and safe. I rarely ever here of drug use and out of the two years i have been here i've only heard of two girls being preganent. Over all Timberland is an excellent school and I never want to leave!

Timberland is the best. I would not choose any other school over mine:] I am a sophmore and my 2 years here have been two of the best years of my life. The teachers are amazing and super fun. I understand everything when they exsplain it. I am also a cheerleader for Timberland and our athletes are amazing including the coaches. This school is basicly just fantastic.

I am a graduating senior this year (07) and I am very happy with the education I have recieved at THS. The teachers have been amazing and always make sure to meet me halfway and to challenge me. The variety of activities that I can participate in are numerous. All the students are very very friendly and it's more like a giant family or community rather then just a high school. As I leave for college this fall, I know that because of the classes I have choosen to take over these past four years have prepared me for the real world and beyond. Thank you to all the teachers for being so understanding and amazing!

I have graduated from timberland high school this year. I don't think I could have mad it with out the help and support of the many friends I made and the wonderful teachers that I had. Every freshman is afraid of their fist day trust me I was terrified. But with all the students that attend this great school it wasn't hard to make friends quick. The teachers are very understanding of every students needs and will help as much as possible. You have to help yourself as well though. Timberland & the whole Wentzville school district is a wonderful place to settle down and start a family. Class of '06!
