I think that the Timberlane Regional School District pushes their kids way too hard to succeed. I understand that they want us to do good, but giving us so much homework and being slightly rude to students when they do something wrong is not the way to do it. I get fairly good grades, mostly A's and B's and the occassional C. But the teachers make it so hard to focus when they're pressuring you to do so well. Overall, the school system is okay, it's the teachers that make it difficult.
TRMS and all the schools in the timberlane school district are very good. The teachers are caring, helpful & awesome. Just an over all good school district focused on learning and making a great environment for students to grow. thanks!
My son currently attends the TRMS. Many of the teachers are nice, but overall if I had to choose again, I would not send my child here. Many of the teachers do not provide adequate communication. My child actually failed a course and I wasn't even notified prior to the grade coming out. The 6th overall seemed the best of the three grades. The system has also moved to a standards based education system, and that has been a horrible experience for us as parents, and for our child who is used to getting grades. And when he moves on to high school, it's back to grades again. And if you want to help your child what level of course to take in high school, accelerated or career prep, you can forget about that. The teachers decide for them, and parents have no input at all. It's been a confusing and frustrating 3 years. If you can send your child elsewhere, I would highly recommend doing it.
I currently attend TRMS and am disappointed with the teachers. I prefer my elementary school over this. My old teacher refuses to speak to me and often gives me dirty looks, although it was hardly any different while I was her student. Many teachers are disrespectful and treat us like we are four while they expect us to act more like we are twenty. The only unified arts class that I really enjoyed was art class. My teacher is very encouraging and I have gotten so far with her assistance. She is an exceptional teacher, although one of the few.
( my grammar is pretty bad ) but i have to say this is a horrid school i went their as a kid and the gym teachers encouraged others to bully me because i was different . Im not sure how they treated other kids their who were different .. and also the teachers were not very supportive . When i had trouble with my work they would get impatient and angry even when i tried my best .. best advice if you live in this area , HOME SCHOOL YOUR CHILD.. just for their safety : )
Lots of rewards and challenges for motivated students. Extensive opportunity in arts, sports and music.
Very disappointed in the teachers at this school. They tend to be disrespectful to the students and find the only way to handle concerns is through punishment, not inspiration. The administration is unavailable and difficult to reach. We left and found a different school
Coming from the elementary school environment, it's a huge culture shock to feel so disconnected from your child's education. We make suggestions year after year, and somehow nothing changes. It's frustrating.
My son went to TRMS for two years before I took him out to homeschool him. I never thought I would be homeschooling but he wasn't getting what he needed from this school. He was bored and considered a problem. Homework seemed like busy work and not of real academic value. He recently scored at a 12th grade level on the California Acheivement Test. He is now in 8th grade. Maybe HE wasn't the Problem.
i saw the review on here from feb. 2005 and i have to so agree with this person about the teachers being rude to the students i have 2 children there and both of them have complain to me about this.. both recieve special ed. and in those classes the get help with both have Fs what kinda help is this?if i could i would move out of the timberlane dist.i have had nothing but problems for 3 years and when my childern were in this distric in elamentry i had the same problems. i wish i never moved back.
I have to say, I was very disappointed with the academic quality at Timberlane Regional Middle School. My daughter was in the average math class and felt like she needed more of a challenge, so she asked her teacher to move her up to the advanced math class, but he wouldn't let her. When I asked the teacher personally to move her to the advanced class, he told me that it was only TWO WEEKS ahead of the average math class and that there would be no point in moving her. What kind of advanced math class is only two weeks ahead of the average class? Another point I would like to touch base on is the fact that the teachers are very rude to the students. One of my daughter's teachers was constantly belittling her and making her feel as if she wasn't good enough. Please e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org for_more_information. Thank_you.
