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.

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?

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

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!

my daughter goes to Timberland and we are very happy with it. we came from a huge district Francis Howell and kids had one time to eat because it was so big. I do think though that we need to fix the parking lots. They are very dangerous for our kids. and hard when they drop off their siblings because they can't back on the road to get to school.

I personally think that Timberland is a pretty decent high school. I have experienced both Timberland and Holt High, and Timberland defenatly made me feel more at home. The teachers are nice, and know how to cooperate with the students, and the students help you to fit right in. Also, I love everyone who works in the office, especially the principals.

Timberland high school is amazing. I went there for four years, and i have a younger brother who now goes there. I had some really great teachers at timberland who all knew what they were talking about...Those of you with complaints, maybe you should make sure your kids were paying attention. There are many opportunities to be involved in extracirricular activites. I did track, basketball, cheerleading, and choir, all of which had good coaches or instructors. I believe i received a quality education at timberland, and i had a great high school experience. I would reccomend this high school to anyone.

Teachers don't teach. Do the teachers even know their geography? (Haiti is not in Africa!) Do they know how to spell? Do they know their grammar? (There is a differenc between 'there' and 'their'). Kids only know how to be cheerleaders (superfluous!), and not learn about what is going on in the world. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

I am a student at Timberland High and I think the school is wonderful. We don't have bad drug use, a lot of the students arn't sexually active, and we have a very nice structured school. It is still fairly new but there are a lot of students to make friends with. Although I do wish they would be just as active with choir or band or the arts.. as they are with sports. I also wish they would let me wear my cat ear headband. I don't really see how its a threat but whatever. Basic line the school has some crappy pointless rules but your child is safe and will most likely be fairly happy going to this school. Of course no one feels like going to school but its one your proud to go to. MEOW!

Timberland High School is horrible! I don't know what the other parents were talking about. My child has had many problems learning, the teachers do not get the information to the students in an understandable manner. I would highly recommend going to another school.

Timberland High School is FANTASTIC. My son is a freshmen at Timberland. This has been nothing but the most positive experience. I believe that this school will truly prepare our children for college and beyond. The teachers are wonderful and take time to communicate with parents. The quality of education is comparable to expensive private schools. It is truly the best I have seen in a long time.

I am not directly related to the school but I work with students at the different high schools across the state. I visted the campus last week and was so impressed with the school that I thought I would submit a review. From an outsider, who is constantly at schools, I wanted to say that this school is very impressive. The apprearance is wonderful but more importantly you can tell that the kids feel at home. The cafeteria was buzzing, the students all seemed happy, their were activities posted everywhere, the principal was out in the open and interacting, the teachers were smiling, and the students genuinely seemed to care and have pride. I walked out of the building thinking about what an example this school should be for all the others!

We presently have two of our 3 children attending timberland. Thewy are proud to be wolves, and this high school is reaping with success, from the principal to most all of the teaching and support staff. Being the newest wentzville high school, the activities available to students are numerous. Sports is excellent as is the booster club participation. I cannot wait until all 3 of our children have the opportunity to graduate from timberland. They will be prepared for tomorrow. I would reccommend wths to all parents moving into the district. Can you imagine living near the campus, and starting children on the south campus! boone trail elementary to south middle to timberland all within walking distance to each other!
